|I have an Acer Aspire 7551G-5056, and it has a AMD Phenom II X3 Mobile CPU, and the gfx card is a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650. For some reason, playing games like borderlands, LOTRO, and Mafia II causes the display to go black, or a random color, then black. Like it's going to sleep mode, but it can't be woken up. The only way to get out of this display problem is to manually shut down the computer and turn it back on, or let the battery die, both of which are very bad ideas for computers. The odd thing is, it can run these games in highest settings with no problems. (Meaning they go smoothly. It's not my graphics card getting hot, as i've purchased a cooling pad and that does nothing to help except greatly lower the temps. This makes me think the problem is that these games require a 4 core system, and this is a 3 core system. |
Games it runs without display going out:
Batman Arkham Asylum (Highest settings)
All Source games
Lead and Gold
Hitman Blood Money
Rainbow Six Vegas 2
Those aren't all that it runs, but most of them.
Games it does not run:
Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood
Lord of the Rings Online
Keep in mind, the games that makes the display go out still run smoothly and at a great frame rate. So I can't imagine what the problem is.
