  1. Ok i thought that might be the problem when i was launching dota as a test , but thought opengl would surfice. i gues will have to settle for windows.
  2. Thanks for all your help I appreciate it. Seems like the optimisation just isnt quit their yet for something this old , or something like that. Thanks
  3. See thats the strange thing cause i made sure they used Opengl before the time so i would know it works. Let me try this and see what happens
  4. I have put Linux on here for my friend so that he is able to use this old laptop for his D&D games, when this laptop had windows on a few months ago it was able to play all the games i am talking about perfectly fine, thats why I am so confused here ?
  5. Ok so then there must be another problem dude cause any game that i launch it laggs with very low to almost no fps and with a 1 gig card it shouldnt be? especially when they are all very old games

  9. Hi their guys please let me know if there was already a topic like this. I am having a problem with Dell laptop I installed Linux Mint 20.1 on, It has AMD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 as far as i can see its a driver issue because when first installing the Linux from a boot I kept getting the black screen with flickering cursor. I was able to get past this by editing the the full boot grub command line using , 'nomodeset' and continuing this enabled me to install and setup, once i had done that i thought i would be able to get the drivers by installing AMD catalyst using sudo ap
  10. I haven't fully removed the Mobo from the chassis However the Capacitor by the Wifi card Slot is the same as well as the orange bar-code sticker so Im going to guess its the same board. IF it is so then what would be the upgrade choices?

I have the ability to Re solder etc etc My request was mostly to see if anyone had done it before and if so what would the possibility of bricking the board be. As it seems like it will be high I will leave it at just that.
