Usually these things are caused by overheating or a patch might be needed from the games web site . If the processor fan is slightly misplaced or a bit clogged up with fluff and stuff it can make a huge difference to the temperature . Another thing to look at is running a memory checker , just in case one of the sticks of memory is a bit dodgy , oh , and another one to be aware of is the power supply , is it man enough for the job ...

I am running new highend games such as crysis and currently play COD 4 and i have no problems whatsoever with these games????

If you can run Crysis, then it's nothing to do with the ram, psu, cpu or graphics card.

I'd be asking the game publishers if there's a known problem / patch.

You could also try playing it in compatibility mode.

You should also try uninstalling then reinstalling the game

can I suggest you start your own thread if you want people to see it.
Core 2 Duo is your best bet at the moment.

That's a good spec, but I don't know if you could get more for your £800 elsewhere. I'd recommend you buy a copy of PC Advisor and look at their top 5 laptop charts.

I've had a quick Google and it seems you are not alone in being unable to play this game on a pc which exceeds the min requirements by a mile. No fixes though.

I'd be wanting a refund.

  keef66 15:58 26 Jan 2008
