Hey, My laptop keeps overheating and shutting off when I'm on video chat for a while or playing a game like say world of warcraft, this has been going on for a while but didn't happen at all in my first few months of owning this laptop... in fact the problem may not have started until a year after I bought it and started using it. It's a Gateway nv5370h and it's my main computer, I'd appreciate any advice or ideas you could give me very much, thanks.

Continuing to use the laptop can lead to permanent damage, usually ruining the motherboard. I've replaced two motherboards for people this year from that cause.

In those cases the heat pipe from the CPU to the heat sink was not working. Either the heat pipe failed or it was defective from new. Hard to say.

In your case it sounds like the heatsink is clogged. I attached a picture of what I've seen in some laptops. THis problem often manifests in the summertime as air temperatures are higher.

That is a very common problem with laptops, the heatsink getting clogged up.
