    You laptop has the following video solution; "Mobile Intel GL960 Express Chipset with integrated 3D graphics, featuring Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 with up to 358 MB of Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology 4.0 (8 MB of dedicated system memory, up to 350 MB of shared system memory), supporting Microsoft DirectX 9 and DirectX 10." You need to go to Acer's support site to get the latest driver for your X3100 on board graphics, or to Intel's site to see if they have a newer one. Your new laptop will have a different driver requirement, so go to the manufacturers website for it's drivers.

    You have a Intel GPU, not a nVidia one. That is why.

    xD Yeah.

    Yeah, I guess you should keep it should you find one under your pillow, but don't waste actual money on that Dell garbage, for that price you can build a fast gaming PC and buy a tablet as well (if you insist on lugging a computer everywhere you go).

    Yup. Trash indeed. Get a Sager if you want a laptop.
