Nice Video card... consider also the performance of the processor and the amount RAM of your system... Also in playing games there are Anti-viruses that really affects the performance of your computer... if your not on the online game... try closing some applications to increase the power performance of your PC.

The video also relies on the processor.
I'm sure you closed all of your programs before you play any game.

Try increasing your page file.

  • Right click "My computer", then click "properties".
  • click on the "advanced" tab. In the "Performance" seciton, click "settings".
  • Click the "Advanced" tab.
  • Under "Virtual Memory", click "change".
  • click "C:" in the table/menu/list.
i have a brand new - f12857b.jpg
  • select "system managed size". OR if you know your disk limits and performance limits, you could change this to suit your needs.
  • click "set"
  • click "ok" to all the boxes that pop up.
  • restart your computer.
If this doesnt help, look for any updates or patches to your specific game.

Or, you may need a CPU speed of at least 2 GHz and 1.5 GB of RAM.

I have a zalman case model z11 plus/z11 hf1/z11 was wondering is this case compatible with water cooling fan as I heard its good as am building a gaming pc.

If you cant put a water cooler in a massive zalman case like you have, you had better learn how to. The basic sets go together like Christmas lights.

I added a new Intel PWLA8391GTBLK Gigabyte Network

Most likely your internet provider is MAC based - which means that the internet connection is tied to the distinct identity of the LAN card. You will have to call your ISP and tell them about that, to make the appropriate modifications for your new LAN card.
How you can find your new MAC: Start > Run > type -  cmd - > Enter and  new command window will open > type -  ipconfig /all  - > the MAC will be displayed in Physical address, write it on a piece of paper, the ISP will ask you about it.

My desktop will turn on but the screen mouse and keyboard dont, i dont know whats wrong.. A while back my old nvidea 9800 burnt, I bought a new 9800 gt, it powers up fine but i still can't get anything to...

have you tried hooking an external monitor? if still it does not have any display, i think its the slot that is having the problem. you also said it was not recognizing kb and mouse, so probably usb port or ps2 port is damaged too. i suggest you have your motherboard replaced. or, first, try updating your chipset driver.

Lenovo IdeaCentre k210 57088756 motherboard burnt. Processor is Intel Pentium Dual Core processor E5200. MTM is 53135CU. Any suggestion for a compatible replacement?

There are a huge range of motherboards to choose from. Stick with the well known brands and with the functions that suit your requirements.
My choice of brands are Gigabyte, Intel, MSI.
If you are into gaming and video editing etc. go for a motherboard without a built-in graphics card and purchase a separate high end graphics card.

Texture Freezing

download a GPU monitoring tool here..

check the temps for your video card... if it exceeds 55-60 degrees celcius. its probably heating up. try to upgrade the GPU cooling. "Palit, inno3d, galaxy" these brands usually has crappy cooling systems for their cards. Plus, the nvidia 9800 series is known to produce alot of heat.

I've had a similar problem like yours... I've had a 9800GT inno3d.. it has a crappy cooling system to i had to buy it a zalman graphics card cooling system. It solved the problem...

Motherboard will not start

It seems like there could be a short in the system. Check to make sure that the board is tight in the case, and that no foreign objects are causing the motherboard to short. If there is no obvious problem and the motherboard is new, I would return it as a defect.

How much should installing I tunes on a new gateway FX model slow downloads from other links?

If the resources for the machine are a quad core processor with 6 gigs of memory and a 640 gig hard drive, then not at all. Are you running Windows Vista 64bit edition? Ive had issues with itunes running properly under this OS. Grab the latest copy from Apple's website (make sure you uninstall the old copy first, do not install the new copy on top of the old one). Check for any Windows updates and install them before installing the new itunes.

Game problem

Try it in a friends computer to see if it works there. If not, then there is a problem with the disc. I'd take the game back to where you bought it.

3 most likely failure points:

Monitor failing: install known good monitor.

Video chipset or video card failing: install new vidcard.

Cables loose/pins damaged: tighten connections/replace cable (or vidcard if pins damaged)
