Satellite A500 - game starts only when you run fraps


I have a Toshiba Satelite A500 with an i5, nvidia GT330M with 4 GB of RAM card, I only use drivers for toshiba and in dead rising 2 there are some significant slowdowns tried

Patches as rename the dead rising2.exe etc., it did not work, I play my resolution 1366 x 768 and with shadows and zombies at the top with 16 AF, leaving the vertical sync, sampling and blur to the broad, the game is full of similar slowdowns trolling (character begins to run slowly).
More funny thing is that when I recorded with fraps (lock the framerate on) I can play smoothly with no slowdowns at all, I even tested and set of 4 complete (AA) and turned on the vertical sync and the game was playable with no slowdowns on very large crowds of zombies, when I play normally without stil fraps recording, when the game slows down Press f9 for fraps to start recording and the game starts immediately

Race "smooth", fraps makes very large files and in a short time it would fill my drive, the program limits setting I tried but delays were still present:-no opinion on this subject or

possible correction for the game?

Hi fiurion,

Very strange what s... To be honest I never heard tell that it is only possible to start the game when you run fraps...

You have installed an antivirus or firewall program that could block the start of the game?

Also I recommend that you install the latest version of DirectX and display driver.

  • Satellite Pro L300D started crashing when you are connected to the projector

    Hi all, I have a Satellite Pro L300D, have since January. In March of this year, it developed a problem.
    He began to turn the power on and off screen until I got the blue screen of death and had to reboot the laptop, also BIOS crashed. He was sent to Toshiba and got sorted.

    I use the laptop in the Church for the presentation to the powerpoint, we use a projector that connects to the video output on the laptop, but it has now begun to crash whenever I connect the projector to your laptop.

    Can I use the powerpoint, switch to the view of presenters and show the presentation of 30 minutes, then the screen goes black for about a second, the laptop and the projector off, then when they come again, I get a message saying that the display driver has been restarted, little after that the screen turns off, and then market / stop about six times before that I get the BSOD.

    Also, if I show a clip AVI or video during the presentation, it will crash soon after or even before its done.

    Have updated the drivers for laptop, I always get a message stating all the drivers are up to date and I am quite at a loss to know what to do next.

    To be honest, I'm so fed up with it that I am almost to the point of buying an Apple Mac Pro and away from Windows-based computers all together, my friends have macs and they never have any problem.

    Someone at - it an idea on what could be the problem?


    Hello James

    Can you please tell me what mode you are using for the presentation?
    Is that what this duplication mode (the same image on the LCD screen and the external device) or something else?
    Do you have problems if you use the single external device (LCD screen is OFF)?

    Movie files can be problematic if you run on laptops LCD and try to switch to the external display while the movie is running.

    I think that this problem occurs due to the problem of the motherboard and I imagine that there could be some electronic problem power if the AC isn't affected adapter.

  • USB air card causing kernel panic only when you run Merge 4.1.1

    I got from many kernal panics when Plug and unplug an aircard for Sprint USB 3 G / 4G Wireless U250 Sierra when I merge 4.1.1 also running on Lion 10.7.2. The card taken aircard inside and outside without any problem in Leo until I opened the merger and works very well. When I do I immediately get the kernel panics. It made me lose many files on the virtual machine since the last snapshot, I had was at the end of November 2011. The Genius Bar told me that it was caused by Fusion and contact VMware or Sierra Wireless for help. I would use the card aircard on Lion and Fusion, but if I have to I it will cut merge if I have to and if possible. I see the report appear in the parameters of Fusion as a USB connection just before it crashes. I have attached the last log of kernel panic I. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Angelsfan1, here's what you need to do:

    1. Install the SmartView 2.6
    2. Open Finder and go to system > Library > Extensions
    3. Copy the Beceem kext on your desktop and then trash the one installed in the Extensions Directory
    4. Right-click on the kext that you copied and "show the contents of the package.
    5. Open the file info.plist with TextEdit or another editor
    6. Carefully remove all the 28 entries following 2 lines:
    7. IOMatchCategory
    8. Save the file.
    9. Install updated to the kext.  For this you will need a free kext Installer.  I used Kext drop, but there are tons of free.
    10. The newly installed kext should now appear in the system > library > Extensions Directory.
    11. Reset
    12. SmartView open and connect!

    Thanks again for the tip and all the research done by your team of rachidoss!  And thank you for starting this thread Angelsfan1!

  • Vista OS does not load. I tried booting and the load screen bar continues to work without success. When you run the start he stops to c:\windows\system 32\cmd.exe that I don't want to lose my files so I have not reinstalled. Any suggestions?

    Vista OS does not load.  I tried booting and the load screen bar continues to work without success.  When you run the start he stops to c:\windows\system 32\cmd.exe that I don't want to lose my files so I have not reinstalled.  Any suggestions?

    Restore point:

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.



    If restore work not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use it.

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.


    Data recovery, if/before you reinstall:

    1. slave of your hard drive in another computer and read/save your data out there.

    2. put your Hard drive in a USB hard drive case, plug it into another computer and read/save from there.

    3 Alternatively, use Knoppix Live CD to recover data:


    Download/save the file Knoppix Live CD ISO above.


    Download the Vista software from the link above.

    After installing above ISO burning software, right click on the Knoppix ISO file > copy the Image to a CD.

    Knoppix is not installed on your PC; use only the resources of your PC, RAM, graphics etc.

    Change the boot order in YOUR computer/laptop to the CD/DVD Drive 1st in the boot order.

    Plug a Flash Drive/Memory Stick, BOOT with the Live CD, and you should be able to read the hard drive.

    When the desktop loads, you will see at least two drive hard icons on the desktop (one for your hard drive) and one for the USB key.

    Click on the icons of hard drive to open and to understand which drive is which.

    Click the icon for the USB drive and click on "Actions > Change the read/write mode" so you can write to disk (it is read-only by default for security reasons).

    Now to find the files you want to back up, just drag and drop them on the USB. When you're done, shut down the system and remove the USB key.

    See you soon.

    How is it that some machines running windows vista, when the router is updated or changed, they show "limited or local only" when you then reconnect wireless... nothing else was changed on those computers and other devices can connect ok?


    Each router is assigned to the specific address (called IP address or IP address). And each router maintains its own database (called as base of router) to follow the networking devices communicate with him. When the router is changed, the particular router is unable to detect the device, especially the network card to communicate with the computer.  Since he does not have details of the database of network devices, communicate with him.

  • Tecra S2 began to turn off the power when you run some heavy applications

    I have laptop Tecra S2 and (almost 3 years) had no problem so far.

    Recently, it started to turn off instantly when you run some heavy duty applications, such as games. He takes turns instantly and can work hours if it's just a spreadsheet or just Web broswing documents but when I start a game it takes 15-20 minutes.

    Once I started it even once, it takes less time to get the same result.

    My guess is overheating - any ideas how to fix?
    Or it may be something different?

    See you soon


    There is nothing to fix. The laptop needs to be cleaned. It must be done on the professional track. This means that the laptop must be disassembled as just at the moment when the cover is removed the cooling fan and the cooling rack can be cleaned properly.

    After having this laptop will work like new.
