It would be better to install a graphic card.
As most of the games recommended requirement is that you have installed a graphic card in your PC.
Also try some troubleshooting steps given here;
Stop un-necessary background running services
Update all drivers
Scan PC with an updated Anti-Virus
Also use game optimization softwares like PCFresher that will turn your computer to gaming mode.

SOURCE: intel graphics card
Unfortunately Intel drivers have some bugs in them which means it will not support Hardware T&L correctly. This means that intel graphics chips are not recommended for any new games and many old ones. Some Intel chipsets support more than others, unfortunately yours doesn't.
You can see here which chips support some parts of hardware Transform + Lighting here at http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-011910.htm
An entry level AMD/ATI radeon or Nvidia graphics chip would be more suited to occasional gaming on a laptop system.

SOURCE: really poor graphics
Make sure you have the latest driver updates for your graphics chipset.
Also, have you checked your task manager to see if your system resources are being strained. If so you may want to optimize your startup configuration to eliminate unnecessary programs running in the background.
I would check for the latest drivers first though.

That notebook does not have the capablity of swapping out the graphics chip set. I would recommend going HERE and make sure that you have the correct driver for your machine. There is an option that will allow HP to determine the correct driver for that card.
Aside from all that, there is a new option just coming out called "an external graphics adapter" Asus and Fujitsu are the only one I know of so far that have one, and it's quite pricey but, hey all new equipment is, and then it comes down in price.
Lastly you know you have an hdmi connector that if you wanted you can move the graphics from the laptop to your HD TV set for High Definition Gaming.
That's about all the options I can think of.
Don't forget to leave a rating.

Not much. The intel GMA4500M is not a very powerful graphics format. Most new games run directX 10 and some will only work with DirectX 10 compatible cards. The intel GMA4500M can run Direct X 10...but not very well. Most laptops are not geared for gaming due to high end graphics processors use a lot of energy and can really shorten a laptop battery run time. There are laptops with high end built-in graphics by Nvidia and ATI. These laptops can be very expensive and are very large. In your situation you cannot upgrade the graphics in the laptop and are stuck with what you have. Most new games you will need to run them in low res for the frame rate to be high and may need to de-activate some of the Direct X 10 functions to speed up game play.

Hi its all about what resolution you run it at if you laptop can run a game at its native resolution 1280 x1024 for example then you can run that game though your hdmi port or dvi port to any screen that will accept your resolution it wont give you any more power though
