Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite L305-S5908 Notebook ?

Hello i have a toshiba l305-s5911. Im having trouble when playing PC games when i alt tab from them the game freezes and says not responding. I have looked for drivers for it no luck. This doesnt just happen in one game but most of my games. seems to be the ones with the direct x. if anyone can help that would be great. if it helps i have vista


Answers :

The Vista Direct X engine is known to be finicky at best and have issues, especially when dealing with minimizing games. I would recommend going to the Microsoft website and making sure you have the most up to date Direct X for your system. You can also go to start and type 'dxdiag' in the search box there. This should bring up a Direct X utility where you can test Direct X components to ensure they are working properly on your system. The only other thing I might suggest is you ensure your video drivers are completely up to date.

Good Luck,
