You could build a great desktop for the price that you payed for that laptop; one that would easily play BF3 on high settings.
calming down, but still on a tight feeling keyboard. I'm sorry that I made so many mistakes. Yes my problem seems to be with PB. All my installs went smooth. but when I go to BF2 to play an online game I get kicked after about 10 seconds at the most. BF2 gives me some PB error message. "RESTRICTION : Service Communication Failure: PnkBdtra.exe"
I've googled the problem but the files google tells me to delete aren't even there! I may have to just reinstall the OS and start fresher then brand new, cause that's what I'm working with. ( I just got this laptop 4 hours ago).
All i'm asking from this overpriced laptop is to play bf2 (which came out in 2005 so it shouldn't be a problem). But PB is keeping me from gaming. If I can over ride PB and play with cheaters I'm cool with that so please leave that as an option. I just want to play online! so Win7 is new to me, I came from XP. But when I search for the PB files that google tells me to delete I can't find them, they seem non exexistant as far as my computer's HDD is concerned. So I keep reinstalling the same (up to date) PB programs that Goole tells me to install. What do I do? reinstall the win 7 OS and hope for the best, or has someone else ran into this problem and knows how to fix this issue? I don't think asking for a game from 05 to work is too much to ask from this laptop but apperantly it's causing me problems.
