I bought a new laptop nearly a week ago, but all of my games except League of Legends and World of Warcraft run at 20 FPS. I get 60 FPS maxed on league and about 30 maxed on WoW. But my other games stay at 20, even though I know they can go higher. Blacklight: Retribution is one of the games I have problems with, it runs at 20 on minimum settings and just a hair under 20 maxed out.Is this a problem with the Fraps program I use to benchmark and record? Or is it an in-game problem. This also happens when I play Tribes: Ascend and GTA IV. I will be upgrading my RAM soon but I don't think this is the problem. Thank you for any help!

Specs:
AMD Quad-Core processor A6-3420M (1.5 GHz) with Turbo CORE technology up to 2.4 GHz (only when needed)
AMD Radeon HD 6520G with 512 Graphics System Memory
