Compaq laptop, and counter strike

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

A friend and I jumped on the November 5 $398 Compaq Presario V5305WM
deal last weekend. Since then we've installed around 6 games and so far
only ran into minor issues. However, one problem we're both really
irritated with is Counter Strike 1.6; on both of our machines we're
utilizing different mice, he has a MS Optical and I have a Logitech MX
500. The funny part is, on both of our machines there is an annoying
'lag' attributed with CS. Nothing to do with lag or anything of the
network sort; nothing to do with processing power as we run WoW and
UT2004 at a decent framerate. No, this issue is laptop-specific and we
both lack the knowledge to correct the problem. FYI, here are the
machine specs:

* 2.00 GHz Mobile AMD Sempron=E2=84=A2 Processor 3300+
* 512MB 333MHz DDR (upgradable to 2GB)
* 60GB 5400RPM Hard-Drive
* 24X DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive
* 15.4=E2=80=9D WXGA High-Definition BrightView Widescreen (1280 x 800)
* Integrated 56k modem, 100mb Network Card and 54g 802.11b/g Wireless
* 1 ExpressCard/54 Slot (Not PCMCIA)
* 10.2"(L) x 14.1"(W) x 1.38"(min H) /1.77"(max H)
* 6.4 lbs

any idea why this is happening?
