Got the laptop back today, so far so good but I haven't done any real tests yet. The motherboard was replaced apparentely. Thanks again for all your help, hopefully it'll last a little longer this time. :D

Seems to be fixed. Should I update my drivers? I'm not sure if any of them offer performance updates, as that's all I'd really need.

Only update your drivers through the manufacturers website.
Check the manufacturer of the laptop's website and see if there is any updates specific for that make and model.
Do not use any 3rd driver finding software as these will in most cases lead to some serious problems.

Ok, I'll stick to the drivers from the manufacturer for now. Looking at the temps when gaming it seems to max out at 78C core temp under heavy load, at what temps should I start to worry? (I know before, I could hit 85C with no problems. It's mainly the CPU, GPU doesn't go much higher than 60C)

Sounds like its right where it should be from the posted temps you gave.

It's mainly the CPU, GPU doesn't go much higher than 60C

That is it? Actually if that is maxed out under a load you are doing great.
