I doubt that u can get a bios that specifically is designed for an os, otherwise the computer acronim would not be "Personal Computer" it would be computer as its not ur decision to make changes, but on a more uplifting note, have you in any way overclocked anything? or do u have a laptop stand? (with a fan) mabye usage of one could help if u dont.\015\012\015\012sorry if i sounded a bit off in that comment, but i wanted to express that microsoft didnt create the bios, ibm started it off, and other manufacturers made thier own versions of bios, \015\012\015\012its most likley one of two things here\015\012drivers not propperly designed and causes a game to max out cpu usage (which in turn heats up dramatically)\015\012\015\012or fan on cpu/coolant not doing the biz, \015\012(or dust blockages)\015\012\015\012sounds more likley to be the second one really though.\015\012\015\012how technical are you as in reguards to laptop and thermal temperature diagnosis?\015\012\015\012if u are of the required knowledge , i would suggest 2 things,\015\012\015\0121) open it up (carefully, physically note where each screw goes) and take out the fan & if possible the cpu (very very carefully, one bent pin and thats the end of that item.)\015\012\015\012then....\015\012\015\0122) literally clean the item with a running tap\015\012(do not get the fan wet at all if possible)\015\012and place a new dose of thermal paste evenly \015\012on the cpu and the under-side of the cpu cooler \015\012\015\012(2b) place carefully back as they came out (use rubber gloves to prevent any static the quick and easy way.\015\012and turn it on as a quick test before packing up the bottom of the laptop.\015\012\015\012test questions to think about:\015\012\015\0121) did it work?\015\0122) any beeping?, (what kind of beeps)\015\012if neither, i would suggest a reputable technician to have a look at it, u can get some rogues, so u need to shop-around before u take to the first person (if indeed u have to that is)\015\012\015\012hope it helps\015\012des
