Question

You are probably reaching the limits of what that machine is capable of doing.  The HP ProBook 6440b is a mid-range notebook for business use, not for gaming.  It only has 2 GB of mamory and it has an integrated graphics chip, not a graphics card.  You're never going to get more than mediocre performance in SL with a machine like that.  In the time that you have been gone, SL has added new features and all of the viewers have become more sophisticated. There's a lot more mesh for your graphics chip to render too. That means SL is expecting more out of your computer than it used to, so it's no surprise that you're finding more lag.  All you can do is

turn down the Quality slider in Preferences

reduce your draw distance

reduce the number of non-imposter avatars

reduce the Maximum Complexity slider

turn off advanced lighting

or get a new computer.
