It has graphics switching capabilities sadly you can barely notice the difference between the two cards, other than power consumption.

Nvidia GeForce 310M GPU 1GB
Intel Integrated something or other.

I can run some applications fine
StarCraft II for example

Then I play small non graphic intense games like
i run at about 4-7fps

My computer has been in for service and had a motherboard change.
I suspect the Harddrive is dying or at least not at peek performance.

I am not sure where to start so basically can I make this hunk play games or is it due for the trash. If it does work I know it will be on low settings I just want to know how?

Have you checked Asus's website to make sure you have the latest drivers installed on your laptop? Minecraft is based in Java, do you have the latest version of Java installed? Magika is .net framework based so you should also make sure you have the latest .net framwork installed as well.

Yeah I have done all that.


I at one point played with the Nvidia advanced settings and got minecraft running at 100+ frames but I have no idea what I changed and since I haven't run any game over 10fps. I did have Star Craft running at decent fps now its around 10 aswell.
