So, recently, I bought a game from Steam, which is Worldwide Soccer Manager 2009. But, after I played it for two hours or so, my laptop starts to shutting down. This is not a problem with other programs, nor the previous edition of the games, because if I didn't play the game, my laptop goes normal.
So, is there any way to prevent the overheating? It's starting to piss me off. I have 3GB ram, I thought it was enough for this game, since it only needed 1 GB or something. ._.

Your own laptop computer entirely transforming off of indicates that the activity is actually overly thinking the particular PC. While GOOD OLD RAM does perform an important component of multi-tasking along with the such, the particular PC is the main factor. It is advisable to examine the particular specs from the activity and discover precisely what Processing Power to perform the game easily. The majority of notebooks will not have a high end Processing Energy and they regular concerning with 1. 8 GHz as well as two. 0 GHz which can be rarely ample pertaining to gaming.
In case it turns out that your laptop computer can handle the game, then you could either look at precisely what The actual Slayer mentioned of course, if the challenge nonetheless is persistant subsequently it can be time to open that will newborn upwards and cleanse the particular supporter interior.

Worse event scenario if you carry on and perform the activity like this is actually that you will fry the laptop computer and it will eventually halt to work. Mending it'll be a new bitch.

So, i've had the similarly same problem: My Gateway NV55C likes to overheat whenever I play World of Warcraft. Now.. I'm not going to say it's in the best of shape, but it does sound as though the fan is chugging along. So I don't know whether I'm hearing wrong or if it's KIA, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Overheating is a common problem with laptops. The compact nature of their design causes problems with ventilation and limits the power and size of the CPU fan that is used to cool them. The more a computer's resources are taxed, the more likely overheating will be an issue. Many computer games put a lot of stress on the cpu and cause it to heat up. This doesn't necessarily mean you will never be able to play games on your laptop, but you will need to take steps to ensure that your laptop can remain cool. Always play in a cooler room, or run the air conditioning while you're playing video games so that the air surrounding the laptop is cool.

If you are talking about CPUID's CPU-Z, you can download it at the link provided, but that will not monitor temperatures; unless they recently added additional functionality. They might have some other software though that I don't know about. CPU-Z is useful though, and it is freeware, not trial. A good tool for monitoring CPU temps is CoreTemp, which is also freeware and can be downloaded at the link provided.

By the way my laptop is somewhat a netbook, not that small, its a gateway LTseries, running at 1.2 GH, AMD athlon 64 512MB. But i could play BIG games ex: STARCRAFT II, MODERN WARFARE etc, I tweak the system and in the other hand im using a DARKLITE EDITION WIN XP. and changing the shaders, of the game, etc, etc. and using speed gear to make the game run faster. Temperature reach 65 degree, with all the coolers

Why dont you use a CPUID hardware monitor, you can download it for free but its trial, or crack for full version. its a software in which you could monitor or see the specific heat produce by your laptop, like CPU, GPU, airflow etc, and reflect it to the normal heat produce by your laptop, you can google it, look for the normal heat/temperature produce by your CPU and GPU. Ex AMD it can reach higher temp than Intel. Just try it, it help me a lot, monitoring my laptop temperature and avoiding overheating . You can also use some coolers for it, i use 3 fan coolers plus 1 electric fan haha!

it may be necessary to open it up and clean out the exhaust and any other place prone to dust. i did this with a laptop my grandparents owned, and i removed dust with the density of the kind of lint found in washing machines.

Get a can of compressed air and blow out the heat sink. Just did this to my laptop the other day, and it got a decent amount of dust out.

Try putting icepacks under the fan pad it should drop your cpu temp a few degrees. I used this method to play Crysis for hours at a time on my laptop.
