Do you have a third party graphics adapter installed?
Thank you joe_intel! No, I do not have a third party graphics adapter. Intels processors and integrated graphics have treated me well enough to where I haven't needed a third party adapter.
I'm not entirely sure what the issue was, but it was a driver one. I say this because I was told to download a specific program to remove my drivers - and while doing that it detected and managed to delete drivers that I previously "deleted" through the hardware manager.
After that I downloaded the latest VGA drivers for my MOBO, and the display adapter worked fine.
However; I have been having some serious performance issues since then even though I've been able to utilize the integrated graphics and the display adapter.
Benchmarking with FurMark I only get a measly 8fps running at 720p. Playing my games I don't seem to be getting 1/10th of the power I was using my i3 previous.
I contacted intel support this morning and I helped me, as I hadn't realize that my BIOS wasn't up to date. I've currently updated to F5, though I'm still getting what could only be described as "very horrible" performance.
Did you check your CPU Temperature?
Sorry for the delayed response - College and work, unfortunately.
Temperatures while trying to play GW2 peaked at 58C, never went higher.
I used Core Temp to monitor. I did notice my wattage was fluctuating though, even while resting.
