Q: HP ZBook 15 G2 Graphic Buffering issues in Games (Games free...

Hello, I try to play old and new Games on the HP ZBook 15 G2 but each time between 2 - 15 minutes the Game freezes while the sound is still playing for at least 5 minutes until I can play further. It seems like the graphics card is buffering something like on a Video stream until I can continue playing. The Games work perfectly before and after this kind of game freeze. Is this a known issue?What could be the issue? Usually Games should either lag, being slower with less fps, have screen tearing, etc. but somehow buffer a Game for minutes until it works completely fine again is new to me. The same Games work on a much less performant HP 840 G1 Notebook but of course I need to turn down the graphics options depending on the Game. What is also odd it seems in general there are issues with using ALT+TAB to get to Windows while in a Game which works fine on my other PC. Hardware: Intel Core i7-4810MQ CPU, 16GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4600 and NVIDIA Quadro K2100M What I tried:I installed the latest Windows 10 64-Bit Version with all updates, used the HP Support Assistant Tool to install every Update it found. After the issue still there I later tried to install the latest Intel Graphics Driver from the Intel website (20.19.15.4483 from July 2016), the latest Nvidia Driver from the Nvidia website from the stable branch 21.21.13.7563 from October 21st 2016. Tried to disable the internal Intel Graphics Card but e.g. Battlefield 1 is then complaining that they can't use it. I set the Nvidia Graphics Card Option to "Preferred Graphics Processor: High-performance NVIDIA processor" and also set the Nvidia Power Option to "Prefer Maximum Performance" and the Windows Power Options to Performance. Also when reducing the graphics of a Game to the lowest the issue still happens. The issue is independent of if it's a new or an old Game and if I set the graphics to very low or High or Ultra. I tried Skyrim Special Edition (Low and Ultra Settings), Shadow Warrior, Battlefield 1 (DX11 and DX12 Setting), Fable Anniversary, Enslaved Oddyssey to the West, Mafia II, Bioshock Remastered, Gears of War 4, etc. The Nvidia Control Panel installed the latest Game and Program Profile from October 27.

I have a problem. Whenever I go to play a game, I get funky reddish graphics with lines. all other graphics are good, like when I start up, and my desktop and webpages, it's ONLY when I try to play games.

Anywho, this computer is new to me, and I installed XP Pro on it when I first got it. As I was doing so, I got this error that told me I need to update BIOS, but I just bypassed it and continued installing, not thinking it would be a problem.

Now I've tried most everything to fix this problem, and nothing so far has worked. I've switched graphics cards, reformatted, changed resos, deleted/updated drivers, and nothing has worked.

Could that BIOS error have something to do with it afterall? And if so, how would I go about fixing it?

I have an Acer Aspire V66M, 7100 series, w/ Pentium II Proc, and A NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 400 Vid Card. Thanks to anyone who can help!

A:Serious Graphic Issues.... Playing Games...

I'm betting the farm that it's an integrated graphics adapter and you really don't have that much RAM to work with.
Why don't you go here and under the tab hard disk drives and optical drives, download the lates drivers for your model and check the software updates as well.
http://www.toshiba.com/tai/support/support_cons.jsp

It's best that you use their drivers updates since it seems that at the present time, you have no display drivers installed. After you update, I would then go to Microsoft's download site and download the most current version of DirectX. Without having the display drivers installed, DirectX just won't take.

Anyone playing games with an 8x AGP graphic card in a motherboard that only allows 4x agp card.
I read that 8x will play in a 4x slot but there 'may' be problems due to the voltage difference (0.8v (8x) 1.5v (4x)) I am thinking of buying a Sapphire 9600 Atlantis Pro 128mb card. (currently got a 64mb Sapphire 9000 Atlantis pro.

I know this could be a question for the Hardware forum but seeing as it is predominantly concerning games, I believe this is the best place to ask.

I been having a serious problem with my pc for the last 2-3 weeks.

I played a video game with a friend on my windows 7 pc, went to bed and the next day it just could not run that game anymore, i shortly after found out that most of my game could in fact not run properly anymore, we are talking games like, Red Faction Guerrilla, Metal Gear Rising Re-vengeance, Warframe and so on, while i could easily play other less power hungry games like Offspring Fling, Minecraft, Retro City Rampage DX and so on.

The games will lags/stutter extremely hard and the and lightning and effects will go crazy while the mouse cursor is kinda going slow-motion, it seems like it's trying to load too many thing's at a time while going almost slow-motion, but the odd thing is that the sound works perfectly normal.

I was wondering if anyone can help with a recent issue. I have been playing World of Warcraft just fine on my system for about 3 months. Recently the game has been booting me out frequently...thinking it was due to a patch...so I tried some other games I own, such as Sacred, Everquest and Diablo 2. I have been getting bad "graphic lag" on WoW and these other games as well. The defrag I did on the hard drive took about 3hrs. Visually judging the fps on WoW would seem 3fps (thats how slow it seems). I did a virus check as well as spyware check on the system but nothing unusual came up other than typical tracking cookie spyware. Here is a listing of my system specs that prior to last night ran very good on all games I have. I havent installed any programs or software in ages exept for updated video drivers and Directx about 3 weeks ago. Ive also reinstalled WoW thinking it might help, it didnt.
Any help would be appreciated if anyone had this issue before.

I've been getting odd Distorsions in various games.

In WOW, I'm getting "jumps" in character movement as well as constant slowdowns.

In Age of Pirates, The Characters all move VERY fast with constant Jumps and Slowdowns as well.

Also, the Graphics thenselves aren't anywhere near sharp as they were. Only thing I've changed was that I exchanged my CTS monitor with a LCD flatscreen a few months back but it only improved my gaming after that.

I've tested my Graphics card with dxdiag with no errors and I've tested my RAM as well with no errors. I'm at a lost as to what's causing it.

hey there.... just 2 things that worry me in your explanation.....firstly, did u install the drivers from the installation cd AFTER the latest nVidia drivers?? if so, reverse that ....

Secondly, the latest version of direct x is the directX 10 series.... The 6600LE graphics card is still based on directX 9. I'm not entirely sure if it is compatible with the directX 10 series.... if you have installed directX 10, try reverting back to 9 and see if it works....

Hi, a few of my games and flight sims look bad on my monitor and it's a chore having to tweak the monitor and video card settings to improve the picture every time I load them, then adjust the settings again when I exit and go back to general PC use. 
I've got an Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 and I'm wondering if there's an option or something that would allow me to lock a certain set of brightness/contrast/gamma/colour settings to a particular game, so that the settings automatically kick in whenever I load that game without me having to tweak them in?

A:Can different graphic settings be locked to different games?

I don't know of any actual settings that would do what you want, but there is an app from Nvidia themselves that I think will get the job done. Here's a link to a quick story about it

I have an old emachine running XP for my 5 yr grandson to use so he didn't ruin mine.  I've noticed that when he goes to certain sites, the graphics are bad.  Like trying to watch some videos, there will be a row of thin, horizontal lines going diagonally across the entire screen.  I recently bought Crazy Machines for him to play.  I knew we were in trouble.  As the ad screens appeared, the logos would be cut in half and jump around the screen.  When he got to the actual game, the screen was a mess of jumping geometric figures and blinking objects.  I tried running Windows update to make sure everything is updated on this computer.  That didn't help.  I've tried messing with my display settings a little but nothing helped.  We have other games with simpler graphics that play just fine.  I'm not a gamer so I'm lost.

Hi TFS! First post :)

I'm aware there are probably a million posts like mine, but I assure you I turn to you as a truly last resort. My PC has been at the lab for weeks and they simply don't seem to be able to find the cause of the issue.

So my PC restarts during play in various graphic heavy games such as: Crysis 2, The Witcher II, Max Payne 3, Battlefield 3...

It never restarts when playing games such as Counter Strike: Source though.

I've tested many of the plausible causes:

- During restart, the GPU temperature reaches 75c (which seems within acceptable range)

- Full scans have been made in the lab to check the Hard Drives. No errors found.

- Tried clean installations of Win7 as well as Win8

- Updated nVidia drivers

- I have suspected the RAM, so not being satisfied with the lab scan only, I tired to take out each RAM stick at a time and see if the issue is resolved. No such luck.

- I have suspected the PSU. It was checked in the lab and by the technicians it can hold even if I add another video card like the one I have

So I guess that's it. I'm truly desperate and out of ideas . I would love to get some helps from you experts.

My specs are:

CPU: Intel Core i5-2320 CPU @ 3.00GHz

Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC model P8P67-M

RAM: Kingston 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 x2

Video card: Nvidia Geforce GTX 570

PSU: (Sorry can't remember the brand..) 550W

Thanks in advance everyone!

Whenever I am playing a graphic intensive game, such as GTA IV, with my laptop plugged in to its AC power, it lags. However, the instant I remove the power cord from the laptop, the FPS triples and the game runs smoothly. I have already checked my power options and I have Performance mode on. I also checked the advanced settings and everything looked fine in there. How can I diagnose the cause of this problem?

A:All graphic intensive games lag on AC Power but not on battery

Welcome to TSG!

I remember a similar post about this very issue, can't seem to find it right now though.

From what I can remember;
-Some systems did this by design. (Something to do with how it used the voltage from the power brick versus from the battery. Was kind of like a design flaw in a way.) Can't remember the brand most effected by this design.
-There may be an issue switching GPU's. (If yours has two)
-Could be hidden battery saving features that kick in and disable background tasks, helping game performance.

I don't really know much about the voltage monitor programs but others here do. You might be able to take a reading while on AC and battery power, see if there is a change.

At my wits-end attempting to locate the issue I'm experiencing.

Problem: No graphics intensive game can be played on my computer ---- BUT everything else is perfect! It starts fast, excel, word, internet, multi-tasking & working, quick-books..........runs absolutely fine. With Windows 7 amazingly fine.

Story: Once a game starts (example: Arma2, The Ship, Star Wars the Force Unleashed) the screen freezes and the monitor, after a few moments, will switch to "No Signal" -- albeit the computer remains 'powered on'. I then hold the power button to shut her down.
Upon a restart the computer is perfectly fine without revealing any errors.
Here's my checklist of where I'm at (going on 2 or 3 months of attempting to solve this):

Power supply - tested on two identical 750W Dell PSUs, happens with both
(Dell XPS 750W Power Supply NG153 N750P-00)

Graphics card - tested on 8800GTX, & two 9800GTX+ - happens on all 3.

Graphics driver - NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM v1.1)
Provider - Nvidia Driver Date - 5/14/09 Version - 8.15.11.8593
with Windows XP I tested MANY different graphics drivers....to no avail.
At the moment with the fresh install of Windows 7 I am using what was apparently automatically installed onto the fresh hard-drive.
Can't figure out the Nvidia number for it -- but I don't think this is a driver issue upon 3 fresh OS installs and numerous different drivers in the past.

I have a BSOD problem. I thought it's only dust build-up so I cleaned my PC. It went well for a day, but then it happened again. When I don't play games, or when I play lower quality games I have no problem. But when I play games like Skyrim, Black Ops, Revelations, etc. it happens in around 10min time period.

A:BSOD playing high graphic games

Quote:
"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps

Greetings

I have been having a problem as of late dealing with a random screen crash during games.

The game will start up as normal and run smoothly until one point where the game has loaded in to the main menu then the monitor will black out for a brief few seconds then will display a kind of Coloury pattern across the screen (which varies every-time the game/s crash/es).

At this point there is no possibility of backing out of this pattern on-screen with no keyboard or mouse responding to anything I do (ALT+TAB; ALT+ESC; CTRL+ALT+DEL etc.) I have waited for 20 mins to see if it will respond but it still retains the screen, I think that this is to do with my Graphics Card (GeForce 6600 GT) because my computer is still playing sound while this screen is happening.

The games i have tried and failed to play listedWorld of Warcraft: Cataclysm
Borderlands Game Of The Year Edition
Titan Quest
Titan Quest: Immortal Throne
Minecraft (when utilising the Full Screen option found in a FPS increase mod)(OptiFine)
League of Legends (known to me to crash like this but does not always)

My Graphics Card is up-to-date Drivers-Wise and my computer is clean and running smoothly with no overheated components.
Playing a game in windowed mode does the same except there the coloury graphic is just a black screen.
The Specs I can remember are listed in the "Specs Page"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

While playing League of Legends or Smite i've been getting some frame freezes every 3-5 minutes. If I open Diablo, or any other game I don't have any of these problems though.

I never had this problem before, and this has just come up after i reformatted my computer to get my OS on my SSD and have my HDD only for storage. I've put high power in the power settings. I've also put force voltage in MSI Afterburner settings.

Hi TenForums!

First of all, this is my first post here, although I've followed many threads before without an account. I hope I come to be of value to this community.

The main reason I'm writing though is another: I purchased a Clevo P650RG laptop, and I going crazy with BSOD's when gaming. Oddly, they seem to happen only in some games. So far, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Skyrim Special Edition and The Crew. They don't last 30min without giving me BSOD's, always related to ntoskrnl.exe

Although, these game are somewhat secondary to me, as I'm more into sim-racing, and I'm able to play Assetto Corsa with my G27 wheel for more than an hour without any problem. So I'm assuming it happens only when I push harder for the hardware since Assetto is relatively light on it. Also, I've working hours straight on it without problems.

I've tried a lot of drivers already, mostly CPU and GPU, but I'm lost. I don't think the problem comes from faulty hardware, but if so I'd also like to know if there's a way to check that (already ran almost half of Memtestx86 without errors though).

I'm attaching a zip created as instructed in "BSOD Posting Instructions" in case someone has a clue of what's going on.

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
EdwardFFS

Whenever I am playing a graphic intensive game, such as GTA IV, with my laptop plugged in to its AC power, it lags. However, the instant I remove the power cord from the laptop, the FPS triples and the game runs smoothly. I have already checked my power options and I have Performance mode on. I also checked the advanced settings and everything looked fine in there. How can I diagnose the cause of this problem?

ok, ive had an interesting problem here lately on my comp. i have a dell 1.1 ghz, 256 ram, 20 gig hd etc on ME, and yes, it is a laptop i also have the geforce 2 mobile version. anyway, when i play worms armageddon (WA), which is a simple 2d game, the screen gets jerky and it lags, both online and offline. ive now played a sequel to this game, worms world party (WWP), and on that theres no lag at all, which is weird. i play WA off a cd but ive been playing wwp ONLy off my hard drive. furthermore, when i play graphic intensive 3d games like return to castle wolfenstein or deus ex, i get little to no lag or jerkiness in offline gameplay. does anyone know y this could be happening in worms armageddon, even tho its a 2d game? i suspect this might be the problem tho, as some video cards have trouble dealing with 2d games. another thing ive been thinking of is that my cdrom drive is slow-it is a laptop, so they dont have the same high speed drives as regular desktops too, which creates a slow in games. could that be the culprit too? the whole thing just confuses me cuz i get more lag offline in a 2d game than a 3d one. sorry for the long post, and thx for anyone's help

So, when I try to run Trove or Tera. My PC reboots entirely. I recently re-installed Windows 7 and everything should be fresh. I believe I attained the correct drivers and I've used CCleaner to get rid of any excess old drivers that may have been there, but I don't believe so. I wanted to follow up with a memory test on ram but I don't have a blank CD or a usb to run the proper tests, I tried a windows tool to do so but in event viewer the test just comes up blank with no details as to what occurred.

Hi, i got a problem with my new laptop its an HP mini 110-1020La, i've installed some games like age of empires 2, age of mytholgy and dawn of war but i cant play them, when i start a game an error message pops up "could not initialize graphics system. Make sure that your video card and driver are compatible withDirectDraw" or "Failed to initialize video card" what should i do?
 

A:Can't play games on my new laptop (could not initializa graphic system)

My initial thought would be that your graphics card (Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950) just doesn't support something the games require, this can be a fairly common problem with laptops.

The requirements for Dawn of War would support this as a requirement Hardware Transform and Lighting (T&L) which the GMA 950 does not have. It does support T&L but through software, not hardware.

This shouldn't cause a problem with Age of Empires 2 or Age of Mythology I don't think as I am not aware of any particularly difficult requirements for those.

If this is the cause of the problem there isn't really anything you can do apart from getting a new laptop with a graphics card that supports those requirements (they can't be changed in most laptops). I can not say for sure that is the cause though!

A:Computer restarts when playing graphic intensive games

Without any dumps or logs, it's hard to tell but my first guess would be that you're running out of power. Your PS says it supplies 54A on the 12v rail. (I would venture to guess it's less.) PSs don't like to run at peek output for very long. Your video requires 30A, CPU about 15A, Motherboard about 7A. That's 52A right there. Then add all your fans, drives and additional hardware. But, as I said, this is a first guess.

PC Specs:
P4 3.2 GHz

Windows Xp Sp2

Beginning about a month ago (had this home built PC for about a year or less) I started encountering a problem with some new games such as M&M Dark Messiah, Warhammer Mark of chaos, and even World of Warcraft (which worked fine in the past). The problem is when I would start playing the game I would within minutes start experiencing graphic glitches/tearing and then freeze-ups that would last around 10 seconds at a time, and they would continue until my computer would shut and restart.

My first impression is that my 3D card is overheating, however World of Warcraft for instance is working fine now after I followed a couple recommended fixes (deleting game cache folder,etc) and adjusting my graphic settings. Unfortunatly I can't really pinpoint what was the exact problem was since I did a variety of things untill it started working fine.

Logic tells me its my 3D card crapping out on me, but instinct tells me that its something else because why would world of Warcraft work fine, along with Warhammer 40k, but certain other games freak out? Another quick example, I had this graphic glitch freeze up problem happen to me again with Never Winter Nights 2 during character creation??? Only 1 simple 3d model present during creation, so this shouldn't be causing overheating.

A:PC Graphic glitches/tearing + Freeze ups during certain games. Plz Help I'm stumped

Thats quite unusual. Your Pc specs are very good, a 6800GT should have no problem rendering detailed 3D. I have a 6800 GS and it can run Neveriwnter nights 2, and Mark of chaos fine.

The only thing i can personally think of, is your systems background services, sucking up your RAM, and causes it to jitter and lag out. Have you taken a look in your task manager under processes? If you have a lot of processes running, and they are taking lots of memory (15,000 -> 30,000K) you could probably do with shutting a few of them down to free up some RAM. Not just any ones though, you need to make sure not to stop important system files.

Goto Start -> Run -> Type "msconfig", when it loads, goto the services tab, and check the box at the bottom that says "hide all microsoft services". Then you can select "disable all" or disable a few, and keep the ones you need. This should free up some RAM.

-- Other helpful tips for top performance --

1) Run a disk defragment. If you have a partially or badly fragment hard-drive, it can cause your games and applications to run rather slow, and load slower.

2) Try using a program such as SpeedUpMyPC 3.0 , or a registry cleaning program. To remove Junk files, privacy intrusion files, and clean up your system registry.

Hey all, I have had this issue for a few days now and I think its the graphic card causing it.

Currently im using a Nvidia 560 Ti and last few days when I try to play some semi graphic intensive games I keep getting the "graphic driver stopped responding and has recovered" every single time, and if I continue playing after I get that warning, after a few minutes the entire computer freezes and I need to do a hard reboot. I have tried different games and I have this issue on games like Skyrim, Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 4. However other games that is less graphic intensive such as Starbound, Eve Online, all works fine, I can watch 1080p movies all fine aswell. Note that this started just a few days ago, I have been able to play all those games above without a problem for a long time.

I have tried various things like checking temperature (which is fine, howers around 50 degrees in games), I have tried updating drivers to latest beta drivers and other various settings in the nvidia control panel, without success.

So my question is, is there other things I could try, and is my graphic card really the issue? I have ment to upgrade it, and maybe it is time, if yes any suggestions? Im a fan of Nvidia and I have been thinking about the GFX 770 one.

Thank you in advance

Edit: I did not try downgrading, im downloading version 331.65 at the moment to give it a try.

Try completely uninstalling the graphics driver. Run CCleaner to fix any registry errors. Also try reseating the card.

it has a 3.0ghz dual core processor
8gb ddr21033hmz ram
1 raptor, 2 x 1tb drive
gtx 295 zotac edition
700w psu

I recently did a fresh install and decided to over clock the graphics card a bit. did lots of research on the web found the highest for my card with extra cooling etc..
over clocked it fine using msi afterburner and everything still ran fine.
(i put it up to 700 core clock, 1500 shader and 1100mV from 1021 mV)

However a couple of hours later when i did a stress test there is a reasonably loud buzz. Not to sure where from but think it might be the PSU
this only occurs when under a lot of strain and afterburner shows the gpu use as above 60%
its not stupidly loud, but is noticeable.
I have since underclocked the card and the sound is still there when under gpu intensive applications.

Is this something to worry about? I dont really fancy a new psu as they are hard to find ones designed for the BTX form factor.
Or is it just a fan?

BTW latest drivers and everything

I've been having this problem for a while now, and I stopped using my Windows desktop and started using my Chromebook instead. I just got back into using my desktop again, and I restarted it factory fresh.

After installing all possible Windows updates, installing the latest graphics drivers, and installing Directx 11, I can't get my game to run. And videos still don't play, that's strange because I restarted my OS. I thought this would be fixed. I can't even run Sony Vegas Pro 12. There's something wrong with my graphics card.

When I access dxdiag, the program crashes. The next time I run it, it says that it had trouble running Direct3D, and if I would like to bypass it. When I check the display tab, I can only see the name of my graphics card "AMD Radeon 6570". But I can't see the manufacturer name or anything else like I usually could before this problem.

If there's a solution for this, I would greatly appreciate the support.

A:My graphic card isn't functioning properly, games/videos won't load

i understand you've formatted your HDD and Reinstalled Windows and updates, and installed all drivers for all your hardware.
Since you did a fresh install with latest drivers I assume you have installed the latest AMD catalyst Software suite.

When you check Control panel\Device manager\Display adapters and double click on your GFx card, does it show anything unusual?
Also, post your DxDiag logfile if you can.

About a couple days ago it started to get intense artifacting then the display driver will crash receiving the typical message of "display driver crashed due to taking to long to respond"- but it mostly crashes playing mildly graphic intensive games, sometimes i get crashes just being on the desktop, but it's rare
So far i have tried

Installed new drivers
Reinstalled windows
Reseated GPU's the ram as well
updated bios

Asus p8z68v/gen3

I am running a quad sli setup, and for the past 6 months I have had no issues. No when playing games like Wow or crysis, I get random crashes. I'm trying to figure out if it is a hard ware issue or a heat issue.

I do not overclock anything, and I recently reduced my sli from quad to triple to try to reduce heat by opening more flows in my custom case. The errors in the who crashed did go from : NVIDIA Corporation SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M in a quad config to a NVIDIA Corporation VIDEO_TDR_ERROR in a triple sli config. I did update all drivers and bios, but I'm still getting these random crashes with dumps.

A:Random crashes playing any games or graphic intense operations

A stop 0x116 is a display/graphics related error, and a big lot of a computer's hardware/software environment is responsible for it.

The next time you find yourself with time on your hands, head here to play. All of the games are written in Java, so you don't have to download anything special to play them. Best of all, they're free! Test your typing skills with Word Shark or your brain skills with Tip Top. I'd write more but I have to go back and play Dynomite.

A:free games?

Warbirds was a good free flight sim, WWII online combat. Dunno if it's still around, but I suspect so.

My favorite free sim of all time is called Orbiter, a ridiculously detailed space simulator. Don't think Wing Commander, though. This "game" is all about realistic space flight. I sometimes call it an orbital mechanics simulator. It's spectacular for a free program, though I guess not for everyone. Worth a look though if you're interested in that sort of thing:

Whenever I am playing graphic intense games my computer will blue screen with the BSOD crash error STOP 0x00000101. It usually happens within the first 5-15 minutes of play This computer was recently built at my local Frys Electronics 3 days ago.

I own a Portege A100 and I need to update the graphics controller in order to play some games.

My problem is i went to the download centre and the latest driver is currently installed in my notebook.
I have had this game running before but had my notebook reprogrammed and can't recall how to make it work.

Please help!

Hmmmm.....to be honest Portege is not notebook for gaming. Maybe for playing chess but for some graphic intensive games is definitely wrong notebook.

Anyway, the question is what you want to do.
Do you want to play some games or just to get old (already working) game to run again? Or maybe both options?

Sometimes i get bsod while running games. i don't know whats causing this, i pretty much don't know about bsods.
I just suspect the reason is there is secondary/primary graphic card on my computer, its called apu.
Device manager shows two display adapters, one of them "AMD HD 7660G" (my processor is AMD A-10 4600 APU with Radeon HD Graphics).
Other one "AMD Radeon HD 7700 series" says the device manager. (HD 7730M Chelsea Pro says the sticker on laptop)

I had this issue both before the format, and after the format. .dmp file is the first bsod after format.
I will try provide information if you ask anything else than posted.
I would appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks!
Note: User Account Control disabled on my computer. If this info helps anything.

A:BSOD playing games, or opening high graphic related programs

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
A stop ox116 is a display/graphics related BSOD. And your display driver seems to be out of date.

Code:
Image name: atikmpag.sys
Timestamp: Fri Mar 23 07:42:25 2012 (4F6BDC09)
Update your ATI/AMD display driver to the latest WHQL.
You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.


During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Been looking everywhere for some free games for my mac. It's not connected to the net very often (ok, almost never), and the only game that it came with was Chess. I like chess and all, but I'd like to find some other FREE games to put on there that don't have the "this is the demo, would you like to buy the real version for ONLY $25?" pop-ups every ten seconds. Some solitare or other simple games like that would be great. I'm not trying to make it into a gaming computer, just looking for something to occupy my time between classes.

A:free cell and other pogo games

3 reasons why you would get that error.

1. You might be low on RAM. How much RAM do you have?
(A way to resolve that is to have a minimum number of programs running while you’re playing the games. That way your computer has the memory resources it needs to properly run the games.)

2. This error message was displayed incorrectly. There was some other problem and the server mistakenly sent you the wrong error message. Try clearing your browser cache. (Always the first and easiest method to do).

3. The Pogo server is having problems. Try back again later - if you don’t get the error message again, you can be pretty sure it was a temporary ‘glitch’ with Pogo.

I'd try clearing out your browser cache first (delete your cookies and temporary internet files).

Hope this helps
