  1. As the advice so far, and... I only run Windows Defender - don't get 2 anti-virus programmes running at the same time - it can cause issues. If you do go the route of another anti-virus then turn off Windows Defender to stop them clashing. In regards to malwarebytes, it's fine to have - and i run one occassionally. In the meantime - all that happened was a Kernel Panic, some low level operation couldn't recover, as a precaution Windows shuts down. It's only a sign that an error occurred, and there's probably not something fundementally wrong. If it hap
  2. Technically this would run the game - but how well and at what expectations is always going to be ambiguous as per the opening post. https://www.box.co.uk/NX.VLFEK.009-Acer-Travelmate-P2-TMP214-52-NX.VLFEK.00_2892898.html You'll have to play ball (so to speak) and tell us what your budget is.
  3. It will work, how well is anyone's guess. If 200 is all you're spending then it is what it is.
  4. Click on the Detect Drivers on the page below https://www.dell.com/support/home/en-ie/product-support/product/inspiron-13-7380-laptop/drivers
  5. What computer did you buy? What is your computer/specs etc. Can you hit the Windows key and type in DXDIAG run that program, save the text file and post it here. Further to this - download Malwarebytes (the free version) and run a scan. Also try CCleaner. You can find tutorials online for both.
  6. Best to post here. https://community.sigames.com/forums/forum/263-football-manager-technical-help-and-bugs-forum/ in the relevant forum. However, have you updated your own hardware/software - any updates required on your system? What is your computer/specs etc. Can you hit the Windows key and type in DXDIAG run that program, save the text file and post it here. If you're on Mac go to the Apple Logo top left and go to About This Mac and take a screen shot of the specs.
  7. Processor is the I7-6700HQ Should still be ok. Graphics card is integrated and a season or two behind current models. But should be ok on low to mid range graphics settings.
  8. Doesn't surprise me. There will always be new tech in development. Apple get people into a trap of renewing their tech each year, "if you don't have the latest you're missing out" - and this is cohorted online by people who get the new tech and lambast others who didn't get it. It's a mean marketing game with Apple. I have a Galaxy S7 phone, and I got my wife the S20 (with an S21 to be reveiled in a week or two, so it's already nearly out of date). But I used the S20 and whereas, it's nice, and sleek, my phone does all the exact same functions - or at least all the funcitons i
  9. The RAM of 8gb or 16gb is going to make minimal difference - it just means you can have more apps open - in terms of performance for FM it will be minimum. The limitation of RAM of 16gb is what would stop me getting it - as I use high end design apps, and require 32gb of RAM at least. *edit plus the design apps I use haven't been optimised for the M1 architecture.
  10. The mac mini has more ram, but you will need a screen and keyboard mouse etc. Other than that, they are the same.
  11. AMD and Intel have new lines coming out - and with Apple you seem to only get the choice of the M1 processor. At least if I do Windows PC/Laptop I can choose the processor that suits me. But I guess this is where Apple is winning - it's not confusing, you the computer, it's the same performance regardless. With so many Windows laptop/pc makers - the choices are far too many and it's confusing for the customers. But on the other side, the choices are there for a lower price PC if you want to go that way. Being portable with a computer isn't always about having th
  12. Think you mean i7 9700k. And on the benchmarking threads the i7 9700k is outperforming the M1 processor https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12vp32qrHivL-_auW9D0pp-F7ZvrvQlqtBgfcSOL8n5I/edit#gid=1041602144
  13. Yeh but what spec is the Windows machine? How much did you pay for it?
  14. What graphics card have you got and is it up to date?
  15. Most modern processors in low to mid range processors would handle this quit quite easily, certainly s €999 laptop of most would handle quite easily.
  16. I don't understand this comment. What processor/ gpu have you got at the moment? What's wrong with it exactly?
  17. What make is hte computer? Type into google the make - and serial number. For example, I have a DELL. I type in exactly this ----- Dell Updates Serial Number The google result brings me to this page https://www.dell.com/support/home/en-uk Where I can type in the serial number (found underneath your laptop) and get any crucial updates. Mac Book Air with the M1 chip gets good reviews. Here's best I can find for £1000 https://www.box.co.uk/1L6F7EAABU-HP-Pavilion-Gaming-15-ec1009na_2958259.html
  18. As you say you are using added playerfaces and graphics - probably the reason for this. Take them out and see if it improves.
  19. This should be sufficient https://www.box.co.uk/AVITA-LIBER-NS14A8UKV542-MB-Avita-Liber-V-14_3355367.html
  20. It's very pricey for what it is - but it will work fine. Are you set on this? Why this one?
  21. I can imagine the price. And for that, I'd gladly pay cheaper for something of similar quality and be plugged in on the couch.
  22. Hit the Window key on the keyboard. And then type in DXDIAG and run the programme. Once it's finished hit Save All Information. It will save a text file. Then attach that to the forum.
  23. Should be fine. You can always reduce some settings if you need to - there's sometimes a balance you will have to find. Windows OS isn't restrictive. Windows 10 in S mode is a version of Windows 10 that's streamlined for security and performance, while providing a familiar Windows experience. To increase security, it allows only apps from the Microsoft Store, and requires Microsoft Edge for safe browsing. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-in-s-mode-faq-851057d6-1ee9-b9e5-c30b-93baebeebc85#:~:text=Windows 10 in S mode is a version of Windows,10 in S mod
