just got a new vista laptop http://support.packardbell.com/uk/it...6F06301&g=1400
it came preloaded with vista premium and a bucket full of useless packard fluff so i formatted and installed vista ultimate and then loaded on the drivers from the above link
i can't play any games, here's some pics
when trying to play COD4
when trying to play a demo of the first GRAW
when i try to play san andreas, its as if there's no graphical power there what so ever, it lags like a mofo, unplayable and no nice textures.
here's my settings.
Now i realize this laptop isn't a gaming beast but it pisses all over my previous laptop that could play quite a few games, this should handle COD4 on some lowish settings but im getting no where with anything, i even tried the demo of Stranglehold which requires you to sell your home and car as its that demanding and i got right up to the start of the level and got the health and gun status its just the rest of the screen that was black, like there's no graphics there at all, somethings wrong here but i don't know what
I don't like Vista one bit and im thinking of rolling back to XP (but all the drivers for this laptop seem to be in vista only on the packard site) ...it would be good if it gets sorted in vista though as my works software will be vista ready in a months time
