post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Hi, since there is ******* much dust in my laptop, it lags like bullslaga and that sucks. I have downloaded Riva tuner and see many nerd options and I have no idea what they all mean. Can someone plz say me how to set the options so that everything will run smoother?, however ugly the graphics will be. Thnx!

Lol nerd options?....what

Download MSI Afterburner, and use that to overclock your GPU, it's simpler. Also clean the dust out of your laptop by using a compressed can o air.

Nerd options....psssh.

Haha, I am sorry. I let dust cleaned out once, it costed 40 bugs, and it 3 weeks it was **** again. Maybe buying a cooler helps. But overclocking makes it even hotter, while I am trying to make it colder. But, I was meaning options like: mipmap, pixel version etc.

Well its a laptop, its going to get hot. As for all of the other options if your looking for the smoothest gameplay, set any detail settings to the lowest. As for pixel or shader versions i wouldnt touch those, then again Im on a phone and cant look at all the options right now.

It is already on lowest, what is excactly very sad cause the card has the capacity of running games on med/high. But why not touching it?

Well what are the options? Sorry about making you list them out, but Im nowhere near a computer ATM. What settings are you thinking about changing, and what are the values you can change them to?

The only other suggestion i can make is mess with them, changing 1 at a time, until you find something that makes gameplay smoother.

Note that none of these may effect the smoothness of the gameplay. What do you mean by smooth btw? Are you experiencing low FPS? Stuttering?

O and current driver version plox

With smoother I mean no fps stuttering. Ironically enough, underclocking the card with 40% helped, but not enough, and I dont dare underclock more.
