Default laptop gaming issue

new to the forums and im sorry if this isnt the place to post this but i have an issue that me and some buddies of mine are pondering about..

i just bought the new LoTR battle for middle earth computer game and wondering why it "lags" on my computer...this lag is basically the game going at normal speed and then slows down then goes back to normal speed then slows etc etc

now one friend of mine told me its my graphics card..i have a nvidia 5200
one told me its how much ram i got (512mB)
one told me its my screen lcd monitor and refresh rate (60htz) however another friend who's on a desktop has same refresh rate?? and my internet connection is fine its cable and i play another game called day of defeat and my ping is like max 70 and this game is also slow start as well....so i just wanted some other opinions....
i read the other gaming post before and some of the questions....yes ive played both multiplayer and single and it is both like this for LoTR and it is like this for multiplayer fo DoD...if u have anymore questions about my system ill be glad to answer because i would like some answers....hah thx in advance....oh and its a intel pentium 4 3.2gHZ

thx in advance
chris
ps hopefully i posted in the right spot

Do you have spyware? This could cause that.
