Can you give me an Everest Report; click on Everest Instructions in my sig, and follow the directions to post a log.

Also download SpeedFan from here: http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php
When you are through 2 or 3 games in WOW, Alt+Tab out of the game and open up SpeedFan. Then list the voltages on the bottom and the temps on the right.

My mistake... I meant Warcraft.

A couple of the temps reported by Speedfan indicate that the computer is getting hot. Pop open the case and be ready with a can of compressed air and some cloth. Wipe off all the dust you see and use the compressed air in the hard to reach areas. DO NOT use a vacuum as this may cause ESD, which can destroy your computer. Also to prevent from discharging static onto computer components, hold a non-painted metal surface of your computer's case with one hand and use the other one to clean.

A couple of other things to do would be to upgrade to SP3 and to get all the latest Windows Updates.
Also might want to upgrade your integrated graphics drivers: http://downloadcente...?ProductID=2301 (What are the minimum requirements and recommended ones for Warcraft?)

Might want to look here: http://www.intel.com...b/cs-010486.htm
Here is the game compatibility list for your chip: http://www.intel.com...b/CS-021400.htm

Pop open the case

This is laptop here :)
Laptops are not really designed for gaming.
I'm not a gamer, but I believe WOW is pretty demanding game.

:) Thanks Broni for the correction. Those temps look very hot though, but forget trying to clean inside the case. Try the other suggestions in my previous post.

Warcraft isn't that demanding.

Even the integrated graphics are more than enough to run it.

I agree with Broni about Laptops just are not made for gaming per say. With that follow the next instructions to give us a little more insight into your system.

Download Autoruns from the link in my signature below:

1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
7: Attach to your next reply.


Download, install, and run Whats Running.
Click on Take Snapshot in the left pane.
New pop-up window will open.
Click on Save Snapshot and save the file as Snap (.xml extension will be added automatically)
Save to the Desktop.
Zip the file, and attach it to your next reply.

Along with the files rshaffer wanted, give me an Everest Sensor Report. After 2 games of Warcraft, Alt+Tab out of the game and launch Everest.
Then go Report -> Report Wizard -> Custom -> Uncheck everything except Sensor (under computer) -> Plain Text-> Post everything above the Debug - PCI line.
