for what does AA or AF stand for?


go here for the lowdown

each game has a section to set AA and AF...you can set them to the max or off or somewhere in between depending how your system handles it...set to high will get you low frame rates and possible system /card crashing...
set to off gets you higher frame rates but with jaggies but is much less work for the card and the system in general...

did you blow out the other 6 vents using compressed air...

OK...same word but different meanings in different countries...
if the laptop handled the game ok in the past I would suspect there is still a buildup of dust inside blocking or reducing the air flow by the graphic card/chip...the only fix for that is a complete disassembly of the computer with a detailed cleaning...

the only thing left to do is check in the bios for a fan setting or in the power option in the control panel and get that fan speed increased to at least 70%

ive never played on my laptop, ive played it always on my desktop (pc).. few weeks ago my pc's gpu got burned up i think :DDD

thats why ive installed the game on laptop and tried to play it on here. ive allready went to bios and the only fan setting there is to able or disable the fan. ive also cleaned every peace but maybe not enough.. as u say. the only thing i can see in power option is to set the fan active or passive

try setting the game to a lower resolution with AA and AF off...the lowest quality you can go
nojoy...
then I'm afraid that laptop can't handle the game

nope...increasing the voltage = overclocking...and doing that would increase the heat and make your system more unstable than it is now
