|Have you a seperate video card? If so what is its make and model number? If it is a separate card try cleaning the edge connectors with a soft pencil eraser - it can sometimes help. |
As you appear to have a laptop, it is most likely that it will have an inbuilt graphics chip. If it is inbuilt graphics it might not really be suitable for playing complex games, which require sophisticated graphics. If this is not down to graphics limitations then a hardware fault is most likely.
I find it hard to see how this is a software issue. With software you follow a sequence of instructions and it's difficult to see how such a sequence can be stressed. Hardware is a different matter which can be stressed for all manner of reasons (including heat). It could, for example, be over-burdened with instructions from the software and not be able to keep up with them.
Having seen the screenshots this one just reeks of hardware problems/limitations to me. Why else would it work fine with lesser loads such as browsing and movies?
Just my 2C worth, as they say in the states.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
