This thing has served me well over the years.
It's obviously underpowered by today's standards; but the 4 cores + HT + large turbo boost makes it really flexible, allowing it to do a great job whether what you are running is optimized for more or fewer cores.
It does run a little hot though.

My i7-840QM is a lot better than the 12% that is stated here over this i7-720QM, yet they're both rated at 7???; just look at my benchmarks: MINE BLOWS 8'S AWAY! :) Let's not be ostriches, with heads in the ground, cause this biting 840 ain't going away! :)

hey man, i had a laptop with this cpu, and it used to get soooo hot until i sprayed the vents with compressed air. if you've never done this, i suggest turning it all the way off, removing the battery (just to be safe), putting it upside down, and spraying compressed air from an air can into all the vents around the CPU exhaust. it worked wonders for me

Hi buddy,
I will try my best to help you. First tell me what is your GPU so I can add it since not running those games is probably due to your GPU and not the CPU. /P

Ah, but crashing might have nothing to do with hardware. Do you get an error or it just randomly crashes? I'm sure this is some kind of software (game) problem rather than hardware related.
As for the GPU, AMD has been known for these things. See the specs of your GPU and compare them to the mobile GPUs we have. That way you can find yours which isn't that one for sure as you have selected a desktop GPU. You need to look in the AMD laptop section.

@Mazarasrb what you gave me is a graphic driver but i also needed it coz i didn't have CCC .
i guess that my proplem can be solved as long I get new ram…
mine is 4GB ddr3
do you reccmend me to upgrade it to 8gb ?
p.s
my brother's laptop has intel core i3 2310M..and it can handle NAPOLEON TW even in 4 vs 4 armies battle + he also have 4 GB ddr3..so i think his ram can handle his CPU whilest mine can't right ??

RAM is not an issue here.It is tested to work with 4GB RAM, RAM cannot give symptoms that you have neither it can result in overheating. You installed the driver i gave you?
