Default I need help with my FPS

Hello, I'm running a laptop, and I get around 10 FPS on most games on the lowest quality settings, and around 1 to 3 FPS on the highest. The graphics render perfectly, but my FPS is too low for it to matter what the settings are. I'm wondering if I just need better hardware, or if I can do something to increase my terrible FPS. So here are my specs....

Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium (6.0, Build 6001)
Manufacturer: Toshiba
Model: Satellite L305D-S5900
BIOS: InsydeH2O version 1.90
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Processor TK57
Memory: 2940MB RAM(3GB)
DirectX version 10

I appologize if this is the wrong place on the Forums for this topic, as you can see I'm new here.

Right section...... But saddly your system has a x1250 gpu. Its a low end gpu, so what youre getting is basically what youre stuck with.

Try lowering the res and killing all the features, this might get you a few extra fps.

Start a new Thread posting a Budget and what you would like the PC to do, I'm sure you'll get a good setup. If you've never built a computer before check out this link
