Graphic cards need driver-updates. The website of the graphic' card manufacturer should supply you latest drivers for your specific system.

Check at HP for the specific details of the graphical unit your system has. Or check with your operating system by checking the properties of your graphics in your notebook.

According to the specifications, your notebook has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 Graphics card. But, manufacturers often change cards so do check your own notebook specifications. 

To find out for sure what graphics card you have:

Select Start Menu > Run

In the command box type dxdiag and press ok

Click the Display tab in the window that opens

The top line under the section Device should give you the graphics card manufacturer and card series

I don't see a listing on the AMD/ATI notebook driver page for Compaq so probably best to visit the Compaq Presario driver page http://www.compaq.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html click the Software & Driver Download button and proceed that way.
