    Hi, recently I downloaded Age of Conan. I started playing yesterday and the game was really choppy all the time and it made the game unplayable. I thought my laptop was just not good enough to run the game but I tried playing Oblivion and World of Warcraft and both seem to be just as choppy. This has never been a problem before and both of these games always ran fine. I tried offline games also and the same thing happens so its not my internet connection. I defraged and also updated drivers but neither worked. What can I do to fix this problem? Thanks

    My specs are:
    Toshiba P105-S9312 laptop

    Windows XP
    Processor: Intel CPU T2500 @ 2.00 GHz (2 CPU's)
    RAM: 2046 Mb
    Hard drive: 186 gig, 70 free
    Video Card: NVIDIA Geforce Go 7900 GS

    try to uninstall one of the games (easiest with the smallest, less work to do) , then reinstall. if it still lags and is acting weird I don't think I can help you..
    if it's fine then try it on one of the other games too:)
