Have you tried cleaning out the vents on the laptop to make sure they are clear for air flow?
How much memory total?

I have a hp Pavilion dv5-1002nr laptop, and I use Vista. I cant play WoW for more than 5 minutes without the graphics card overheating and my screen gets white and black stripes vertically.
That's called artifacts.. The most common cause is either the graphic/northbridge chipset is faulty or indeed overheating.. If you think overheating is the cause, please refer to rshaffer61 suggestion.. You will need a brush to clean them..
You mentioned you use hp Pavilion dv5-1002nr laptop. Is below is the same model with yours?
If yes, then its actually use integrated video.. If still under warranty, just return the motherboard to the vendor and mentioned to them about the problem..
