Need help with new laptop
Return to board index
I got a new laptop recently. It's much nicer than the desktop I was using before, and I believe it should be able to run WoW at least mid settings if not better. The only issue I'm having with it is that every so often WoW freezes and I have to ctrl+alt+del out. I was hoping that someone more knowledgeable with computer might be able to help me out with this issue.
It's very hard to say without seeing it.
Is it the same internet connection? If so, you can eliminate a intermittent signal.
Are you getting a WowError message when you tab out? If so, what's it say?
Have you tried running the Repair.exe application? Has it helped?
What other programs are you running at the same time? Try bringing up the task manager and looking at the other applications running, and see what's eating a lot of CPU cycles.
Hope this helps get you started!
Ok thanks. It was the same internet connection at, but through wireless instead on the line since the desktop was on that. That is when I started noticing it, but I assumed it was the computer since I had just gotten it.
I'm not getting any error messages other than "Not responding" in task manager.
I haven't tried that but I think I'll look into it now. Thanks.
I checked my processes last night after it did it 3 times in an hour. I noticed I was running 76 at the time. I ended what I knew to be unimportant processes, but that left me with 73 still. I didn't wanna chance more cause I don't know what they are.
EDIT: I assumed you meant the Blizzard repair thing in the WoW files. I ran it but nothing came up.
If you can connect to the internet through cables, try that. This would eliminate the wireless router as the culprit.
