Default Warcraft III FPS Problems

Hello everyone this is my second thread on this new laptop that my aunt just bought me:

Toshiba - Satellite Laptop with AMD Turion™ X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile Processor ZM-80 - Fusion - M305D-S4830

Its running windows vista 64-bit and when I play games like Warcraft III the fps isn't what I expected hovering from 40's to 50's. Why is it so low when I played on outdated desktops they reach 60+? My friend also owns an HP with a 8400M and is getting only 50's. Does this have to do something with Vista and older games?

If not then is there something I should know when it comes to gaming in vista(tweaks, adjustments, settings) because I've always been using Windows XP.

Edit: Also I have cleaned my system out by defraging and getting rid of useless programs. I have 4 gigs of ram so I think my laptop is overqualified for the game.
