I have a problem running Dirt3. The game runs and freeze's all the time

I'v already updated , video drives , realtek hd audio , Bios , directX and reinstalled the game.


Im Running Crysis2 and COD Black Ops very well ( 1080p 2xMsaa high settings with no problem ) Just Dirt3 give this problem.

PS > Same Dirt3 that runs on my Alienware M15x ( GTX460 1.5gb )

Any Ideas :confused:

Update the firmware for the Momentus XT drives you have to SD25.


You should also update your Intel INF + SATA RST drivers if you haven't already. Run "infinst_autol.exe -overall" from a Command Line instead of just double-clicking, so it will force update everything.

allready dit that. ( Momentus XT FW update ) + Intel INF + SATA RST drivers

It could also mean that the game needs patches / updated video drivers to run properly. Since I don't have Dirt3 here, it's hard for me to troubleshoot. :)

Problem allmost Fixed.

I'v just Removed those 2 Seagate Momentus XT from the Notebook. Taked a simple 80gb hard drive and installed a new S.O. + Video Drive then tested Dirt3.

The game worked without problems. Then i'v installed all the Asus APPs. And Run again

Worked just fine.

So i guess that Momentus XT maybe doesn't work very well with Dirt3

You have updated your video drives ? Make sure to have the last ones.

Ok now i found out why gta4 is lagging, from notebookreviews forums, the g73sw has problems with throttling the cpu and here is the fix http://www.techinferno.com/downloads/?did=1 . now it doesnt lag when i have low video settings.

Here is the official Seagate Momentus XT SD26 firmware update. SD26 is the latest version of the drive's firmware as of the end of August, 2011. If you search around, you will easily see that new Momentus XT drives are shipping with this version of the firmware, but Seagate isn't making it easy to attain this firmware.
