You appear to have a very old Lenovo ThinkPad T500 laptop which originally came with Windows XP or Windows Vista 32-bit.
Is that correct?
How long has Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit been running in it?

Go into the Device Manager, then expand the Display Adapters heading.
Double-click the graphic device listed there to open its properties window.
Submit images of its "General" tab and "Driver" tab windows.

Version 8.15.10.2555 (which your Lenovo already has) is the most current Windows 7 64-bit driver for its Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family graphic device.

Using the Lenovo webpage link that's provided in post #3, it shows the same driver version for Windows 7 64-bit for that graphic device.

You haven't answered the 2 questions in the first part of post #2.

We still haven't confirmed if your Lenovo laptop is a ThinkPad T500.
We still don't know how long Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit has been installed in your Lenovo laptop.

Please do the following in that Lenovo ThinkPad T500:

Download MGADiag and save it to your desktop.
Double-click on MGADiag.exe to launch the program.
Click "Continue".
Ensure that the "Windows" tab is selected (it should be by default).
Click the "Copy" button, then leave the report window open.
Paste the report back here in your next reply.

That's not the log I that requested, however, it shows you have an OEM SLP copy of Windows 7 Ultimate in your Lenovo ThinkPad T500 laptop.

We don't provide help here with a non-genuine/pirated copy of a Windows operating system, so I requested a TSG staff member to jump in.

Your laptop was designed to run Windows XP or Windows Vista 32-bit and not the most system-hungry version of Windows 7 there is, so that may be the reason for your display issue.
