Why does NBA 2K13 run slow on my HP pavilion dv6 i3, where I use my Intel HD Graphics which is 2 GB instead of the ATI Radeon Graphics because it is not working.

Integrated graphics are almost always terrible for gaming. I'm willing to bet it doesn't have 2GB VRAM either, more than likely it has no dedicated VRAM and instead uses regular RAM, which multiplies its terribleness.

Solution: use your laptop's ATI card.

Yeah you are right. The problem is I can't use my ATI card because whenever I switch to it I get a blue screen, do you know if it's the driver or the videocard itself which has the problem? – user61835 Mar 2 '13 at 19:05
Have you tried doing a clean install of your video driver, or if that fails, downgrading your driver a couple of versions? i assume the card works fine with other games? – kotekzot Mar 2 '13 at 20:08
the video card totally doesn't work so I can't use it in any other way. I tried installing the driver but still no good. – user61835 Mar 2 '13 at 21:02
It doesn't work for any game? – kotekzot Mar 3 '13 at 0:36
Yeah. My laptop has switchable graphics so whenever I switch to ATI I get a blue screen so I could never use ATI – user61835 Mar 3 '13 at 5:16
