I have an HP Pavilion DV2700 with an AMD Turion 64 X2 2Ghz processor and 4GB of memory but a measly 64MB nVidia mcp67m video card. despite that, i still game quite a bit, but when i'm gaming and too much heat apparently builds up inside, my computer suddenly slows down everything, bringing a game that, for example runs normally at 40 fps down to 11 fps or so. I know it's to prevent overheating. I know a few other people who experience that while gaming too, and they, like me, haven't the slightest idea what that feature is or how to disable it. I have a feeling it has to do with my AMD turion. Can anyone enlighten me what this is specifically, and if safe, how to disable it? Is it even possible?

When the integrated graphics over heats it will slow like this.

Have you tried blowing the notebook with canned air?

Is the notebook on a flat surface where it will get proper ventilation?

You could try a laptop cooler.

Why would someone attempt to disable a feature designed to keep the CPU from cooking itself?
