ATI mobility radeon x1600. My problem is that whenever I play a game, usually Counter-strike 1.6, it will overheat and turn off in like 5-10 minutes. I am assuming this is an overheating problem because it is not very hot when I am net-surfing, and the minute I turn on CS, it starts boiling. I do have an external fan under it, but I am pretty sure it is of no use. The fan seems like a popsicle in a sauna basically.
If you google "acer aspire 5672 overheat," it is not exactly an uncommon problem. From what I read from google, Acer uses cheap thermal paste but I'm not exactly very good with computers, so I have no idea what I would be doing if I were to manually apply new thermal paste. Don't even know what that is actually.
Anyways, the warranty expires very soon, so I do not know what to do. I would send it in, but they would probably take like a month to get it back to me, and besides that, there's a good chance they will wipe out my hard drive. But it seems I have no other choice, please help. Thanks.
