Not by choice, simply because the stupid-arse computer I have is currently on permanent spaz-attack whenever I try and play. I get no higher than 10 fps, usually it stays around 1 or 2, and it's really pissing me off!

I've defragged it, I've checked spyware and viruses and all is as it should be. Fekkin' thing is just refusing to behave!

QQ!

Sorry, couldn't resist.
So you're re-installing the whole shit? Goodluck.

I don't see what re-installing will do. It's nothing to do with that. It's the shitty graphics of my laptop that just can't keep up with it like it has in the past.

Anyone fancy donating 500 or so quid to the "Phil wants a new computer so he can play WoW" fund then let me know!

Tried latest gfx drivers for your card?

Full win reinstall might also help if you ain't done it for a while, you'd be suprised at all the shit that manages to sneak into your OS slowing it down.

Failing that I recommend a full clean of your PC, using a bucket of soapy water and sponge. Wink

I had a full rebuild last Christmas so the OS should be working fine.

I know nothing about getting drivers unless they come from the Windows Update stuff.

I don't get people that spend shitloads on an entire computer when it's only one part that doesn't work well.

Buy a new GPU. That way you only need about a fifth of what you think you do now.

Currently lack money for anything other than the essentials. Still, hoping to get back to Uni to finish my youth work training so I might get a new one for free (the wonders of dyslexia!) but failing that I'll just have to wait for money to fall into my lap.

If you have a rather old computer it is the perfect excuse when something goes down

I've been there Gurf and i know the pain. Here are some tricks i used back in the day:

Fist of all find out wich manufacturer your graphic card is, simply check in the graphic definitions, it will most likely be Nvidia or ATI. Then go to the manufacturere's website and download the latest driver for your card. Install is as simple as double clicking the icon.

Omega drivers are also a good choice for low machines. Same as before, determine what your graphic card model and manufacturer is, then visit www.omegadrivers.net to get them.

There are also tons of software maintenance utilites, i recommend TuneUp Utilities, keeps the OS fast and clean.

As for wow itself, there are some addons that might improve your framerates, i'd recommend WoWLoader, Leatrix GFX or Dynamic Performance. Any of these are easily found in WoWInterface or Curse.

Good luck!
