Default ouch, i just burnt myself. 3dmark result,laptop

no kidding, i just burnt myself on the bottom of my laptop, its just over a year old, and.... Futuremark - ORB - Result Analyzer

i hope that link works.

my favorite part "Your system compared to all 1750640 system configurations. There are 1748340 systems with a higher score and 2300 systems with a lower score than your system."

any suggestions on what i can do to improve my performance? keeping in mind that i am using a laptop. just about the only thing i can think of is to swap out the ram, can allways use more ram, right?

my thought is that laptops were just not designed to go all out on 3D games?

if your using a laptop why are you trying to play games...... if you have a laptop then you will need a mobile graphics card, 2gb ram and a decent cpu what are the specs of your laptop?

Graphics Card: Intel(R) Mobile 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Family

Wow, Intel have such amazing graphics cards. Maybe I should replace my 8800 GTS.

The Intel card is what's killing you in games. Shared memory (eats up your system ram like mad) and the fact that it doesn't even have hardware TnL is murdering your frame rates. It has to render TnL in software which is awful for performance. Intel's gpu's are very cheap, that's why they're in a lot of stuff, but they're just not meant for anything other than basic windows tasks and light gaming.
