Question about ASUS P5PE-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

Hi am trying to buy my first Laptop and know seems to be able to help me

I want a laptop for college and, i do want to play some games like Guildwars as well. My budget was $1000 and i found this laptop for $1100 Asus G50Vm-X1. I have been told so many things am just not sure what to go with. I have been told get a better chip, and lesser graphics card, and the other way around. why would i do it either way? The graphics card in this laptop to my understanding is really nice, and the processor isnt that bad. It also fits into my budget and i have used Asus products before on my desktops. What would you say about this laptop? And what if not this might be a good suggestion in that price range. It wont let me put the Laptops model number below but here is a link to it's specs

Asus G50Vm-X1 is an excellent choice if you want a budget laptop powerful enough to play game at a not too high price. The 512 Mb cards will enable you to play recent games with efficient hardware acceleration.
If you want a pure gamer laptop, with top of the range CPU, you will need to start your budget from $1500 or so.
Do not buy laptops with two Gb RAM, they are slightly cheaper, but you will need to upgrade memory immediately if you want to play games.
Overall I think you are doing a good choice, if you buy a laptop with bigger CPU , you will have either to increase your budget, or to sacrifice some other resource, HDD size, RAM or video adapter, and you will need to pay more money later on, when you notice RAM is not enough or HDD is full.

Hello the is the homepage:

Your pc is probably overheating, due too many programs opened at one time, or dust in the cpu cooling fan.

Try to clean the cooling fan element:

It`s probably blocked by dust.
A pc repair shop, can help you with cleaning your pc, if you have no experience with that.

Try not to use a laptop, for big games, they will not last long.

Good luck

Hi there i have got windows 7 on my laptop and i have got afew older games for windows 98 which i cannot play would i be able to download a driver for windows98 on my laptop to play them thanks


In the computer world, Windows 98 was a very long time ago. I have many such games and would like to play them as well, If they will not play when you loaded the software, it is not likely you will find a patch to make them run.

I suggest you visit the software manufacturer sites and see if they have a updated version of the game.

If you find otherwise, please post a comment here to this quesiton.

My laptop freezes every time when i play a game. after 10-15 while playing game it freezes


hi.

Change your operating system to windows xp. update Chipset drivers, Graphics drivers and make your computer have a nice air flow by cleaning inside where the fan is. use a powerfull air blower when laptop is powered off and without battery..

dont put too many information on your hard drive.

Leave a space of a bout 15GB free space.

Your games will never crash again.

good luck

My laptop,dell inspiron 600m, got no sound,when i try to play audio it seems playing but no sound out,the same to video. I went to control panel all drivers are functioning properly.


I'd try 3 things first:

  1. Examine the laptop closely to see if there are any "wheels" close to the audio ports, not all laptops have 'em but if yours does try adjusting that "wheel"
  2. Uninstall all of the audio drivers in the device manager and reboot the computer.
  3. Check Dell's support page for your model and download the latest audio drivers for your system.
Let me know if what happens.

I can not play game in my laptop.when i open the game it says can not connect to d3d device.check directx.what will i do?


Hi!

Microsoft DirectX is a software for handling multimedia task, video and game programing. You can download DirectX compatible for the operating system that you use in your laptop.
here are the list, select the file suited for your operating system, click it and save to start downloading, once finished, install it on your computer.

1. DirectX10 - windows vista sp1 & sp2

2. DirectX 9.0c - windows xp sp2

After installing the right directX for your operating system, try to play the game and direct 3d settings will work..

Please rate if this solution work...thanks..

Will NBA 2k10 have crappy or still nice graphic when set to low?


Hi, I hope I'm writing....err....typing this to you in time for you to get your game. You definitely shouldn't worry about the game looking crappy on your laptop, and I'll tell ya why. 1. The PSP can barely match up to good lookin 2005 games, let alone 2009. 2. I don't know who told you about the whole "lowest settings" thing, but it seems they're wrong. After looking at the minimum requirements, you exceed them quite well. You have your dual core compared to a 2.4GHz single core, more than twice the RAM, and a somewhat better video card. With that in mind, I don't see any reason why you should have to worry about the way it looks, let alone lowest settings. I'm not saying that you can crank it up or anything, but you should be able to play with at least SOME settings on medium and not the lowest res. Hope this helps ya :)

Can NBA2k10 (PC) work for Nvidia 8200M G (128mb) (integrated)?


It can play it, but for a good rendering you should put the game at the lowest settings and at low resolution. Save a few bucks more and buy a separate video card.

Hp pavilion dv2000 display scrambles


Hi,
It sounds like the graphics chip is on its way out the only solution is to invest in a new laptop or look on places like ebay to buy a motherboard, you could probably find one from £10 to £100
