online gaming benifits from having 1024 ram installed. Far cry recommends this amount even when not online.

You might also want to wait for a new patch or something, as they usually address any online coding problems as well.

are u telling me ill have to upgrade to 1gig of ram just im playin on a brandnew laptop with 2.8 p4 512ram that should be good enough

If you have played other online games with no problems then there must be a problem with Far Cry.There may be a patch to fix it. Laptops are not the best option for games as the graphics are underpowered.

What's the memory in it's graphics card?

It might also lag in performance if you have spyware which hogs the cpu. Might be worth to have a scan of your laptop.

i agree with citadel
1gb of ram is needed more and more for online gamming

as NGE suggested check for spyware
go to click here
run cwshredder & then x-cleaner
remove any listed itmes
if xcleaner finds several items

download, install, update and run
spybot & ad-aware to get a more thorough cleaning
