    Hello,

    I've been scouring the web for a while now and haven't found the answer yet.

    I'm running a Sony Vaio VPCEB laptop. I used this for gaming a year ago, and have started using it again. Now though, every few seconds while playing a game, the game will stutter or freeze for a couple seconds, then resume. It's made gaming impossible on the machine.

    Using PC Wizard, it tells me my graphics hardware is the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD. This is no problem since all the games I play are old or emulated. I can't seem to find a driver for it either.

    OS is Win7 x64. Any help you can offer would be great!

    Nope, not online. My connection is a satellite connection on a cruise ship (working, not playing). Can't do online gaming if I wanted to. :p

    I'm going to try those driver links again, but I couldn't find anything for the Intel processor, they only gave me ATI stuff.

    Ok, so I just burned a bunch of money on downloading the driver from Intel, and I get this error message:

    "The driver being installed is not verified for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer. Setup will exit."

    Well, Intel won't let me use their driver, and Sony doesn't provide one anymore. This is looking pretty bad. If anyone still has advice, I'd love to hear it.
