SL keeps freezing when I log in

Recommended Posts

I've just tried to log in to SL and found that as soon as I do, within seconds everything freezes.  This happened twice so far in two different locations.  I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing problems with SL?

Thanks in advance,

Milla

Maybe your graphics are set to high, try reducing graphics settings.

PS try logging in to location "Suduffco", that is a pretty empty water sim between Heterocea and Sansara...

Draw distance, number of max particles, max avatar complexity, number of non imposter avatars, LOD-factor sliders,.. all of them but mostly those...

It would also help if you could give us your computer specs, such as graphics card, RAM etc for us to see how powerful (or not) your machine is. Perhaps your graphic settings in world are set too high for your graphics card to handle.

Also, using a wireless connection for SL has been known to cause issues, it's always best to direct connect your modem to your comp/laptop for SL.

I have a Dell Inspiron1700 (5759) 64 bit windows 10, CPU Intel Core TM 176500 CPU @ 2.50 GHZ, memory 1600 GB. There is no good place to find all those specs so, here is what gathered:

Graphics card: Intel (R) HD Graphics 520 - Video card chip type Intel (R) HD Graphics family .

Is this all you need or is there more I can provide to help decipher what I may need or be lacking to solve my issues with SL?

Thanks for all your help,

Milla

I don't know much about graphics cards but that sure looks like a onboard graphcs chip me. If you run SL on a desktop PC you can get cheap  GPUS beginning at 30 bucks which will improve your LS experience (just don't expect the cheap cards to allow you to run it on "ultra" settings ;))

Yeah, it is "an integrated graphics unit, which can be found in various ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) processors of the Skylake generation". 

Set all of your graphics to super low and then you can play around with what things you can increase a bit without causing a freeze-up.  Definitely don't expect too much from it.
