Satan incarnate... or Dell studio 1558
same thing. anyway, i need help. i recently came in to possession of this ****e hole of a computer, and i am frustrated to no end. not too long after i got it, it started popping up hard drive error messages. it started blue screen core dumping every 30 minutes. i gave in and spent the money on a new hard drive and it seemed to be working OK. but then i tried to play World of tanks. i was getting about 5 frames a minute and it took me 10 minutes just to find the close button. i dismissed it as a poorly optimized game and tried TF2. same thing. i was getting suspicious. i then opened chess titans. a ****ing 3d chess game. HOW INTENSIVE CAN IT BE??!!?? same ****ing thing. i don't have a huge amount of experience with this kind of issue, but i know something is wrong. all the drivers are up to date as far as i can see, so does anyone know what is wrong?
any help is EXTREMELY welcome.
thanks in advance!
