Confused - what graphics card does my laptop have?

[ Edited ]
I'm very confused! I have a G60-115ea laptop.

Basically the GM45 has a 4500mhd which can play hd while a GL40 has a 4500m which can't.

I don't know if my laptop has the GL40 or GM45!

HP advertise that it is a 4500mhd but at the same time a GL40 - how can this be? Windows says that it is a GL40 with 4500m. And GPU-Z state that it is a GM45.

Which do I believe? And why would the laptop have a HDMI port if it can't play HD movies?

Hi,

Install CPU-Z (choose there mainboard and check chipset) and Everest (Click on Tools -> Everest CPUID and check also chipset). Both should show You correct answer.
