    Can't get any video!


    I downloaded a demo for a game a couple days ago and all I get is audio, my video drivers are up to date. The developers said they were using a program called Unity 3D. I will list my specs below.

    HP ENVY X2 running Windows 8
    Processor: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU Z2760 @ 1.80Ghz 1.80 GHz
    Memory: 2.00GB
    System Type: 32-bit Operating System, x86 based processor

    Graphics Card: Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator

    P.S I have also been to the Gaming part of this forum, but they didn't really know what was wrong.

    The GMA is really low end graphics and may simply not support what you are trying to run. Surprised it doesn't simply crash completely.

    There are actually 8 drivers for GMA? I'm surprised by that also.

    I did find this: How to install intel display drivers in Windows 8 - Drivers - Windows 8

    Is there a way to set the game up so it will work with GMA?

    I also see that you are using a 2 in 1. That might also be a problem. What mode are you using it in?

    I would say that the graphics are just too weak to display the video.

    Personally, I would not install 8 on that machine. Would go with 7 or even XP. No old system discs?

    Never mind, see now it is a touchscreen. Pretty under-powered on the graphics side though.

    Okay, that's what I was afraid of. Thank you anyway.

    Sorry to say, it was one of those machines that was kind of cutting edge when it was produced, now it is really behind the times. These same types of hybrid touch pads are now using AMD APUs and NVidia mobile GPUs.
