Okay this site is a really good place to ask tech question as people are very friendly and some of you seem to know a lot. Still there are those of us who are complete morons and only know the very basic about drivers or how our Bluray players work and that has led to a lot of threads that ask tech related questions popping up in this section.
I decided to start an all purpose tech questions and answers thread, so if you have a question about your tech or maybe you have found a fix for something post it here.
I 'll start with a question.
Hey I have a PC that has a Geforce GT 610 with the latest drivers and it works great for pretty much everything except two games and those are the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 3. Strangely enough it has no problems with Mass Effect 2.
The problem with Mass Effect is that some times, characters will disappear, the game will lock up and crash my whole system, sometimes my characters will be nothing but big black shadows(How ever this problem seems to fix it's self whenever I start a new mission), early on in the game when you are looking at the Citedal and talking about how big it is the game will crash in mid conversation, and worst of all on missions where Theaser Mawls attack the Mako the Mawls will always be invisible.
On Mass Effect 3 the problem is that some times characters will vanish and it will sometimes not let me hit buttons so I can interact with objects or talk to people that I need to in order to continue the mission. I will be standing right beside them and it will just not show the object or person as having the option to interact with it.
I have checked out everything else on my computer and it seems to be fine, the games have the latest patches and I have all the latest drivers. It seems to be a problem with the graphics card. I don't know if it is the drivers or what but something is screwy here and I have never had any problems with either of these games on my old computers.
If anyone here has come across this problem before and knows how to fix it I would be grateful if you would tell me how you did it.
Thank you for your time.
Oh and if windows 7 is running slow for you check out this video I made, it fixed the problem for me.
Do you want to mod your Mass Effect saves on the 360? Here is how you do that.
Hope this helps someone:)
