On the Nvidia site it says:
"If you own a Dell Inspiron 1420, Dell XPS M1330, Dell XPS M1530, or Dell Latitude D630/D630c it is highly recommended that you first install this Dell software update. "
Did you get the software update? Someone also mentioned background programs, my anti-virus kept running in the beckground for me. Other than that, laptops historiclly run slower because of the narrow bus on a laptop, as opposed to a desktop. Last, HEAT; make sure that you have a cooling pad for you laptop when running games like STO.
