Hi everyone, I recently bought this laptop for work: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/laptops-netbooks/laptops/laptops/hp-15-g094sa-15-6-laptop-purple-10011517-pdt.html, and thought I would try it out at the weekend, knowing that it is capable of running games on decent settings. So I plugged the charger in, changed the power plan, changed the video power settings, looked through catalyst to make sure that it would run on high performance, but it lagged horrifically, and on fairly low settings in games like minecraft and Sonic and Sega all stars racing transformed. Can someone please help?

Your laptop is not designed for gaming. It is designed for school/work and light loads. Running demanding games like minecraft will cut your laptop life and cause problems later on down the road.
