Sorry but what video card is in this one?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / July 25, 2013 7:39 AM PDT

The graphics card listed looks like an Intel GMA and not a card. As gamers know, this is going to give it's owner a lot of trouble.

There is some hope if these are Flash games and the cure is often to DISABLE FLASH HARDWARE ACCELRATION. As that is widely discussed I won't detail that further.

The dump file is something folk think has value but in decades of troubleshooting you find it's something interesting but rarely lends anything of value to the discussion.

Video card

The blue screen appearing while playing games has no relation with video card. This may be the BIOS issue. Or may be some of the software files may have be deleted. Also would like to suggest to check for CMOS battery status. Graph card as said is 782 Mb and for playing games with advanced graphic requirement is more.
