Computer: HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC
Product Number: LX264EA
OS: Windows 7 Premium 64bit (Norwegian)
Processor: Intel (R) Core(TM) i7-2630QM CPU @2.00 GHz
RAM: 8GB (2 x Samsung 4gb 1333 MHz)

The computer specs are listed below, although in Norwegian. I'm unsure whether or not it's sold in other countries (Cannot be found on HP/en anyways)
Hi, I recently decided to buy Battlefield 3, and checked http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/ on beforehand. My computer passes at every point except Video Card. It sais that the required Dedicated Video RAM is 512MB and that I have 0MB. The webpage I bought the computer at sais it's got 2GB dedicated Video RAM. And if I go to Screen Resolution --> Advanced Settings on my computer, it sais the following:
Total Video Ram: 6373
Dedicated Video Ram: 2560
System video Ram: 0MB
Shared system RAM: 3813
Now, my computer is only a year old and it was advertised as a Gaming Computer. Pretty expensive too. Yet, it has never been able to do any Gaming. On World of Warcraft I get around 20 FPS with medium Graphic Quality (My friend is sitting beside me on his Macbook Pro and playing with 61fps with Highest quality). My computer can't handle Minecraft at all, lags out until the program crashes. (My 5 year old acer, a computer that was also cheaper, does better on all accounts).
So I finally figure, something must be wrong.
I thought it might be a driver problem, but when I look up the driver on either AMD's or HP's website and download it, it fails to install after extracting all the files. I get the following message: "This system doesn't meet the minimum requirements to install this software." (Translated from Norwegian) HP's drivers for my exact computer model gives me something very simular.
If I go to HP Recovery Manager and attempt to install the Graphic Driver listed there, it also fails.
Any help would be deeply appreciated!
