|Because I have lots of experience with computers and the whole installation process of Operating Systems, the idea of downgrading my laptop due to poor frame rates in Team Fortress 2 came to mind.|
As I am quite knowledgable in this process on Desktop PC class of computers and absolute new to Laptops, can someone please give me a little advice in this.
I have in my attempts to speed up my new system disabled all startup items, disabled all running programs and so on but still my frame rate is just a little weak for my taste.
As I know Win 2000 requires a lot less performance requirements, I figured on downgrading to this OS. However, is it even possible to do so on a laptop due to driver issues and so on. Also, I have a Windows Basic additgion as well on a laptop that would better run Ultimate or Professional, whichever this one is, so could I switch the OSes between the two systems and call Microsoft so I can reregister both systems?
I have no spare money and as this computer is new I do not wish to upgrade. The graphics are decent as it plays Counter Strike Source but lags just enough to be annoying during Team Fortress 2 even with all the graphics down to the bare minimums.
Any suggestions would be nice. Thank you.
