    Battlefield 4 wont run proberly on my new gaming notebook.


    Hello internet users all around the world!

    I just bought a new computer, a ASUS G771JM, and my first impressions of it has been wonderful, its working silently and prestigeous on games such as WoW and Heroes Of Newerth. Though the computer is about 1200, Im expecting abit more than WoW and HoN since those games have never really been a problem for me, Ive always been able to run them even on my old crappy comp.

    I just bought battlefield 4 which I know is a pretty "good pc required" game, and according to Canyourunit.com Im lacking "dedicated video RAM" whereas I have 2gb, and recommended is 3gb. I started the game with medium graphics, the computer started working alot, up to about 80% cpu and eventually the game crashed after about 10 minutes of gameplay. I dont know how to feel but since its a "gaming laptop" and they promote it as "extreme gaming laptop for advanced experience" I feel that I should be able to run bf4 I know how corporations work their PR but still, its a solid computer and Im little bit worried that I may have made a wrong decision, computer wise. Im thankfull for any responses! Cheers. My specs: GeForce GTX860M 2GB

    Core i7-4710HQ

    8GB RAM

    128GB SSD

    Welcome to the forum!

    You are sure it is using the dedicated GTX860m during the game and not the Intel HD graphics? Check Nvidia Control Panel and be sure it is set to use the GTX for that game.

    That computer may also have a setting in BIOS to use the GTX (dedicated) graphics all the time if you want to.

    Thank you for your reply Popeye!

    I opened up Nvidia control panel but it seems like the only settings I can change is the "3D settings". I dont know if that is the correct tab for gaming usage or if Im just little bit stupid. Anyway Im thankful for your reply and I will probably work it out now, thanks!

    Yes, it is the 3D setting. There you can choose which GPU the game uses.
