Hi guys. When in driver mode, my trainz game stutters. the train will be going 30mph and first its at a crossing , wait 3 seconds and its already gone to another spot. Also , its slow. I will click at point A and it will say Railroad simulator not responding for a minute, and then back to the spot i wanted to go to. Anyone with advice?

Computer Specs not Computer Operating System. http://trainz.shaneturner.co.uk/tutorials/index.php?page=system-info-utility Download the current version and copy-paste it here. If you can't do that, throw a brick through your computer and get yourself a room in a mental asylum.

If you have wndows 7 - click on the start button, in the box at the bottom type dxdiag and run the program - it will give all the info required. Once you have that file copy and paste in here so folk can see what they need.

A note regarding dxdiag - in most cases the information provided can be highly technical and may not fit on a single post (especially if using the Save all Information button).

A quick check on HPs website and I found this:

From what I can tell, these are the equivalent of desktop-sized laptops. They have mobile graphics chips, mostly Intel Integrated, except for a couple of models with NVIdia 610Ms, and mobile-versions of the CPUs. This might explain his performance issues.
