Poor framerate with game- how to improve?
\015 I just recently purchased a HP lappy (dv6815nr) and I need some advice on what would be the best route for me to go;I was very impressed with the speed of the laptop up until I played World of Warcraft. The frame rate is not so great and actually effects game play SO I was trying to figure out what would be the best thing for me to do to up the frame rate because in-game options/prefs didn't help at all when I cut them all down to the bare minimum. It must be a hardware issue. Now, I was thinking either getting rid of Vista since it's such a Ram hog and putting in XP...OR...since my Ram is expandable to 4gigs-I would expand it. But, I'm at 3gigs right now so would it really make all that much of a difference? Or if you can think of something even better than the two options I was thinking about- please let me know! (besides buying a better lappy ^__^ )\015
First of all if you are running vista what ever amount of ram you have in your computer you can just cut that in half the second you bought it. yes its that much of a hog. yes liberate your computer and get rid of vista. getting xp would be a good first step but i dont play WOW but if you can run it on linux by all means that is the best solution. oh and if you just added ram dont expect any change. the main thing that ram contributes too is how fast your computer will run on the internet. more change will be seen with how many windows you have opended or the speed that you can surf the web at. over all solution would to just get rid of vista, maybe add some ram for a slight performance boost,three isnt getting you anywhere, and try running an operating system that has a smaller footprint, linux if it can run WOW or xp. (try using both and only going to xp for gaming thats what i do)
Sounds like a dual core problem. is it athlon if it is youll need the dual core optimiser. i have same problem unfortunatley i dont think the optimizer works on laptops, bugger!"
