Gateway FX laptop Series Thread *mods and upgrades* - Page 196

post #1951 of 2327
Sadly just checked the Gateway Japan site, as we usually get first dibs on newer computers and usually a bit more horsepower then the Western world models. Nothing new to report on anything new. Looks like the P7900 series is the most updated one. Currently using it as my main gaming rig here in Japan and all new recent games work flawlessly. The laptop does run pretty warm and an oil heater to keep the house warm does not help much either.

Hello all. My computer is a Gateway p-7805u, with 8186 mb of ram (8 gigs) an Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTS (1 gig), and, most importantly, an Intel X9100 Extreme Dual Core processor at 3.06 ghz. Here is the problem: Ever since upgrading my processor I have experienced lag often in some of my more intense games, such as GTA IV and COD Black Ops. However, it's only laggy during demanding sequences of the game. This leads me to believe that the power hungry new processor is taking power away from my graphics card, which makes the overall experience laggy. However, I am not sure this is the case, and if it is, I don't know how to fix it. Help?

It might be because it's pulling too much power or something hardware related. Maybe defective ram? It's really hard to tell since no one else can confirm the problem with a loaded laptop like yours.

Maybe try reinstalling windows vista or using windows 7. Or new drivers for your graphics card

I already do have Windows 7, home premium. It is legit. How could I tell if I had defective ram? I have heard of this happening to others with X9100s and they undervolted their processor. Would this help?

Run software like prime95 for 8 or more hours to test both cpu and ram. If your ram is bad you can run memtest outside of windows and it will show an error if its faulty

Okay, I have a problem and it is making me nervous. Here is the deal.

I just got the T9900 3.06GHz. I currently have the T5500 1.83GHz. I am running 64-bit Windows 7 on the P-6860FX.
I am looking for a BIOS update, but I can't find a single one for Windows 7 for my model!
I am desperate for help. First off, simply, do I need to update the BIOS? I am almost positive I do, but just checking with those with more expertise than I.
Secondly, help. Hahaha, where could I download the BIOS update, and once done, how do I update my BIOS? Would the instructions on the first page of this thread still work?
Thank you already for the responses. I will much appreciate it!



EDIT:
Okay, nevermind. Just saw that the P-6860FX cannot run anything over 800 fsb. Now I am thoroughly dejected, but only out about $70 dollars after resale and bying the x9000. Now, is the x9000 the best option for me? It's between that and the T9500, really, and money isn't much of an issue.

I figured out that any game that uses my cpu intensely for an extended amount of time causes lag. This does not happen outside of games, so as I stated before, I think the lag is caused by my processor and my graphics card battling for power, not due to temperature. Could anybody else with an X9100 and a Gateway FX laptop help?
