Windows 7: Laptop with HDMI port that will not play HD video??

The best I can find is you might have to turn down the video quality settings.....Yeah....I know what your gonna say....maybe a long, long, long, cable

The only reviews I can find on the Intel graphic's chip set are for gaming and its bad.....very bad....and they used a dual core CPU.

I can't speak with first hand knowledge, but on some forums the Intel chip is compared to Nivida's generations back....

Found this

They sold you a office system.....

From the link that Ivan the SoSo has provided, I also understand that there is another version 4500 HD which is HD capable. But the technical specifications of HP G60-513NR in the HP website itself states only 4500. In the event that the actual chip on your lappy is only 4500 and not 4500 HD, you may be rest assured that your lappie is not HD capable.

Well, as Ivan stated it may be a good office system. As I had already indicated the lappie had 4.26/5 rating and it may be from the less demanding users - not gamers or video enthusiasts.

Talk about a let down!! LOL. Buyer beware! Ivan the soso you mentioned turning down the quality? How would you suggest to do that? I do not see an option to do that in any of the media players I have. I am not pleased witht hat option, but it seems that it may be the only one that I have. Guess it is time to start another build! I am cool with that, but I am sure my wife is not! I am thinking small footprint. Powerful enough to play HD movies and do occasional web surfing. Something I can link to my good pc and grab all the media I need. Any suggestions? I am going to have to go as inexspensive as I can. No need for fancy bells and whistles. Strictly a HD movie playing machine.

I do have a PS3. I have heard of guys using that to play HD videos. But you see alot of small format movies when browsing those sites people use for movies trading. Is that because the PS3 will not handle a fullon 1080p .mkv, .mp4, or .m2ts? I know very little of the PS3 other that playing games. This may be a viable option? (Do not think my little bro will be to happy I commandeered his game system....LMAO!!

Best that I understand about it, its basically changing the screen resolution.... ie my native resolution is 1680X1050 so I would change that to 1440X900, 1280X800, or 800X600

Now I buy power is running a special (nothing really special about it) I used their configurator and lowered it to $437, $507 with windows but the site is fun to play withiBUYPOWER Computer :: Memorial Day M Special

The best if not cheapest option that I can think of would be to take your existing small form...put the weak card in(it did play movies?) Take good card (5770) a cheap tower from a local computer store, and build a budget AMD machine or even use a I buy power base.....Also check out Wal-mart on occasion they will steeply discount their desktop systems....The Wife is using a $399 E-machine no slouch out of the box, but with a good PSU(fit right in) and a 4830 card....not bad....not bad at all....and it came with Windows 7.....

I know nothing about PS3 short of the hacking scandal......

Can you post two screenshots of your processes.....while video is not playing and playing.
Click on the memory tab one or two times to show the highest to lowest.

At least we can see what is using up so much of the CPU.
