I tested half-life, counter-strike and hollow knight.Welcome to the forum
Check the video specs of the game(s) you're playing. My guess is it/they need more than integrated—which btw is not a card, it's part of the CPU.
What games are you trying?
Did you compare their specs to your PC?I tested half-life, counter-strike
yes, i have 2x4ram and a ssd tooDid you compare their specs to your PC?
Compared to the faster HD Graphics 4000, the 2500 one features less Execution Units (6 versus 16) and only one texture sampler. Therefore, the performance is clearly worse and only suited for low demanding gaming. Intel states a 10 to 15% higher performance compared to the old Sandy Bridge based HD Graphics 2000. Therefore, only older casual games with low requirements are playable with the HD 2500.
the only game that the cursor appears is in hollow knight
I'll try to find another cpu, if the cursor appears with the other cpu I'll let you know here.its a 2d game, its graphics aren't that punishing really.
that could be one reason.
could be cpu's grunt is enough, the 9800GTX is still better than his igpu, by a fair margin
Good stuff! And thanks for reporting the solutionI managed to solve my problem
