    How old is this HP and when did the graphics issue start?

    tell the exact pat number of your laptop. if you're using the AMD platform, i'd like to recommend to sell it or change the unit to some other model of dv9xxx series(intel platform). nv6150go chip is very faulty chip.

    there's nothing to do, except sell this laptop and buy a new one with powerful videochip.

    90% of laptops use integrated graphics. they are not designed to play games. Motherboard RAM has nothing to do with your graphics capability.

    "Motherboard RAM has nothing to do with your graphics capability"...

    But more RAM can smooth out game play...

    A good defrag of the HD and disk clean up maybe in order.

    Also there maybe a setting in the bios where you can change the amount of ram available to you graphics card. I would also suggest looking up the games recommended or minimul specs to run the game.
