How to improve performance of sig rig?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This laptop I have is mainly for school work. However, I would like to be able to play minecraft with it. The rig already gets warm as is, let alone the importance of this rig neglects the risk of overclocking. I was wondering of ideas that could improve on its performance so that minecraft is playable?

HP also has docking stations with intergraded graphics cards in them. Nothing special, but based on an old work model from many years ago they appear to have x300 graphics chips in them. They probably have better graphics chips in them now, probably equivalent to a HD4200 or HD3200 and wondering if this may be an option?

Cheers on any input.

I'm not sure that anything besides Word and Firefox will run well on a 1.2Ghz processor I know it's a HT dual core but still. You could try a laptop cooler besides that I really don't see how you can improve the performance.

I'm sure it is the same or similar CPU in those alienware netbooks. Although it isn't great, and I agree, it does it's job as a school computer. I'll give that a check, cheers.

Oh, haha, I'm not looking to cool it, I was just saying that the computer gets too hot as is under heavy load that pushing it up 10C for a overclock is not going to have it last through uni.

How demanding is minecraft? I've played it but not for more than an hour. I found it boring :s

I'm sure you know this but you can't magically make your CPU perform like a 980x but you "could" do some OS tweeking to make windows use less resources and then in turn you would have more the for game

Here are a couple guides
One
Two

The second one is a little more in depth

Remember always back up the registry before making changes
