    Its a laptop, Its not a gaming machine.

    You can't clock it or anything as it would get to hot.

    Use a PC like everyone else ;) ;)

    "Its a laptop, Its not a gaming machine..Use a PC like everyone else...."

    My laptop is just as good as "Anybodys pc here..." chk the spec out:p
    1.2ghz p3
    48hdd
    512ram
    15" uxga screen
    32mb geforce2 go:p (come on how many laptops do you see with a graphics card as good as this huh..?)

    It is a desktop machine too...but portable:eek: so that benifits me...don't want to argue in stating mine is better and so on...

    The i8100 plays everything so i dont know why this problem with gta3...alot of ppl are having this problem...who have 64mb graphic cards and a thunderbird processors etc...

    :confused:

    u may have great specs for your machine, but what he is talking about is the fact that is is very hard to get in there and change jumper settings, also it gets too hot inside the machine. there is not enough cooling in there to keep you from blowing it up. when you overclock, your card is going to be working harder, and when that happens, it generates more heat. more heat+no ventilation=boom

    i have a dell inspiron 8100 as well, except i opted for the top-of-the-line option of a mobility radeon 7500 64mb ddr. fact of the matter is a geforce2 go is not a very good video card... not even as good as a geforce2 mx 200 which is basically piss-poor. especially for a game like gta3.

    sorry, but there's really nothing you can do about it. }:\

    If your card has 32MB it's a GeForce2 Go 200
    Try a GeForce2 Go 64MB, or...
    Put a GeForce4 Go in it. If you got the cash to burn and if it fits.
