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

Hello there.

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.

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.

Hi youblazer,

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.

Good Luck!

Don't forget to leave a rating.


Thanks

Mark

SOURCE: i have compaq cq60 209TU laptop. It has intel Pentium Dual Core M

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.

How can I change the resolution from 1280 x 800? This is the highest possible according to the display setttings. I have removed the generic pNp monitor. I am running Vista Business. The display adapter is...


Graphics Unable to use the native resolution, such as 1920x1080, 1680x1050 and 1440x900 circuit388.gif Symptom(s):
On some displays, users may be unable to use the native resolution when using Intel® chipset graphics. Resolutions such as 1920x1080, 1680x1050, and 1440x900 are not available in graphics properties.

Cause:
The display's EDID is not read properly when connected to some digital flat panel displays. Display devices describe its capabilities by sending EDID (Extended Display Information Data) to the computer.

Solution:
Intel has released a graphics driver to specifically address this issue; however, there may be side effects to this solution such as longer than normal resume times from standby. This solution will only work with external displays such as DFP displays connected to the computer's VGA port. This driver is not designed to address issues with a notebook's built-in display (Local Flat Panel) or with TV’s connected to the system. This driver is provided as is. Intel has not tested, and does not guarantee, the operation of the driver for this purpose.

Check the requirements printed at the back of each game. this will tell you if the game runs. If some game is slow try disabling the antivirus while you run the game, remember to restart antivirus afterward.
Do not use software accelerator, majority of them are useless, some of them carries malaware and viruses.
