Hi, When did you buy this "top of the line" laptop exactly?
Also doe sit freeze up at any time other than whiulst playign WOW?
Also what is the model of the laptop? or what is the specific model of the chipset? e.g.g965, p965 etc?
how do I tell that designation? I did not know there was a designation beyound 965. I purchased the lap top a little over a year ago.
And I guess yes it does just happen when I play WOW but perhaps that's because that's the only gaming I do on line.
What model is it?I can tnen have a look to see if i can find the exact chipset.
So do you play other games, but that aren't online?Do they work?
The computer is a Gateway model M-6849
Also I'm not quite certain which download to use because my computer nomenclature says its a 64 bit but my computer guy tells me its a 32 bit
99% your OS will be 32 bit. What OS are you using?
I have had a look and can't find what motehrboard you have in the gateway so... try the intel driver update utility http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/detect.htm
If that dosen't work go to http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Graphics&ProductLine=Laptop+graphics+controllers&ProductProduct=Mobile+Intel%C2%AE+965+Express+Chipset+Family Pick your operating system and try those drivers.
The reason your computer says " computer nomenclature says its a 64 bit" is because most if not all hardware can support a 64bit OS as well as a 32bit OS.
Also you didn't say whether teh system freezes only with WOW or any other games?
Since WOW is the only game I play on line I have no way to know how it works with other games. But here's a real good hint. My lap top worked perfectly with the game until one day a new patch came out and all of a sudden it locked up and crashed. I've beenusing the /console fixedfunction 1 fix ever since so that the game would even work.
