your video chipset (videocard if you will) is an intel HD x3100

currently their top model is an HD x4500

now if the x4500 is equal to a radeon 9800pro from like 2005 where does your sit (roughly), 1 year back so 2004. NOW if you have a graphics card from 6 years ago what hope do you ahve of running a game from today? not too good is it..

regretably you cannot upgrade the video chipset of a laptop.

I dont find any point in such threads.Just go to this website then select a game and check if you can run it.

That site says I can run Crysis good, yet I failed on L4D2. I don't really trust it :P

My 4500MHD runs it decently on low, but I wouldnt expect much.

Well it depends on what are the system requerments the devs put.And maybe you just didn`t have enough disk space?It happened with me 1 time

From a purely technical standpoint:

Can you run it? Yes.

Can you run it in a playable state? Not likely.
