Hello!
anyone knows in computer stuff?
graphics cards... games system requirements...?
can a 8400M G with 512MB VRAM and a PIXEL SHADER of 4.0 run cod 6 mw2 on all-low?
when i tested cod4 on cyri(canyourunit) i passed minimum but nor recommended requirements, and cod6 have only minimum requirements and when i tried it on cyri i passed the minimum.I can put ALL video settings on LOW, the important is that i get good fps in multiplayer and singleplayer

Also take a look on this:

Since it's a laptop
by Jimmy Greystone / March 9, 2012 9:39 PM PST

Since it's a laptop we're dealing with, or at least something with a mobile graphics processor, I wouldn't even bother. Even if all the details are on low, when you introduce network latency from multi-player, it throws everything else out the window. You could have an absolute top of the line computer, with linked video cards, and still wind up getting the crap kicked out of you because of network latency.

However, none of that has much to do with the fact that laptops make for one of the single worst gaming platforms there is. Small keyboard, small screen, poor response rates on the display (for gaming), trackpad instead of a mouse (the little nipple thing some laptops have isn't a whole lot better), and most damning of all is the the fact that the CPU and GPU will be stripped down versions of their desktop counterparts. Not adding to things is the fact that laptops aren't as capable of getting rid of excess heat generated by things like games. There is also less room for that heat to go when it starts building up, so it just sits there slowly baking all the internal components.

You want to play PC games, save your money to get a desktop where you have some options as far as upgrading the GPU go later on. You want to play games on a budget, get a console. You only have to buy the hardware once, instead of being on a never ending upgrade treadmill with PC gaming, and with a console after you have the hardware all money can go to buying games.

When I read 8400m I thought of the recalls and the wave of failures out there.

You will not want to stress this GPU. Don't do it.

Who knows

Who knows. The hardware might be capable of it, but there are so many other factors that play a part, primarily having to do with software, it's impossible to tell until you try. Then there's Bob's comment on why it would be a bad idea to try.

It's your laptop, so if you want to risk it failing catastrophically, that's your prerogative.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
