Questions I should've asked earlier

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

After countless failed boots, I finally reverted my windows back into 8.1, though it wasn't without consequences: first I had to say goodbye to all my files before reinstalling the OS (even though I've told the service guys to back up the files in the laptop's HDD first because I knew well the files were still there yet they forced me to believe that it doesn't work that way as if I'm that stupid), I had to pay the same price as the battery because there was no other place (even my friend said it was a scam to pay that much for just reinstalling the OS, not to mention it's close to the homecoming season so most places are closed), and lastly to afford it I was forced to sell my personal stuffs, even my pen tablet

Still there are some other things unsolved yet

1.)

I know a low-range laptop is not meant for gaming but I think my specs are already above the minimum reqs of most games I have (hell I spent around $15 for the 'basic' games), you can check my specs here, now about how the game runs let's take L4D2 as the example, the 'recommended settings' left me smooth only at certain parts but caused more lags, making it unplayable (my laptop will eventually get really hot when playing further), the all-low settings was smoother but it didn't kill the lags (still makes my laptop hot), not to mention the other games like PD2 and CS:GO and so on

What should I do? well, I don't have many programs running other than the antivirus and the small ones like ccleaner and puu.sh so the RAM is fine, perhaps the processor or something else

2.)

About smartphone, after I sold mine I was looking for a cheaper replacement, now I got Huawei Y6

It's pretty much basic (the '1GB RAM + 8GB internal' kind of basic), running messenger apps, browsing and some light gaming are fine with it, however the problem comes from the screen: I spotted what people call 'dead pixel' but only visible when all the screen is gray, especially with black theme in LINE, it's barely visible on most colors though, is it fatal? I was unable to replace it with a new unit when I was still around the store, the last time I asked the guys in the store they insisted that it was the anti-scratch glass, but no it's clearly inside the phone's screen

3.)

Any racing game comparable to something like Gran Turismo, for PC? my brother doesn't want me to play with his PS3 :c

    1.)
    Good question. Well, saying that it's a low-end laptop, there's pretty much nothing you can do. I mean, you can't tweak it any further if it has Intel HD Graphics.

    My suggestion is to go to the Graphics Properties (right click on the desktop first), and tweak whatever you can.

    3.)

    I always searched for a Gran Turismo alternative myself, but without luck. I don't see what's wrong with something such as Grid Autosport (if I guessed the name), or perhaps Need for Speed: Shift.

    Edit: Didn't notice the specs, sorry. I see that you have a GeForce 820m. I don't have any experience with those, but if that's a dedicated card by any means, you might overclock it.

    It's also a laptop, and shouldn't have any problems with Left4Dead 2, at least with those specs.
    I suggest you to click on the battery icon in the right side of the taskbar, and select "Performance Mode".

    Lag is caused by your CPU. Source games need good cpu or you get stutters.

    I've got no answers for the first two problems but I can answer this one :D

    If you want a sort of arcade racing feel go to the Dirt series. Dirt 3 and Dirt Rally are pretty fun to play.

    If you want something more real I've been getting into Project CARS recently, and it's by far one of the best looking and feeling racing simulators I've played. Would highly recommend that if you've got $30 to spare.
