Hi! I just got a laptop Dell 15 5000 series with the following specs

Cpu AMD A9 9400
RAM DDR4 8GB 698.6 frequency single channel
Radeon R5 512mb

The problem is, I dont know if this laptop is capable of running a couple of games or no, I have tried so far with skyrim and it wont run it not even at lowest, the frames goes under 10fps. I dont know if its normal, or if there is something that can be done to this laptop so it can be faster?

Thanks

your GPU doesn't meet minimum requirements for Skyrim -
An R5 is WAAAY too low for this game.
You need an R7 240 or better with at LEAST 2Gb VRam and you only have 512Mb of VRam.
