|I have an Compaq Presario SR5120SC Desktop PC. (Note: I have changed the Hard-drive and DVD Player.)|
And I recently a few days ago I reformatted it.
First I reformatted to Windows 7 x86. After a while I realised that my PC only has drivers for Vista, and it supports x64. (It came originally with Vista to)
Even though, when I tried to play games, such as Company of Heroes, which my computer is above recommended hardware. It runs slow as hell and loads forever, its not playable. And I had 1 out-of-date driver for Display.
I reformatted again to Vista x64. This time, all the display drivers are up-to-date, but its the same result when I try to play Company of Heroes.
Driver Detecive says my NVIDIA is out of date, Driver Navigator says its up to date.
I have downloaded the driver from NVIDIA homepage, and the homepage says its up to date. I doubt the problem lies on this.
THIS might be a problem. But I want to know what the experts think here.
I have 1 gig ram. DDR2. And Vista req like 800mib at all times. Task Manager shows a stable usage of 800mib. That leaves me with 200mb for games correct?
Company of Heroes wants 1gig. And i believe it means for the game itself, not including what your PC uses. So problem could be that I dont have enough RAM
But that dont really explain why it was the same problem when Windows 7 was installed. But then again, I couldnt install the driver update for a Display Adapter. (Not NVIDIA, some High Accelerator update)
What is the problem here? Anyone ever had the same?
