Whenever I play a game like Call of Duty or World of Warcraft for a while my laptop generates excessive heat. At some point I hear a humming noise, like the fan is working extra hard or something. One time my computer shut down from it.
I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1720. Here's my rig:
Manufacturer: Dell Inc.
Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T7100 @ 1.80GHz (2 CPUs), ~1.8GHz
Memory: 2046MB RAM
Hard Drive: 146 GB
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT
Monitor: Generic PnP Monitor
Sound Card: Speakers / Headphones (SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC)
Keyboard: USB Root Hub
Mouse: USB Root Hub
Operating System: Windows Vista™ Home Premium (6.0, Build 6001) Service Pack 1 (6001.vistasp1_gdr.090302-1506)
