# Foxhound :
Notebooks are (mostly) not made for being played on and as a result get too hot.

I am not saying you can not play games on a laptop but I just never advice it (I played years on a laptop....... I know )
Also, check the .rpt file to see if the errors in there tell you something.
Try to run just the default game (vanilla) and see if when using no custom content at all the game still crashes. If not one of the addons/mods you used might cause it.
thanx for the reply foxhound..
Yes vanilla CO does run smooth for me, but i have no HUD in ALL vehicles/planes/infantry ( e.g AV8-B = SPD,ALT,AMMO COUNT) all i have is fuel and just the cross hair reticle. In CO with mods i have the same problem, except i can see my SPD ALT etc only because i have the cockpit interface which vanilla doesnt have. OA runs fine no problems, bit laggy at times. I get a few no entrys in 'CO vanilla' and 'CO mods' which are all the same, on main, in editor and game. 4 in total which i have the names of..
..And yer i know about the laptop, It was what i needed at the time, I couldnt gat a comp :( .. But getting one soon.
I also have a question about that 2 and who better to ask.. What do you recommend I should build for ARMA 2/3 with about $2000 - $2500 to spend. I want to be able to run them at max and how it should be.
