Umm, laptop? Sloooooow and nearly full hard drive, integrated video, not great for game playing.
First try defragging your HDD,that may help some. After that increase the size of your paging file.
That's really about all the advice can give you, laptops will never be as good as a desktop for games because of the compromises made to keep them small and use very little power. It is probaly fine to play older games like BF1942, but state of the art games like BF2 are very demanding on the PC components.
