    We need the model number and make of your laptop, as well as full system specs to help.
    Although I can say right now, your integrated graphics sucks.

    It may be that the installed video driver, is not the best one for it. Try checking the laptop manufacturer's website, find out what the current video driver for your machine is, then use "device Manager" to determine the revision of the driver that's now installed.
