It;s overheating, or bad drivers !

try updateing all u;re drivers (from the producers site) especially u;re video drivers .

if this does not work, then if u can monitor u;re comp's temperatures. Also try to provide it with good air flow (it should have some space between it and the surface it;s seating on), clean the vent holes if they are cloghed with dust ...

u can also try to test specific parts of u;re computer (disk, memory, processor , video card) ... and see on which test the computer fails, so that u would know what causes the problem and then try fix it...

My display driver R3000 or w/e, messes up like everyone elses, but not while im on yourube..only while im on World Of Warcraft.. ive spent months trying to fix the problem..ive done everything i believe i...


It is possible that your VGA is malfunctioning. But you will notice it when the screen resolution is set to a specific resolution and color depth.
Games play at it's own resolution. Not at the resolution you set for Windows. Probably WoW is setting the screen resolution and color depth to a values at which the VGA fail.
Did you try changing the screen resolution in WoW options? If not try it. Also try changing color depth.
Also, download GPUZ and check your VGA.
Best of luck!

I have a gateway NV55C03u, The fan isn't turning on or is running slowly when ever i go to play World of Warcraft (WoW). I have never had this problem running WoW before, and i would like to know if buying...


does the fan run normally when doing other things?
Does the fan make any unusual noises?
Is it dirty, or coated with dust?

Sometimes cleaning and oiling will keep you working for some time.

Graphics lagging, stuttering in world of warcraft


Try this once
World of Warcraft System Requirements
The World of Warcraft system requirements are impressive. World of Warcraft requires a large amount of memory, hard drive space and, above all, a solid
internet connection.
For a Windows system, the minimum World of Warcraft system requirements are as follows:
- Intel Pentium III 800 MHz or AMD Athlon 800 MHz processor
- at least 512 MB of RAM,
- 32 MB graphics card,
- DirectX 9.0,
- 6.0 GB of hard drive space
- 4x CD-ROM
- 56k internet connection.
However, the recommended World of Warcraft system requirements are substantially higher:
- Intel Pentium IV 1.5 GHz or AMD XP 1500+ MHz processor
- 1024 MB of RAM
- 64 MB 3D graphics card
- broadband internet connection
- A two-button, scroll-wheel mouse is also recommended.
Millions of players connect daily to the World of Warcraft servers, and the amount of information being transferred from any one computer to the main terminals is enormous. But with all of these numbers and with all of these devices, frequent gamers know they will need to go above the minimal system requirements to experience the game fully. The minimal World of Warcraft system requirements only guarantee the game to run; they do not guarantee the game to run in a playable fashion.
There are some other known issues to keep in mind
- Some video cards may experience problems displaying certain textural effects while playing. Graphic issues may include colors shimmering across static textures, textures that appear solid green or white, and patches of texture or even geometry that are invisible.
- World of Warcraft/Burning Crusade requires the latest version of DirectX.
- Also, it is important that your video drivers are up-to-date and compatible with the latest version of DirectX. Outdated or incompatible video drivers can cause a variety of video and game play issues.
Something else you should keep in mind is that World of Warcraft had multiple expansion packs and down-loadable patches and these are also a factor into the World of Warcraft system requirements. Overtime, the specifications have shifted, and will keep shifting in the future; what was once acceptable to run the original game is no longer adequate for some expansions and patches. This will force players to upgrade their computers, if they wish to run the latest versions of the game. Gamers really have no choice; in order to compete, they must have the latest World of Warcraft software and a system that meets at least the recommended requirements; otherwise, you will keep stumbling around.

This is a great peice of software that will cure your problem with overheating on a Dell laptop. You still need to clean out the heatsink and fan to get optimal performance. Share it with your gaming buddies that have a Dell laptop.

Laggy computer?


have you deleted history , cookies , temporary internet pages? also when is the last time you defraged the computer?
also you can try : right click on c:/ in my computer and click properties then disk clean up and it will calculate , when the next window pops up it will show you the description of files to delete and you can click on the more options tab to also remove old restore points or windows components ( not recomended )
let me know if that works or if we need to see if you have a virus that is causing problems
