If you have intel graphics, it is integrated graphics on motherboard and not at all good with most games, especially newer games with intensive graphics and high memory usage. You may have purchased the wrong computer for gamers altogether.
From PC Magazine review of this model(NOT for gaming):
The dv7-6b55dx doesn't come equipped with a discrete graphics card, like the HP dv7-6163cl (AMD Radeon HD 6770M). Rather it has Intel integrated graphics, which won't get you as far as a dedicated chip would on the gaming grid. The dv7-6b55dx wasn't able to garner a playable frame rate average (30fps is considered playble) in either DirectX 10 Crysis (13.6 frames per second) or DirectX 9 Lost Planet 2 (20 fps); whereas the HP dv7-6163cl tore through Crysis (53fps) on Medium quality settings and 1,024-by-768 resolution. So if you want to play anything beyond World of Warcraft, you'll have to start considering laptops in the $900 price range.
Switching is not going to help you, as the issue here, is the integration and no dedicated graphics card inside the laptop.
