A slowdown in performance graphics

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Good evening everybody,

I'm worried about my computer is a Dell laptop that is a year old and has 4 GB of RAM and a processor core i5 and after a few weeks, it has a slowdown in performance on a particular video game. I played a video game for 1 year and maximum graphics only a few weeks. I have to lower the graphics and the game still rowing.

I updated the graphics card ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650, but nothing has changed. Please help. Thanks.

Don't worry, your computer is most likely fine, it might just need a good clean up. Here are a few steps to clean up your computer:

Delete Your Cookies

  • Go to your internet browser. Depends on which browser you use, delete the cookies, histories, etc.

Clean Up Your Disk

  • Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup. Do once for each drive that you have.

Defrag Your Computer

  • Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter. Select all your disks and defrag.

Make Sure Your Computer Is Virus Free

  • There's a little dilemma here. A virus or a spyware can slow down your computer, so you need an antivirus to get rid of them. But then, sometimes an antivirus will also slow down your computer. I prefer not to use an antivirus, but I always be careful especially when accessing files from external sources such as a flash drive or the internet. Never open executable files (the ones ended with .exe) unless you're really sure that they are safe. If, however, you want to use antivirus, make sure you use the one that doesn't eat too much resources.

Now I hope you can play your game smoothly again.

Hello Brad Adams,

Sometimes the ATI graphics do not offer the best functionality when it comes to gaming, and therefore you will need to uninstall them and install other graphics that will offer the best graphic support for gaming. To uninstall the drivers, you will need to follow the following simple process:

  • On your computer, right click on My Computer and then System Properties.
  • In the window that will open, look for Device Manager and then click on it.
  • Among the list of drivers look for the ATI graphics under the Visual Graphics adapters and uninstall them by right clicking on them and then choose Uninstall.
  • Once the un-installation is done, restart your computer and then make sure that it is connected to the internet.
  • The computer will scan for hardware changes and update another VGA graphic adapter from the internet.

The computer should work properly now.
