Core i3 540 GMA problem

  1. Hi, I really need help!
    I've just bought a new build:
    Intel Core i3 540 3.06GHz
    Asrock H55M-LE
    2GB-DDR3 1333MHz
    Samsung 1TB 7200RPM 32MB

    I've installed Win7 Ultimate 32bit and updated all my drivers with hardly any background processes running.
    Everything works great except that it slows down a lot when I try to run any 3D app!
    Even Chess titans played at about 2fps. I even formatted the hdd and installed WinXP but I get the same problem.
    I thought maybe it's a driver problem or theres a setting on the bios or switch on the mobo that enables GMA performance. I wouldn't know because I'm new to LGA1156 stuff. I even struggled locking the cpu on the mobo!
    When I popped in my HD5570, It gives me the expected performance so I know it's a GMA problem.

    So can anyone please help me? Need help urgently. Thanks :)
