Thanks for the help guys. I am new to PC gaming and not that savvy. In fact, I only downloaded steam because The Orange Box was $1.99 on sale and I have always wanted to play those games but never got around to on consoles because I heard there were a lot of problems with them and PC was the way to go. I am playing Half Life 2 with an Xbox One S controller and aside from the screen tearing, it looks fine. I made sure both TOB and Portal 2 could run on my PC before I bought them. I am not sure I understand all those command screen but maybe there is a youtube vid that can show me the step by step process.
For those telling me to just buy a $600 or whatever PC, LOL!! First off, I mostly see gaming laptop for around $800 for the lowest and like $1200 for the highest that can run todays games. I currently don't have any room for a desktop and I only spent $200 on my current Laptop that I have had for a year now. I didn't buy the laptop to play games on and am mainly a console gamer but my understanding is that these games should run fine for me. I have not tried Portal 2 yet as I am currently obsessed with Fallout 4 GOTY for PS4 but I am assuming if TOB has screen tearing, a newer game like Portal 2 will as well although I haven't checked for sure yet.
PC gaming is too expensive for me. All 3 main consoles combined would cost me like one lowend gaming PC and I wouldn't have access to any exclusives. I bought my One S for $175 brand new(Wal-mart glitch years ago). Switch for like $200 or so brand new(99 cent store lego dimensions return to Target for full price store credit trick plus 5% Red card discount) and I think like $225 for a brand new Darth Vader PS4 2 or 3 black fridays ago after it was on sale and I sold the Disney Infinity that came with it. So the $600 or so I spent on all 3 consoles would most likely not buy me a laptop that could run all the current games in 1080p at 30 or 60 fps and again, I would miss out on all the exclusives. Free online yes but I rarely play online and the extra cost does not justify it IMO.
All my drivers are up to date according to my comp and it says Intel 620 when I go check it. That's the first thing I tried.
