Laptop crash on 3D games..

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alright i got a

HP Pavilion dv7 3067nr

AMD II m500 2.2ghz
4gb ram
HD radeon 4200 mobile


Every time i try to play any 3d game even low quality like minecraft(all very low settings) it crashes about 30 seconds in....i thought the comp was overheating at first.

runs around 63c watching a full screen video....

I did buy a laptop cooler thing under and that actually let me play for about 5 more minutes before it crashed again...

I've tried reinstalling/updating directx,video drivers,even audio/network/windows update


any help?

Maybe your graphic drivers need some updating. Also try deleting and preference files left behind from previous drivers. There should be an application that sweeps the system for any outdated or unused graphic drivers but I forgot what the name was...

Is still under warranty? If not it sounds like it is over heating or you have a RAM issue, In fact I would just go strait to ram and download memtest (google it) then burn to a cd then boot to the cd.

Run stability testing software: memtest 86+, hyper pi, prime95
