decided i would give pkr ago as they have been sending me lots of emails, downloaded it loaded it up which quickly resulted in my laptop having a very long stroke and me in a hulk rage wanting to throw my laptop at the wall.....sometime later pky eventually closed and my laptop made a full recovery from it's stroke. anybody had this problem with pkr and got an idea how to avoid it or is it just my laptop not good enough??? as i would like to try out the software

If your laptop is old dont even bother. It will keep crashing your pc, and even if you manage to play it will need to be the only program running, either that or crash again. From what i have seen though they say that you can choose to disable the 3d graphics so that it requires less. Test it with the 3d disabled and if it continues just uninstall or buy a new laptop

It does sound like a PC issue, but I wouldn't know without knowing some things about your laptop. 1. How many GB does it have? 2. Is it a pentium plus processor? 3. MHz 4. This shouldn't matter, but what windows do you run XP, 7, etc.

Yeah we definitely need to see those specs. OS would be good to know to. I wouldn't expect a poker software to be too taxing for any laptop made within the last ten years but I guess PKR is more demanding then others with it's 3d right?
