Over heating probelm and freezing playing Games

\015 I have the same problems. I monitored my laptop's temp and while playing Bejewel online the temp went up all the way in the high 90's and shut itself off. Every time I try to play a game the game freezes after a few minutes and I'm left with nothing to do then restart... \015

Answers :

You know in 'f that would be a nice weather.. in 'c its a nice Sauna.

The heatsinks and cooling in general is very poor on this series of laptops, I would recommend you use canned air in the ventilation slots and on the fan to get all the dust out.

also you could try one of those coolings pads that go under the laptop.

few years ago I had the same issue, what I did was I opened up the laptop and on the model I had 1522wlmi, the vga adapter card (on that model) is on the front / top. I put a Processor cooler from a desktop computer there, it kept it cool. down to 50'c instead of the 120'c it used to get. I even have a picture of it somewhere.

Your machine shouldn't just freeze instantly, unless the video adapter or mainboard has already suffered some damage from overheating.

You could try reinstalling windows to the machine, with the discs that came with it or with a normal windows setup cd.

after that see if the freezeing is gone, it won't solve the overheating problem but it should get rid of the freezeing unless its a hardware problem, the machine shouldn't overheat in just few minutes. Well the cooler these models is very poor and I don't recommend these laptops to any kind of gameing unless your playing solitaire.. ofcourse...

Is that 90'f or 90'c?
