    AFA playing games on that laptop.....again, it will not be good. It will be very poor at best. That laptop is set up just to surf, email, render basic videos. It just doesn't have the processing power or the rendering power to game at a level of any decent gaming needs.

    You might want to look into a basic game system for what kind of hardware is needed. You can look at for complete gaming rigs and then check what games you might like to play and check out the specs needed to play them. Then compare the gaming rig to the specs of game and go from there.

    Note: Depending on what SIM game you're getting you might be able to play it.

    Thank you.
    I looked at some gaming laptops. I'm a poor boy, having to live on $800 a month disability.

    No problem. If you decide to set aside some funds and want help picking out some hardware to build one or get one all ready built, I can help you with that. We can get one picked out for just about any budget.

    That is what you have there: "Intel® HD Graphics for Intel® Celeron® Processor N3000 Series" GPU is incorporated with processor.

    I did some research on your HP laptop and I totally agree with Plankton, as it is not really a gaming laptop that can play the latest gaming software with decent settings. Older software, well, yes, but you'll find out more when you receive your "surprise" gift. The Intel HD GPU is integrated into the motherboard and like I posted before, Speccy should tell you the version of your Intel HD GPU, either Intel HD Graphics 2000 or 3000, for example. You can then Google what games are supported/playable. Below is a snip of my system running Speccy:

    As you can see, it lists all the info you will need - processor speed, GPU, motherboard, avail RAM, etc. No need to open laptop (I don't recommend this)!

    Also, how did you hook up your external monitor up to your laptop? Is it compatible with HDMI? Did you cycle through the menu options on your monitor to select the desired input? I know when I first attached my monitor I got a blank screen but then in the monitor's menu I had to select "HDMI 2" to get a picture. Then I went into PC's settings and configured it to use an external display (Settings -> System -> Display).

    No external monitor. haven't tried hooking up the HDMI to see if it works after doing a clean install.
    I been using TV as external monitor for my ACER with Win 7, monitor works for a few seconds and goes out. when I hit the power button, monitor lights up with a red tint, when lock screen comes up, monitor goes black. it took some hard hits on the floor a bunch of times. busted casing around heat pipe. still works, just need external monitor.
