  1. Hey, I have a Pavilion DV5 laptop with a Intel HD graphics card.
    I play MineCraft Mainly, and it is about 10 FPS on a good day..
    Is there any tips I can use?
    THINGS I HAVE TRIED:
    (For minecrafters, I have tried optifine)
    I have tried going into properties and setting to program to high priority,
    I have tried clearing my cache
    And I have tried gameboost or whatever, that makes games faster.
    =================================================
    Would really help if I could get some answers! :)

    Intel HD graphics means you don't have a graphics card. It uses the CPU.

    Pretty much, either buy a card, or turn the game settings way down. It's actually pretty demanding.

    That's weird, because I played Minecraft with FPS above 25 (was fluid, never checked) on my Dell Latitude E5500 which has a GMA 4500 MHD integrated Intel adapter. St1ckM4n it's a laptop, he can't just buy a new card, it's not that simple.

    Woops, I completely missed the laptop part haha. :D

    So yeah. Uninstall random junk, use game booster, and turn down visuals.

    Turn down render distance to low or medium or if you have to very low. And if you have an hd texture pack installed uninstall it
