Hello everyone, I was wondering if there was any safe way to make my laptop perform better when playing video games. For some games there is no trouble, but some of the newer games, or games like FPS's which need a higher frame rate, I notice a significant performance drop. The mouse just does not even seem to float across the screen at a normal speed. Any help would be great. These are my specs:

No. You're pretty much stuck with what you've got.

Whoa, dude. WAAAAAay too much information. However, based on the following relevant information, here's what you need to improve gaming performance on your laptop. Faster CPU, Faster graphics Subsystem, in other words Faster Laptop. And it would probably help if you had a 64 bit version of Windows but that isn't as important as faster hardware.

Shut everything off, remove the battery, and open up the case (where possible). Use compressed air to blow out all the dust and hairs. Fan efficiency and overheating is a performance killer. Make sure that when you have the computer on, it's resting on a smooth flat surface, not your lap, not a pillow, something rigid, so that airflow is decent. Get a laptop cooler, if you think it will help.

When the CPU on a laptop overheats, which is often under load, the performance throttles down until it cools off. So if you're noticing intermittent framerate drops and your fans get loud, then you might have overheating problems.

You can't upgrade your GPU (which is integrated in your case anyway). You might be able to upgrade your CPU, you'll have to do some investigation on your own to see if that's possible on your laptop.

You also might be able to overclock your CPU, but on a laptop that is susceptible to overheating, that might be a bad idea.

Laptops are intrinsically rather static and not able to be upgraded. If you're really interested in gaming, then consider building your own desktop. You can put together a decent system for yourself for under $600 and in the future you can upgrade components for a few hundred dollars to keep up with the more demanding games.

Basically you have integrated 3200 graphics, which is a low clocked 40 shader IGP. If you want an improved gaming experience you need a new laptop.

Ok, I figured as much. Thanks for the help.
