Question

internet connection issues

love this laptop, except I have problems with internet connection constantly dropping. This happens in both my houses, so I know it's the PC not my routers or ISP providers (also my last Win 7 Vaio had no problems). Definitely a laptop or Win 8 problem but can't find help to diagnose. Connection drops, then reestablishes within 1-2 minutes. it's often and chronic. Any suggestions would be a help. I've had the laptop 3 weeks.

answer 2
I had a problem with wifi and had to download an older driver as the newer driver causes issues. The driver currently or most up to date driver has issues with lots of different wifi setups but this is the only fix I have found so far and easiest. You need to download an older driver and install the older driver instead of using the newer driver. To get the driver follow the link I provided. This is a Qualcomm Atheros website for drivers - http://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wireless-download.php?chipset=61&system=5 Look for the driver: 9.2.0.474 and download and use this driver instead of the driver installed. To install this driver go to Control Panel, Device Manager, Network Adapters, right click on the wifi card and select Properties. Under the Driver tab select Update Driver Software and select the driver you just downloaded. Now this will or should fix the issue as it fixed mine but if at any point you have an issue just check the current driver by going to Control Panel, Device Manager, Network Adapters and right click on the Wifi card and select Properties and click the Driver tab. This will give you the driver it's using. If it shows anything but 9.2.0.474 than the computer has automatically updated. If this happens all you need to do is select Rollback Driver in the Driver tab and a wait a minute. I have this issue every now and then with the computer updating the driver but it's as simple as selecting rollback driver. Hope this helps. Thanks

When I went to buy this laptop I could only find the laptop in two stores which were about an hour drive. So I ordered mine online although I could have got mine quicker if I would have just drove the hour away to the two other Best Buy locations. My local Best Buy did not have them in stock but now they have them in stock. I think at first not all stores had them and they were here and there but now they seem to be becoming more available. You can take the model number and call each of your local Best Buy stores and see if any have them in stock.

This is the case with a lot of stores sometimes and shipping dept.'s because it's a post box and not being physically delivered to you. But you could probably speck to someone on your base about getting the laptop delivered to someone in charge.

Yes you can run Sims 3 just fine on this. You can see Sims 3 running on a computer similar to this laptop (but the one used in the video is slower, an intel i3 this is an i7) here:

I ran StarCraft II on this laptop and it ran very good. I also tried running it at Ultra graphics and it ran it pretty decent offline. I haven't tried it online yet but what i noticed offline was that it did lag just a bit when the screen got cluttered with a lot of characters but this was a ultra graphics setting so I'm pretty sure it will be able to handle games maybe at a medium to high setting perfectly. I would recommend this laptop as it isn't really thick so the graphics are really great for its size.

The computer is shipped with Intel HD Graphics 4000 that supports many of the latest games. However, you need to check the game specification to confirm the system requirements including the video card requirement of the game.
