A friend of mine recommended this site to see if somebody could help me out with my issue.
Basically i'm having a lot of trouble playing games on a decent graphics setting (and decent framerate) with my current setup. I have a nvidia geforce GT 540M graphics card, and an integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics 3000). I have an i7-2670QM CPU (2.20 GHz), and 4 Gb RAM.
I'm playing stuff like Minecraft and I have to set everything as low as I can, and still end up with about 10 FPS. Similar issues with a number of other games etc. I know it isn't the highest spec card around, but I just feel like it should at least be running these fine. The laptop was built by PcSpecialist.
Hope you guys can help.
