I got a r710 samsung laptop and whenever i play a game it tends to get so hot that it shuts itself down.

specs:

win vista, 32 bit SP1
intel core 2 quad q9000 @ 2ghz
4 gig ram
gfx card: nvidia geforce gt 130m

errr if you need any other info just ask...

i'd really like this solved... i already updated the driver but that didn't help... happens on multiple games (tested to be sure) and searched around on the internet but so far haven't been able to solve it.

when you are using it, what kind of environment are you using it in, hot, dry, on your lap, table, etc? and do you know if said laptop has fans, and if so, are they working, and is it 90 degrees F. or 90 C. 90 F is no problem, in fact thats rather cool, 90 C however, thats a problem.

table, with a cooling pad underneath it and its on at all times... and it does have a fan... and they're working. and it's 90 C so yes it's a problem... it's been like this from the start though :/

well, can I ask a silly question, if its been like this from the start, why didn't you contact the manufacturer and make use of the warranty? by any chance is it still under warranty? Right now, The best advice I can think if is dissasmbling it-which is a pain in the rear if your an experienced computer tech, removing the CPU heatsink, cleaning off the old Thermal interface fluid, and re-applying it. It really is a lot of work though.

And I would have to supplement this cooler for that laptop.

because it's basically just a laptop to work on but more and more it became a laptop to game on to.

maybe if i can get my other pc fixed i could stop gaming on this one. which would solve the heat problems to i guess.

no longer under warranty. 3 months to late.

+ that cooler makes mine look bad (to bad there's not a shop in my country. there's one in a neighbouring one but i don't want to drive that far.
