Your graphics card or lack of one can do this but they usually play but at very poor quality unless you are playing a game that required a graphics card you should be able to play it still. Does the game play offline? You could try downloading daemon tools lite and mount it to the fantom drive it gives you and try playing from there. Most games will mount but not all what game/s are they?

Pc laptops aint working


need more information. are the games you play online? if so, you likely need to uninstall/reinstall either flash or java. also try the games in a different browser. if the games are 'loading' but choppy and bad graphics, you don't have a video card driver installed.

Hello Yvonne,

this error message when your sound device is disabled. Try clicking on System in control panel then Device Manager then Sound and Game Controllers for the sound device installed on your computer. Click on the device you have used and then Enable Device.

I have a ati mobility radeon 9000. i have a real hard time playing pc games simple hiddin objects games, always says uncompatible does my video driver need to be updated and can i do it for free


Try looking on your laptops support page for the latest drivers.
Have you installed these games? what are the min specs it requires?
Are they online games? do you have an up to date install of flash?
Do you have the min memory installed to play the games?
Your graphics chip should be more than capable of playing basic games, it sounds like a driver problem

No sound


If the sound is not working please check the following:

Try Playing different type of sound files and identify if the problem is with all the files ? (Play a video online on youtube or so and a music file from your system)

If not then it could be software problem with the audio software like window media player and updating the codecs would fix the issue( download k-lite codecs from google and install it)

You should also check if the system sound is put on mute

You can do so by clicking on the volume control icon on the bottom right system tray or by openning the control panel then going on to Hardware and sound and then to sound (adjust system volume)

Else its most probably device or driver issue

Check first if the audio device is enabled

For this you got to click start and click Run or type RUn in start search and once you get the RUN box type in devmgmt.msc...this would open up device manager windows

In device manager check Sound Video and game controler, check i it has a cross mark (X) or an Exclamation mark (!) if so then right click and enable it if disabled or update driver if it has got exclamation mark

Even if this does not help then you will have to load the sound driver either from driver and application CD that you got from Dell or online from you computer manufacturer website

This would solve the problem

Thanks

When i play online games why is it so slow


You are right when you say it's really slow when you play games online, 1. The Game server is accessing by you through wires and network devices, so this makes the games slow. If the game is installed in your pc, there's should be no speed problem, 2. Network bandwidth will be accumulated by the game when you run the program, so don't take tension,... we are facing the same problem and it's just normal. There's nothing different. Good luck

WHEN I PLAY MUSIC NO SOUND


I believe most motherboards need those RealTek or AC drivers of some sort before they will play sound. Did you install software that came with the motherboard or PC that involve sound drivers?

Also, go in to Control Panel, System, Device Manager, and Click the + next to "Sound, video and game controllers". Is there anything listed under there? If not, or if there is a red X, you need to install the internal sound card drivers off a CD or find them online at the manufacturer's website, making sure you download and install the ones for your model motherboard.
