This game also suffers some various coding issues when it comes to graphics and is just a bloated resource hog in every sense of the phrase, whether CPU or GPU.
this has nothing to do with the actual power of the laptop.The graphical options at your disposal depends ONLY on drivers and the exposed DX capabilities of the graphic card. What is happening here is that the game is reconizing the HD4000 and limiting the settings instead of using the GeForce capabilities. And the stuck at loading issue is a common one.
