Question

Why can't my computer run any games past 2001?

I have a decently powerful laptop to play my games on, as you will see in the screenshots. However, no matter how much i tinker with the settings or try to up the performance, it runs most modern games awfully. I can play Undertale fine, but if i try to run a Ps2 emulator or any new AAA game I get frame drops constantly.

My specs: http://imgur.com/a/rTl7F

If you need any other data, feel free to ask. I need any help i can get on this.

New Laptop

Get a new laptop. Even the Dell's gamestation struggles with the new generation games. the PS4 and Xbox One feature 8GBs of DDR5 memory that's used for games and logic simultaneous. It's a monster machine that most PCs can't keep up with because these games boast incredible power. Look at Fallout 4 it's recommended specs ask for i7 with 3.6Ghz, 8GB RAM, and a GTX 780M with atleast 3GBs of ram. These games require a machine that's dedicated to extreme gaming.

But even with your specs you should still be able to run Fallout 4 on low settings. Try going to nvidia and downloading the Nvidia Geforce Experience app and make sure your drivers, and onboard intel drivers are also up to date.
