I bought a samsung laptop a month ago.Its fine.The processor is AMD A8-4500 with Radeon HD graphics 7640G at 1.9Ghz.The RAM is 6GB(5.46 usable).My OS is Windows 8 (pre-installed).I mainly bought if for entertainment i.e for gaming and videos.I have four games installed in my laptop namely,Assassin's creed 2(2009),Sleeping dogs(2012),Hitman:blood money(2006) and splinter cell conviction(2010).The games start and run fine only till the game menu.When i load the games,they wont run smoothly in the gameplay, that is, they are sluggish.I have even set the option "high performance" in the AMD vision center(switchable graphics) for all the games,but they run slowly.The CPU utilization is around 20 percent.What should  i do?.Please help me and suggest me some useful remedies.

Set the graphics quality to low in the games, and Turn the resolution to no higher then 1366x768.  I have no idea why you would buy that laptop if you wanted a laptop to game. You should have purchased something with a dedicated GPU.
