Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire 5100 I am supposed to be producing 3.6 Mhz but when i try to play games that require about 1.5 i have a hard time playing it. It is very slow and it becomes nearly impossible


Answers :

This could be due to a number of things. To start, the number of programs running when you try to run a game would be the first thing I look at. When windows starts, select START-RUN -in the text box type MSCONFIG. When it opens, select the startup tab at the top and you will see a list of programs, all of which have lil boxes next to them. the ones with checks in the boxes are programs that open when windows opens. all of these eat system resources and you can uncheck the boxes for all but things related to your keyboard, video, mouse and virus program. Now reboot the system, you will get a message stating you used the system configuration utility to change the way windows starts, just hit ok.

\015\012this should free up a lot of system for you.
\015\012you should also check for video card updates at both acers site and ATI. I believe that one comes with an x1200 ATI chip, but with the unified drivers available , one of the newer drivers might work better for gaming.
\015\012 the aspire 5100 is a very dependable middles of the road computer, but you will find as you start gaming a lot , you will expect more from your computer.
\015\012 It is capable of having a video upgrade as well as using 4 gig od 400mhz memory. I'me almost posative it's not shipped with that much.
