    Hi.

    I have an Ati mobility Radeon 200 on my laptop.
    As far as I know, I can't overclock it with atitools or rivatuner.

    My problem is that Facebook's flash games like bejeweled blitz or Bubble Island run extremely slow.
    Especially if I use other explorer than IE, which I hate.
    Even using complements like FlashResizer, Firefox just can't run those games smoothly.

    How can I make it run faster?
    Should I look forward special drivers like omegadrivers?
    Software like Powerstrip?
    Or I just can configure atitools settings?

    Second question is that I'm not sure if what I need is to speed up 3d, plain 2d or what.
    Thanks.

    It could just be the PC being clogged up. I still have my laptop with my 200m in it, and while I don't use facebook games it still runs well enough on other flash media.

    If you havn't re-installed windows on it ever it would likely speed things up if you can.

    Another option is to run CCleaner from here (top right corner). It won't make it like new or anything, but you might be surprised as to how much it cleans out.

    I've been using omega drivers on my 200m for 5 years now, I didn't notice much, if any, improvements, but they didn't hurt for sure.

    I just reinstalled windows XP from zero.
    Windows works faster but flash games run as slow as ever.

    I guess one problem I have is memory, as my crapy Compaq nx6125 uses ddr1
    I have 256mb pc2700 166mhz on dimm 1 and 1gb pc3200 200mhz on dimm 2.
    There's no other way I could make it work as those ddr1 are rare, non standard and expensive.

    Anyway, only I need is lower the graphics quality to run faster, but I don't know how to tweak that.

    Help?
