Second Life gets rather cranky on a laptop, so depending upon your wireless either move closer to the router, reset it or use wired connection. You can also check your connection speed and ping rates here which would help to uncover any connection issues that you might have. http://www.speedtest.net/  they also offer a ping test as well.

Good luck and I hope you are able to solve the issue. You also didn't mention the hardware you were using such as graphics CPU and memory, those can have an impact upon things as well.

While you may have a good Internet connection your connection to the SL servers may be a problem. Test it to see if it is the problem. http://blog.nalates.net/2011/10/26/troubleshoot-your-sl-connection/

Since you did not ptovide us info about your computer and viewer, we can only guess about what may be the problem. Click your viewer's HELP->ABOUT.... and copy-paste that info into any post where you ask a tech question.

This type of problem is also indicative of a computer that is over heating. Download a copy of Open Hardware Monitor and see if you have a heating problem. Feeling the case may or may NOT give you an idea.  

I recently had a heat sink come lose and create the same problem you are seeing.

if you don't have a decent dedicated graphic chip SL on any laptop will be disappointing, hardly able to run it on a acceptable level of details. If i had to run sl on 64m and low....omg i'd prefer to stay out, that's even worse view than 9 years ago when i joined.
