Windows 7: Game Booster

ultimate 64 sp1

has the netbook only got one gig of ram?

what gfx chip has the machine got?

i used to have an nvidia ion chip in mine, and it could play source games like half-life 2 fine on low quality settings, but then again i did upgrade it to 3 gigs of ram (and perhaps surprisingly played quite a bit better in xp, so i kept a dual-boot config).

the trackpad wasn't great for fps gaming though.

I found GameBooster very handy, in fact, especially because, once I set it up and tweak it a bit, it stops all the services I don't need during gaming but are too troublesome for me to turn off manually. When running some games that require a lot better specs than mine, those disabled services seemed to do the trick.

This may not actually give you better game performance, but it can, however, have an impact on the games' stability.

Portal 2 repeatedly crashed to the desktop for me until I dragged the .exe into GameBooster; same thing happened with Sims 3 Medieval. I couldn't actually have better performance, but they were a lot more stable.

If you're unsure about using it, just try it, it's free and doesn't really pose any threat if you install :)

Not sure what games you're looking to play on that netbook, but for the most part if it is anything much beyond Solitaire then I would forget about it. You can see how well it doesn't perform here,
