Windows 7: Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset

What this means is that Intel wont let you update the driver! If you uninstall and boot straight to safemode on the reboot and install the downloaded drivers then. Ive got a packard bell and had the exact same issue but did that and worked fine! The trick is to not let the drivers install automatically!!! Dont worry bout the others as one is up to date and the other isnt intel i would assume!

You may want to load safemode with networking to D/L the drivers.

Lenovo thinkpads have had a switchable graphics option with both integrated and pci ATI GPUs for at least a year and a half. In vista and xp all that was required to change the active GPU was right clicking on the power manager app from lenovo and selecting discreet or integrated graphics. There hasn't been an update for windows 7 for my laptop yet that compares, so I have to decide at startup which option to choose by changing the graphics settings in bios.

Installing the graphics drivers when I installed 7 was not exactly easy, but I can't see how solving the OPs problem would be any different than the process I used to get both working on my laptop, when the manufacturer hasn't released a windows 7 driver yet.. To get them both working you have to first install the driver for the gpu that's active, then restart, go into the bios settings, change the graphics option, then install the other driver. I could probably solve the OPs problem in less than a half hour in person.. but I'm not so good at trying to write down the process.

I'm not familiar with the model listed in your specs, but if there are two graphics gpus in your laptop, there should be an option in the system configuration menu of BIOS to choose which one is active by default and both should also be listed in the system information in BIOS. HPs website is disorganized at best so, I haven't had any luck finding a service manual that describes a laptop with two GPUs under the model number you have listed in your specs. What is the model # as listed on the bottom of your laptop.. that number is specific to your build.

As for gaming issues, you won't get better performance in games with the integrated chip.

It's listed as this : Model #: dv5-1135ee
About gaming issues: After running the games for 10-15 mins, the game starts to freeze like every second for a few mins then they may run normally or just crash.

Here is a list of hardware in your laptop according to HP's website.


you don't have the integrated graphics chip. Games freezing up after 10-15 minutes of play sounds more likely to be a heat issue.. your graphics card or CPU overheating. Have you tried cleaning any dust that may have accumulated around the cooling fan intake? A little compressed air in the right place has solved more of this kind of problem than I can count.

If that's not the case, and having tested the memory and other issues, I'd look at the HDD as possibly being defective or starting to wear out. try running a disk check with the option to scan for bad sectors checked.

Here are my temps (after long usage) :

So i think it's not the heat causing this issue. I also ran the chkdsk
and didn't repot any problems.
This problem showed up immediately after installing windows 7, i didn't use to have such a problem with vista.

Is that after running the game with the temp monitor on until you get the freeze? Also, I would double check with a different monitoring app, ie CPUID HW monitor just to make sure the app is reading the sensors correctly, while running a benchmark that will stress the system (FurMark is a good freeware app). You can end the freeze by pressing windows+d and closing the game from the system tray with a right click once you get the error. Everything about this screams overheating.

Well i figured out what caused most of my games to freeze, it's the xp mode. Running Silkraod online in xp service pack 3 mode just caused it to be unplayable. However, running Silkraod online normally caused a new issue. When i click, a white blank screen appears for like 0.1 second and the game crashes all of a sudden at any minute just leaving a dialog that disappears so fast that i can't read a word on it. Hope someone can help cause i love gaming.
