    Which game? CS 1.6 or CSS? You host your "server" on your laptop?

    Your problem is Vista, I Have the exact same laptop, and the same problems, I got rid of Vista and put in XP pro, now im getting fluid fps's. ;)

    If you haven't upgraded to SP1 yet do it now. that can easily handle CSS.

    I believe you would benefit from changing to XP pro purely because Vista would be sucking the life out of that processor and graphics card.

    CSS and CS would run fine with either OS, however, you would probably get the biggest gain and more fluid fps going with XP. Your choice :).

    It's your wireless/vista I just bought a laptop similar specs:

    Intel ® Core ™ 2 Duo T5250 (2.0 GHz)
    -- Memory: 2GB DDR2 667MHz (2x1024MB)
    -- Hard Drive: 250GB S-ATA (5400rpm)
    -- DVD burner with support for Dual-Layer
    -- 15.4 "WXGA 1280x800
    -- Graphics: Nvidia Gforce 8400M G
    -- WLAN a / g, 1.3 MP Webcam
    -- Windows Vista Home Premium (downgraded to xp/linux/hackintosh)

    Basically it really depends on the OS/ISP.

    Runs 1.6/CSS fine

    Go into your BIOS
    Disable "Speed Stepping"
    That fucked with my processor and made mt T7300 2GHz Core2Duo run ad 533 MHz

    If you research speed stepping you would know it slows down your processor when it's not being used to save power. Load a game then measure it.

    The CPU is too slow for hosting server
    and hosting server on lappy is a really bad idea

    Check you power saving. Mine did this, changed to high performance from max battery and fixed. Maybe a bit simple, but worth checking

    8400 has a few variants. the M and the M GTS is pretty much crappy.
    If it's the MGT then it's sweet :)
