I believe the issue you’re having is graphics related Mr Chopstick!
You have an Intel graphics chip in that laptop. Intel graphics SUCK ASS!
It maybe that OpenGL with Intel and >Vista OS just won’t work.
This could be due to M$ changing the display driver arcitecture in vista and win 7, however ATI/Nvidia and co came up with workarounds. It’s possible Intel CBA.
Anyone else using Intel graphics and Vista/Win 7 with scorched or used previously and found it to be an issue?October 25, 2009 at 3:40 pm #58039
@orca….running single game player first was where I got the original problems. Target practice and the others on that tab produced same result. Went online after the dialed back settings seemed to allow it to run.
@ Peanut…..you might a have a point there Nutter….the toshiba had NVidia graphics. I had to fiddle with its driver when I put the win7 on the old lapchop and it worked fine. If you recall I also set the ‘Shiba to dual boot XP and W7….I still Think it was Raden and that damn ‘Hog that blew that Mboard…
Just makes no sense why this machine won’t run Scorch…Intell graphics or not.
I did find an update to the Intel 4500MHD chipset on the intell website and going to try it….it was released in sept………where the one reported “up to date” by the system is an Aug one.
Thanks again guys for all the advice and input…I know theres ALOT of computer talent here.October 25, 2009 at 4:47 pm #58040
its a known fact among retail games that intel integrated graphics do not support all of opengl and If I recall scorched relies heavily on opengl.October 25, 2009 at 8:01 pm #58041
I think…*crossed fingers* [-o<
tried “run as admin” forgot about that one Thanks Orca ran longer still crashed. Still chnaged the programs properties to run that way.
after downloading iNTels latest for this chipset, thing still crashed. then I found “control panel>all control panel items>performance info and tools“
I reran the thingie that re asses my “windows experience index” (where DO they think this crap up?) Guess you have to do this when you install something because it said it found new hardware.
After it took about five minutes to mull over my “new hardware” which i guess was the driver update package….some beach works….in fact it works REAL good….played a few rounds with two guys on main and it nice..Im still gonna turn the water off cause it and stoli makes my eyes go funny…
Gotta go clean the Hot tub then im back……I GOTTA BLOW UP SUMTHIN” 😉October 25, 2009 at 9:07 pm #58042
I am a bit worried about your new lapchop and that stoli stuff. Does it have a spill-resistant keyboard?October 25, 2009 at 9:39 pm #58043
alcohol is non conductive 😉October 25, 2009 at 9:57 pm #58044
I am a bit worried about your new lapchop and that stoli stuff. Does it have a spill-resistant keyboard?
Fortunately, it has the new style touch pad thats just part of the housing so the stuff I drop/spill won’t go in there.
I TRIED to find one with a cupholder…. :biggrin:October 26, 2009 at 12:03 am #58045
When you find one with a cupholder, I want one too!
My laptop runs scorched fine and it has the intel graphics chip. It runs it in Vista and Linux with no problem. Anyhow, glad you got it straitened out, I was looking forward to blowing you off the map!!October 26, 2009 at 3:24 am #58046
Poured into a live circuit (of sufficient voltage) 100 proof Vodka could cause both, a short circuit and a Class B & C fire.
alcohol is non conductive 😉
- 100 Proof Vodka : 10
Distilled Water : 0.1016
New York City Tap Water : 183
RC Cola Syrup : 1500
NEVER use FLAMMABLES around live circuits.October 26, 2009 at 3:49 am #58047
ok well pure alcohol isn’t all that conductive since it evaporates to damn fast. Hence why it is used in cleaning thermal grease off your processor and heat sink.October 26, 2009 at 11:21 pm #58048
Back to its old tricks….played on main for long enough to kill a couple noobs….and blooie…..crash city.
Back to the drawing board. ](*,)October 27, 2009 at 2:32 am #58049
