    Re: game running slow on my computer

    you would be best posting what your specs are (what kind of processor, what graphics card etc) so the techies here can help ya

    Just as a general thing: have you made sure your video card drivers are up to date? do you have lag with other games (internet) or websites, that sort of thing? What kind of internet connection do you have? some are simply slow

    Also there's a tech forum you can find from the forum list above that might help you if you want to give it a read as well

    Good luck!

    Or buy more physical RAM. I recommend http://www.crucial.com/ you can scan your computer to get the correct type of RAM.

    What he said - we can't help you without knowing more about your system specs.

    Best post the dxdiag info - see (see http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.php?18699-How-to-get-help-on-the-Tech-Forums-and-how-to-contact-Turbine) for a how-to

    Cheers

    This isn't going to make it any better ... you do realize what virtual ram is right? If you're running in within your swap file, expect the game to be slower than molasses.

    simplest solution.

    toss that old pc into the pile marked ancient junk. and get a new system.

    you can get brand new pre-built desktop PC's for $600 - $1000 that will run the game at decent resolution without problems.

    You aren't running a PCI video card by any chance are you?

    Re: game running slow on my computer

    I have the same problem, and I have already posted on this, so I won't be redundant. But I do have a question.

    Are you saying that upgrading (in my case) from 1GB RAM to 2GB RAM would not be helpful? 2GB is the most my laptop will support I think.
