i know. that was referring to the integrated gpu taking preference over discrete card comment.
I'm confused. How would I use anything but the onboard card on a laptop? I can't install another card, that's not how it works...
ok there are two ways a computer uses graphics. Remember, next to the processor the motherboard is everything. First is integrated graphics, which is built into the motherboard. The second is a video card on the expansion slot. Now days integrated graphics are good. You will almost always choose and, or GeForce for graphics cards, but only if you choose this option when you buy the computer. A few ideas about your delima. First see if you have a full screen option on every game you are trying. If that doesn't work you can try changing the resolution on each game. If that doesn't work try the program forfrunning old games on Windows option. You will probably have to Google thist unless some one else chimes in. It's been to long since I've done it to remember how. One time I had to lower my graphics memorey to play freelancer on my calendar omputer. To good of graphics for the game in bios.
If you Chuck the laptop can I have it.
I think you only have integrated graphics.
