    I would advise you to update all your chipset graphics drivers.

    GM Express Chipset are not superb graphic card as they are internal one. Updating drivers won't make a great diffrence. The best to do with it will be to buy a graphic card and put inside.

    We're talking about CS 1.6. Shouldn't really require a heavy duty GPU.

    Yes it shouldn't but GM 965 are not to extra graphic card even on the 3 series I got some problem sometimes. Mainly when playing in mass number of bots.

    As I say you need to change the graphic card. Internal ones are not superb buy a new one and you will be able to play a lot of games smoothly

    Thats why I always advise friends and whoever want my opinion to buy a notebook with a dedicated graphics solution even the most pathetic of such are better than intel.
