All right I have a weird problem. I have an ASUS laptop with a first generation quad core i7 and an ATI Mobility Radeon 5730. Lately it has stopped running games as well as I would like it to. Specifically Modern Warfare 3. I keep lowering the graphics settings and it just gets worse and worse. So then I max out the graphics setting and it gets better. It's the weirdest thing, but I can't seem to get any kind of consistent performance out of it.

Update the graphic driver and make sure power profile set to high performance. If possible, use MSI Afterburner to OC the GPU. That card OC nicely.
I already updated drivers and maxed out power consumption, which I forgot to mention I suppose, but I will definitely try MSI afterburner. Thanks.
