Asus K52JR Performance Issues

Asus K52jr-x4 15.6" led notebook - core...

Specs: Windows 7, i5 2.52 GHZ

I recently purchased an Asus K52JR after weeks of meticulous research, I was primarily buying for playing PC games, hoping that a decent rig could run most new games on medium - max graphical settings. After trying and testing several new games such as Just Cause 2 and Assassin's Creed - Brotherhood I realized that there is a problem, I've tried everything from rolling back the drivers (all up to date by the way) to turning everything down to low settings. I still get terrible performance, such as only 19 FPS on Just Cause 2 on the lowest settings. I've seen exactly the same model and specs on YouTube playing the game on max with over 30 FPS, I feel as if I've wasted my money, any help or technical ideas that could help me get the full performance out of the machine, I KNOW it can run them well, I just can't seem to get it to.

Here are my specs-

Asus Notebook K52JR series
Intel i5 Quad Core 2.52 GHZ
Windows 7 64- Bit
Ati Mobility Radeon HD 5470 Graphics
All up to date with drivers...

If you can help please reply, thanks.

did it work well the first week/
if you bought it for gaming and its not working correctly, you could always go back to the store, ask for a replacement, explain that its not playing games, although it should, tell them you want a replacement straight away, take a game and load it in the store, check the speed.
i cant find any real gaming stats on a quick search for this machine..

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

Ok, thanks for the help, I'll do that and demand a refund, I've seen YouTube videos of people playing games on high graphics without any lag whole my rig struggles on the lowest settings...

If you do not absolutely need it to be portable, a gaming desktop can give you better performance probably for less money and if you choose carefully, it will leave room for future upgrades.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
