Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have the a74mx-k, most recent bios update. EVGA 9600gso vid card. 430w pwrsupply. For some reason, the setup will not play star wars galaxies. It will stutter and then lockup and require a crtl-alt-delete taskmanager to close. Sony was less than helpful. Most recent nvidea drivers. HELP!

Hi,

The motherboard is good enough and so is your graphics card so i don't see any reason why the games not playing.
Games like star wars galaxies are memory dependent as well as processor dependent.

How much system memory have you got installed in the system? Also have you got a decent AMD dual core processor?

If you think that your system maybe lacking in system memory the what you can do to play the game is set all the settings of the game to medium. That way you can play the game while you wait to upgrade the system.
The game should run on a far less powerful machine according to the system requirements of the game.

If I was you i would uninstall the game and then perform a system defragmentation (defrag), then reinstall the game.

If you want a decent defrag program then i recommend Defraggler >>>>

Download and install the program. Run Defraggler and restart the computer. Install the game and see if it will play without locking up.

Let me know how you get on just in case you need more help.

Good luck.
