My laptop isn't working as well as I'd like it to

9 posts in this topic

Pretty much brand new. It's a good laptop, one made for games. Even though I much prefer a desktop, it was a gift.

Haven't tried playing the game that comes with the forums until tonight. Played for about five minutes and then blue screen of death. Any suggestions?

Also for interwebs connections, I am currently at college, and there is wireless coverage where my dorm is. However, my lappy also accepts a regular cat5 cable that I plugged into a jack in the wall. Now I know that wireless isn't the best for games as it really isn't all that consistent in its signal. That's why I want to use the hardwire when I am here in my dorm. But my question is how do I know when I am using the physical cable connection and not the wireless? I don't think I need a modem, do I? Since there is already wireless coverage where I am I would assume that the modem would be connected to the jack in the wall, if you all know what I'm trying to say.

And no, it's not a phone jack.

Let me know if you need any more info.

Thanks for your help!

Almost all connections will default to a hard wired connection, if it detects one is plugged in, because they are faster, more stable and more secure. However, if you are still concerned whether or not you are still using the wireless connection, you can just disable the wireless on your laptop whenever you go back to your dorm. If the wireless is disabled and you are on the internet, problem solved.

As for the blue screen you're going to need to provide a whole lot more information that just "Played for about five minutes and then blue screen of death"

Agree with red on the wireless. Disable it to be safe when you want to plug into the wall (easy to do)

On the BSoD - Need to know ...

Your OS

Your CPU

Your GFX Card

Whether or not your SOUND and GFX cards have up to date drivers
