So we can help your further, please update your question with the following information as follows: Select the Options drop-down menu to the right of your question and select Edit Question.

1) The make and model of your PC or Laptop

2) Your Operating System

3) The make and model of your computer's Graphics Card or Subsystem.

4) The Speed and quality of your ISP.

5) [Optional] A bag of Chocolate for the SL Answers Volunteers

 

Also...

To summarize for all future PC purchasers looking at PCs with the Intel Graphics Subsystems in them - [ e.g.Graphics Card Vendor: Intel Graphics Card: Intel® HD Graphics 2000 or 2500 or 3000 or 4000 series ]...

These Intel Graphics subsystems are designed specifically to support:

1) 2D Business Graphics
2) Media Streaming [e.g. Your Blue Ray DVD's movie will look great]

Gaming is an afterthought! GPU processing on these Intel subsystems is limited by design to optimize 2D applications like the above. You are very unlikely to get SL running properly on these systems.

Serious gamers & 3D Virtual World enthusiasts need a Graphics Subsystem that focuses on 3D rendering and high GPU processing tasks. This is why you see the large cooling systems on higher-end Graphic Cards, to cool the GPU when it is busy calculating the 3D imagery & shading rendering for display multiple times per second [known as the FPS - Frames Per Second speed].

So, if this laptop has one of the aforementioned graphics systems in it, be ready to run it in the lowest possible video mode and be ready for crashes and/or unusual graphic artifacts on screen. Make sure you have the latest driver from Intel installed as well.

Chocolate?  Yum!

A GeForce 640M should run SL fine.  Plus you say you have loaded the latest drivers, that's good.

You say the avatar won't rez...that is most likely due to a poor internet connection.  Here are some suggestions:

 

  •     If you are using wireless internet, don't.  Use DSL, cable, or FIOS to connect to the internet.
  •     If you arfe using WiFi to connect to your local network, don't.  Use an ethernet cable to connect your computer to your network.
  •     Add the Free Public DNS from Google to your router's setup.
  •     Turn off your internet modem/router, wait several minutes, then turn them on and let them reboot.

Oh...and since this is a new computer, bear in mind that your texture cache isn't loaded yet, so everything will take a lot longer to rez, including your avatar, until those textures are in the cache.  BE PATIENT!  Do it now!
