Question video hardware acceleration HP zv5000 N-videa

I recently installed Linux Mint 17 on my HP Pavilion zv5000. There is a non-closable dialog box which states:

"Running in software rendering mode
Cinnamon is currently running without video hardware acceleration and, as a result, you may observe much higher than norman CPU usage.
There could be a problem with your drivers or some other issue. For the best experience, it is recommended that you only use this mode for troubleshooting purposes"

It does run much slower than it did with XP H.E.

Does anyone here know of a solution to this issue? Any help will be appreciated.
