Ignore the scrubs. Try updating your bios, updating your video driver, updating everything on your computer you can find to update. Then in Oblivion, play with the settings sliders. Even two super powerful ATI X1900XT in Crossfire can't play Oblivion at max settings
, nor can even 4 NVidia GeForce 7900 GTX in Quad SLI
Try setting the sliders to minimum and increasing your resolution to the natural resolution for your laptop. Then slide 1 slider at a time to figure out which increases the image quality the most while lowering performance the least.
