so i bought my acer 5535 aspire last year and it has been okay for world of warcraft...not fantastically amazing but certainly not terrible...but the last few days i can't run WoW at all, everytime i log on i get disconnected, or if i actually get to play at all my latency goes sky high and i either can't do anything but stand still (i press a button to perform an action and nothing happens, i just stand around waiting for the action to occur) or i get disconnected from high latency. i have no idea what to do, i am not running any addons, nothing in the background (no internet browsing or any programs) and i even got this 'game booster' program to turn off unnecessary background programs....and it's worse than ever. it has never been like this before and i have no clue how to fix it!


any ideas???

There are 2 issues you sound like you might be having here.

Firstly, from a hardware perspective, when you log into the game, you have to load everything around you. If you logged out in a place with a high number of objects such as dalaran you will have to load a lot of stuff. If your graphics card can't draw everything in a certain amount of time it gives up and disconnects you. Which is why people D/C in onyxia a lot. (so far as I understand it)

If however you have been playing a long while unless there has been a patch between when your computer was working and wasn't working it seems unlikely this is the problem.


Latency on the other hand is purely based on your internet connection. Have you tried connecting via a different internet connection or a wired connection.

There is also server lag of course but I don't think that would be causing this.

i bought...http://www.amazon.co.uk/Netgear-Prosafe-Ethernet-Unmanaged-Switch/dp/B00009015U/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1268666697&sr=1-3 that and 2 cables (one for me, one for my boyfriend's computer) as his computer is wired and mine is wireless. hopefully this will solve the problem.

the problem isn't standing around in dalaran (though it's always annoying) it's in raids and 5 mans and even though EVERY gfx setting is on the minimum i'm suddenly unable to cast, play or stay connected. it's really weird and kind of occurred out of nowhere!

Have you tried the repair utility?
You can find it going to Start > All Programs(XP) > World of Warcraft > World of Warcraft Repair.
Click on the top first button, it must say something like "Reset and check files"
This has worked on some PCs on which I installed WoW, if this does not works you might try to update your gfx drivers.
