Shut down all other running applications.
Am I reading this correctly?
You added another gig of RAM and now you're having problems? Are you saying you were not having the problems before adding RAM? If so, the corrective action becomes simple. 3 GB is an odd combination and we don't know how you've populated the slots or whether the modules are even compatible with one another. I'd doubt there's a way to optimize performance with that combination.
havent found out the problem,but i have another question
how can i upgrade from 32 bit -64 bit????????????
Hard to say because ...
you haven't told us what Operating System you are currently using and what OS you would like to go to.
Fill us in on the details.
If that 2.4 Ghz processor is a single core it rally wouldn't benefit you much going to a 64 bit OS on such a dated machine.
sorry about that
am running win 7 home premium,and the peocessor is a dual core, my rating is 4.9,
any thing else?
If your PC came with Win7 installed
it is probable that your system can accommodate the 64 bit version of the OS. If this was a retail purchase of the Win7 DVD, it probably came with both the 32 and 64 bit versions. You are allowed to use the one disk of your choice but not both. You cannot upgrade from one to another but must do a clean installation if changing to 64 bit. If you remain at 3GBs of RAM, you'll not be taking advantage of what the 64 bit version offers in the way of being able to accommodate more memory. You'd need to go 4GB and upward but this doesn't mean you'll get a noticeable performance boost such as trading a Vega for a Corvette. Hope this helps.
OK, now I see also that yours is the ...
GeForce 9500 GT but you haven't mentioned whether it is the 256 meg or the 512 meg version. If you have AERO enabled you aren't leaving much for the card to handle graphic challenges that games offer.
You also haven't mentioned WHAT GAME(s) you are having problems with. I will say that the begin to start then just shutting down sounds like what I have sometimes run across on computers brought to me that I discover P2P software installes on and upon questioning I discover that the games causing their problems had been aquired either through file sharing or via cracks. If this describes your situation you have found the probable cause and cure.
If that didn't describe your situation please tell us which games and we can take a look at system requirements.
You mention having a "rating is 4.9" but if the graphics card has 512 meg on it that doesn't look right. What are the 5 component sub-scores? Not being nosy, just trying to pinpoint the problem.
9500 gt 1 gb ddr 2
fear 3 is a game for example, i used the skidrow crack, with the pc rating the 4.9 is the graphic score, everthing else is 5 and up.
You said you used a "crack"??
You're going to find that there's no support offered when someone asks for help and admits to having pirated software on their PC.
"SKiDROW is a cracking group known for breaking the UbiSoft DRM protection. SKiDROW has released their content since 1990, having originated on the Amiga out of the ashes of Paranoimia. Skid Row continued for two years on Amiga before internal conflicts led to them disbanding, with members like Blackhawk returning back to resurrect Paradox. Between 2004 and 2007 they seemed to have faded away, but since 2007 they have released many things: trainers, games and cracks. Although they were releasing many games, they truly became well known in the gaming community after cracking Ubisoft's first DRM version. Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic and Assassin's Creed II utilize this type of protection, and both have been cracked by SKiDROW, among many other games. Ubisoft's second DRM version has also been cracked by them, in games such as From Dust and Shaun White Skateboarding. Their most recent release is Assassin's Creed: Revelations for PC which was released 9 days ahead of the official date."
We can't help. Sorry.
the solution is likely what I said previously:
"I discover that the games causing their problems had been acquired either through file sharing or via cracks. If this describes your situation you have found the probable cause and cure."
I hope you have also assiduously performed malware and rootkit scans with reliable scanners. If not try them in Safe Mode and in this order:
3. Super Anti-Spyware
3. Sophos Anti-Rootkit - http://www.sophos.com/en-us/products/free-tools/sophos-anti-rootkit.aspx
Surprising how many people have great trust in people who steal software simply because they then allow others to use it after undocumented modifications. Surely they would never do anything that could possibly be bad for your computer.
