Default New Laptop...FPS issues

I just got a new HP laptop...2.3 GHz Intel Core2 Duo processors, 4 GB ram, 1 GB Vram nvidia 9800 GTS video card, and also running Windows Vista

Ok the problem i am having is when i play video games (WoW, CS, etc) my fps idles around 60 and then when there are a lot of graphics being thrown around it drops to ~10.

I tried fiddling with the settings and no matter what i put them at the same problem keeps occurring...i also tried messing with the resolution to no avail.

Any thoughts would be helpful

Do you have the newest drivers for your vid card?

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

Give that a shot.

Also, open up windows Defender, click Tools, click Software Explorer. Look and see what all is starting up with Vista and disable what you don't need or use. You could also use MSCONFIG for this.
