    You can try to squeeze a bit more fps out with stuff like that.. but not alot.
    Agree 100%. But for them older machines every little bit helps. :)

    My brother uses my gaming desktop. I gave it to him. My laptop plays most games fine. Especially CF. But I was wondering for editing purposes, because obviously my graphics card was not compatible with certain programs.

    How would I "tweak" for pc gaming... :)?

    P.S. I do not want to overclock my laptop.

    I know. Thank you for the website. It will help with a few things I was actually looking for answers to.

    Like Crack mentioned,

    blackviper's windows7 configuration is what u can use to tweak.

    go for the tweak version or barebone.


    use jetClean to clean your registry, and use Gamebooster or jetBoost to boost your application performance.

    Disable indexing maybe.


    your laptop is near the top of the line. so not much u can do but clear out all the junk wares. use only MS security essential and Ad-aware.

    I'm planning to buy a new graphic card (not just for CF, but other games also), any tips or recommendation I should know about?

    I'd like to say that it's been along time since we have a thread this friendly and productive :D. I was so tired of the stupidity some people have shown on this forum.

    Really good card. You need a 750W PSU for it though. Too much?

    How can I check what kind of power supply my computer have :p

    It will say on the Power Supply. Just open up your case and look at the sticker on the side of it.

    Alright will do. So if my power supply is ≥ 750W, then I'll get that card.

    Any more suggestion? In case my power supply is lower than that ;)

    Definitely gonna purchase it if my PSU can handle it. Although reviews mention the card tends to overheat, might have to get a cooler for that :/

    Giggletron, my HP Pavillion dv5 notebook has his keyboard broken, 5 letters do not work and I went to a shop and they got me a new kayboard so they could put it on this one but what they received was the black keyboard, after waiting for that Keyboard for 3 months they told me that my computer is a special silver version and that they do not make more of these keyboards so I can't repair it;

    so if you can find a website that can possible getting me one (ships to Portugal) which I highly doubt you will (or even bother which is normal) since they told me that I couldn't but it's Portugal, incompetence level is over 9000 no matter what.

    anyways, I am using the keyboard of my old desktop which is working perfectly so how can I disable the touchpad and the keyboard that is implemented on the laptop so the only one in use is my Keyboard and Mouse which are connected by the same usb pen?

    Thank you,
    this way I will manage to write even more RANDOM posts, dat u love.<3

    i would have
    Except for the fact that i was shocked when i looked up the import taxes on luxury electronics and it was 55%
    basically everything here is a lot more expensive
    So i just went for a ride and checked out all the parts
    I've made up my mind but i dont have the currency yet
    would you recommend a geforce gtx 870 ? i found one for a bargain

    I would only recommend a GTX 560 Ti or better, that's what I have.

    Or a AMD HD 6800 series or better.

    Anything less means you will need to buy another GPU one year later.

    Are you good with Mumble junk? Because when I start Mumble everything else plays through the speakers except for the voices of others. The TTS even plays through the speakers... I can't fix it. Exclusive is unchecked, my device is correct, I could not set the headphones to the default device, only the def. comms. device. I got it to work when I use to have Mumble but I've wiped my HDD recently to get rid of so much junk, etc. so I had to re-dl it. Now when I run it this problem occurs.

    P.S. I was on with you, Rory, Natt, and Cookz. :o

    have you heard of Dolby Axon?

    You need to not only defragment your harddrives, but also


    OPTIMIZE your harddrive(s), which windows does not do for you.



    You need to download DISKTUNE or one of the other softwares that will OPTIMIZE your harddrive for you.

    It will take hours and hours to optimize a harddrive but totally necessary if you have never done so.

    Hmm, what exactly does optimizing do?
    I've defragmented before(with auslogics), but don't recall optimizing.

    300 dollars impossible for a decent build
