Why won't DVTM in Intel 4000 HD recognize games?

Laptop: Lenovo Thinkpad E530

Quick Specs: Processing speed - 2.5 GHz

RAM - 5.8 GB Useable

OS - Windows 7 Premium

So the reason why I can't run newer video games isn't because of anything else on my computer BUT the Intel 4000 HD Graphics. I've even gone onto systemrequirementslab.com, checked if I could run Battlefield 3, and the results say that I have all the recommended hardware EXCEPT for 1 GB of Dedicated Video RAM. However, when I checked if I could run Battlefield 2, the results said that I could run it on the highest possible settings because apparently, I had 1.7 GB of Dedicated Video RAM. Why is it that DVTM on the Intel 4000 seems to work for games made in 2005, but not for games made in 2012 when it clearly has enough Total Video RAM to do so?

DVMT (Dynamic Video Memory Technology) will be adjusted dynamically depending on what is available and on what is required from the game.

What is the specific problem that you are seeing when playing this game in your system?

Please check the information provided in the following site and provide the information requested there:

Well I don't actually have Battlefield 3, but an example is ArmA II Operation Arrowhead. When I checked systemrequirements.com, it said that I could run it on max settings just fine because all my hardware checks out and I apparently have 1.7 GB of dedicated video RAM. However, when I do run the game, I can barely get 30 FPS at the lowest possible settings. I've checked and downloaded the latest patch for the game, latest BIOS updates, and latest driver updates for my Intel 4000 HD, but ArmA still runs horribly. This has been going on since I first downloaded the game a week or two after I got this laptop.

Please test the generic driver that we have posted here:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=23106&lang=eng&OSVersion=Windows%207... https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=23106&lang=eng&OSVersion=Windows%207...

In addition, please update the BIOS of the system you have. For this you can refer to:

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS033264 http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS033264

Furthermore, make sure there is no other software or application running in the background.

I installed the driver, and I updated my BIOS not that long ago. I downloaded a demo for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 (just so that I could run a test with a more recent game) and I could barely get up to 10 FPS on the lowest settings.
