Did you remove unneeded bloatware from the laptop? I.E. add-ons/ads for antivirus, office, etc.

Also, turned off the "start when windows load" (may not exactly be worded the same way), options from a couple of programs?

BTW, any info on the graphics card besides being Nvidia? Is it a Nvidia 200M, 300M, 400M or 500M series?

If you don't know, go to (World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies | NVIDIA). You may have to choose region, click download drivers > choose 'Option 2' Graphics driver button to automatically locate your card (follow on screen prompts and requests). The site should be able to tell you more about your video card, and if you have the latest drivers installed.

Also, graphic intense games may require even beefier hardware than what a laptop can use.
