    high memory useage in game

    The game is Americas Army and memory usage goes up to 98 percent while in game. It is an issue because it is what I believe is causing the USB to lag out during the game and the character to either not shoot or keep running after I let go of the keys. what are your thoughts

    I quit using edge and went back to regular explorer. Edge is a nice concept but still needs work especially on lower end machines.

    I present to you the meaning of lag.

    worst latency I have had was on satalite and it was 1000ms so one second was fun to shoot at wall and hope an enemy ran into bullet.

    laptop cant connect or stay connected to internet

    The antenna connects to a card plugged into the mother board. disabling and enabling the wireless will reset the drivers if it happens to be a driver issue. I assumed a bad on me I know that you would automatically try this when you actually got your hands on the computer.

    laptop cant connect or stay connected to internet

    The wireless card in the laptop has a built in antenna. If it can keep connection when close to the wireless access point then I would suspect the antenna. If this is the case an after market card or usb wireless adapter should fix it. I have taken a few laptops apart and I don't recommend some...

    Fake hacks get cheaters banned

    The problem is banning a player does nothing if they can come back in as little as two minutes with a new account and kill the fun of every one else. It does not matter what type of game it is the same. I still play ffp mostly and currently play Americas army but used to play MW4 mercs and have...
