Your problem is? Running the games or just using the Steam app? You probably won't be able to run games released in the last couple of years with those specs, with maybe settings like anti-aliasing enabled.

Your laptop doesn't have a graphics module, just an integrated GPU as part of the chipset.
- It is a very weak one at that.

You would be able to run Half-Life (1) games on it, such as Team Fortress Classic
but certainly not Half-Life 2 or any Source games.

- Check that you have more than 15% free HDD space.
- Run a Defrag
- Run a Check Disk
- etc.
