Oh, I already know this laptop sucks. It had statistically good parts in it, but the overall workmanship really stunk the computer up. At any given time i have about 80 processes running and the bulk 60 of them are taken from the SYSTEM and not the user. I was a moron for paying about 1800$ for this. I could have bought something about 600$ cheaper that was twice as good. I was 17 at the time and I had no idea though. Now I know better which is why I spent so much time trying to construct that desktop in all my other posts. I didn't want to make the same mistake as I did with buying this laptop.

You might need to check to make sure that the video preferences didn't get changed from the 7400GO to the Intel.
Where would I go to change the video preferences? Just for general info, I looked in my device manager and didn't find my graphics card listed but the intel one was.
