Windows 7: Intel Video Card?Driver? Strange Problem

That is correct, what you could do is.. buy a can of compressed air and gently remove the dust with the air, also a vacuum to extract the dust from the fan, that's if you don't want to open your laptop, if you do open it.. then you could clean it deeply.. but don't do it if you don't have enough experience... that's my recommendation..

Better safe than sorry

Hi guys! I back.

But I'm not happy, because I just bought a can of compressed air. I opened my laptop, took out a heatsink and noticed that my processor is ???FUSED??? A top of it was fused and i was really scared of this. Then, I removed the dust from my heatsink and replaced everything. I turned my PC on and tried to test the game. Damn, I saw the same spots and I don't know what to do...

AND... When I play Crysis, I only can play it on Low settings, but it shows that i can play on Medium settings.

Seeing as you cleaned it and it is still doing it, I would give serious consideration into a warranty claim on it (RMA).

Not sure where you got that idea from as there isn't an Intel graphics solution made yet that can play Crysis at much more than low. This is how the one in your fairs with a wide range of games,

Okay, here's the picture of my laptop (sorry for a crap quality)

I just took out a heatsink to clean it (dusted grills) and then i saw a fused CPU (in the centre of picture).

--------------------------------------


When I click to do optimal settings, game automatically sets all graphics settings (water quality, texture quality, particle quality, game effects quality, etc.) to medium, but I always get lags on medium settings, so I set everything to low (just leave "physics quality" to be set to Very High).

sounds as if you have overheated your laptop and that can harm the cpu/gpu combo. Not much you can do once it has been damaged.

So, I'll need to buy a new CPU?
I didn't see any fuse/crash of the graphics card (i think it's next to my CPU on the right).

Of course, thanks for everybody, for trying to help...

If you actually removed the heatsink, did you remember to apply new thermal paste to it?

P.S. There is no video card in that laptop, it is actually integrated into the CPU.

Hi again.

Ok, i just bought a thermal paste called "Titan Nano Grease". I opened my PC today, cleant the old thermal paste (that was stangnant). Well, my CPU isn't fused like I saw. So, I added new thermal paste to my CPU/GPU.

Then, I turned my PC on, first what I did, is to open "SpeedFan". The temp was jumping around 36 - 40 celsius. So, then I turned on the crappy graphics game to see if everything was success. Well, there was a little bit smaller of that dots and CPU temp max was 60.

Well, I tried to play Crysis on Medium settings in 800x600 fullscreen into "Physis" map (Physis). It worked better too, but not enough. When I tried to play in "Islands" level (the first campaign level), i was reaching around 70 celsius... :/

And i have some questions?

1. Did I insert enough thermal paste?
2. When I inserted thermal paste, I put the heatsink in it's position, but I forgot to put the fan under it, so I put off the heatsink, inserted the fan into correct position and constructed the heatsink back again. Is that good that thermal paste was smoothed by the heatsink, heatsink was removed and then inserted back again?
