I got my new laptop less than 1 year ago with Windows Vista. It is a Dell Inspiron 1525 and I know that it isn't exactly for gaming but I thought it should let me play my game anyway. The problem is that it overheats whenever I play Maplestory. After a certain period of time, sometimes even after only 5 minutes, the laptop's screen just turns black like I just held down the power button. It shuts off and I have to let it cool. You can check the game at mapleglobal.com if you need to. I'm sure that I meet all the system requirements.
Here is the system information about the computer.
Under my device manager it says I have the Mobile Intel® 965 Express Chipset Family video card under my display adapters
What should I do to stop this overheating? I already bought several cooling pads but none work. Should I buy a new fan or replace something inside the computer like a video card?
Any help is appreciated!
