Hi

 

What do you actually want ? . If you feel your current graphic card is under powered, there is nothing to do other than replacing the card with a new one.

If you haven't overclocked your video card, that is one option you can try and see if you can get better performance out of it. If you currently have the graphics card overclocked and are still needing a new card, then let us know what you're looking for, and we can help you out, and get you put in the right section as well.

Overclocking a laptop video card is very risky as the confined space will generate more heat from the vid card that honestly the cooling can support. I don't know if the drivers for mobile video cards allow you to overclock or not. Something for you to look at is called Rivatuner. It will allow you to overclock the card if it's supported.

 

Here is a video for you to watch that will give you a general idea.

 

 

Rivatuner Download:

It's mainly for Nvidia based chipsets, and I don't know if it'll work with Ati mobility cards, but you can see.

Hi

 

Never try over clocking laptop graphics. They are not designed to play games (except the gaming series laptop) and hence they don't have adequate cooling system. If you managed to overclock the card, you will ended up in damaging the chip.

Hi

 

Try to play the games in lower settings. Disable AA, vertical sync, lower texture quality and low the resolution.

Hi

 

We already answered why it lags in post http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/494303/dota-2-lag/

 

Unlike Desktops, laptop chips are integrated to the mother board and it is not upgradable. If you seriously consider gaming, i suggest buying a PC. Not a 2500$ monster machine but a budget gaming PC like the one in the below link.

This is enough to play any modern high end game in 1440 x 900 resolution in full settings with medium AA.

I'm afraid not.

 

The specs you've posted aren't remotely close to the kind of specs you would need to play the latest games at decent settings. The CPU and RAM are OK. However, the Intel HD Graphics is a very basic onboard graphics solution and is only good for general usage, videos, movies and old games.

 

Additionally:

- You cannot upgrade your graphics

- Overclocking your onboard graphics is risky and not recommended

 

You will just need to play games that aren't too graphics-intensive and/or try lowering the game's visual settings to make it playable.

 

Alternatively, you can save up and buy a new gaming-oriented laptop or build a gaming desktop PC for much lesser.

 

Hope this helps.
