I've run into this before. I settled my problems with this heppening by installing the omega drivers for my video card. www.omegadrivers.net

I also saw a performance boost in my graphics card after installing the drivers.

Good Luck,

Yea. He doesn't have any drivers for intel chipset video cards. More than likely the video card can't handle the game very well.

Try an older game if you have one. See if that will run.

For the most part, laptops/notebooks are not good for gaming unless you buy one that's spec'd out to be a gaming machine. You can have the hottest CPU available but if you don't have a decent video card, you're not gonna be able to play games well. And depending on the game, it may not play at all.

This chart will show you how well the "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950" rates:

Did you look at the minimum system specs before downloading NFS Carbon Demo, especially the graphics requirements?

"NVIDIA Geforce4 Ti/ATI Radeon 8500 or higher"

I don't think your system meets the minimum requirements.

Well, theres two ways to find out.

1) Try it.
2) Does your computer meet the specs?.

Yeah I have NFS Carbon for my HP Slimline and It has a Mini Intel GPU that isnt supported by the game. Is there any drivers as mentioned above to fix this problem? My Hp does the same thing.

"Is there any drivers as mentioned above to fix this problem?"

It's not a driver issue, it's a hardware issue. Either buy a better laptop or install the game of a desktop system that meets the recommended requirements.
