Hi,
Laptops are not really designed for heavy gaming like warhammer.
The reason the laptop is getting hot is because all the system resources are being used to power the graphics card so you get a decent gaming experience, the more you work the laptop the hotter it will get.
If you want to do some serious gaming then it's recommended that you get a desktop for that purpose as with a desktop you can change the internal components to suit you.
If you want to carry on using the laptop then it's a good idea to purchase a cooling mat for the laptop to help keep it cool while play your games.
If you carry on playing heavy games as you are then at some point the graphics chip burn out.


Regards.

What you can do is to use a utility which prevents your system to overclock the hardware. These utilities come bundled with the graphics card driver. Explore the graphics properties to check whether you can limit how much resources your system utilizes. Using lower resources result in reduced performance during gaming but will also ensure your system runs cooler.

This laptop is equipped with Nvidia Gforce 8600 graphic chipset.

Average life span of this faulty chipset: 18 months.

Wikiedia says:

On May 10, 2007, NVIDIA announced the availability of their GeForce 8 notebook GPUs through select OEMs. So far the lineup consists of the 8200M, 8400M, 8600M, 8700M and 8800M series chips.[31] It has been announced by nVidia that some of their graphics chips have a higher than expected rate of failure due to overheating when used in particular notebook configurations. Some major laptop manufacturers are making adjustments to fan setting and firmware updates to help delay the occurrence of any potential GPU failure. In late July 2008, Dell released a set of BIOS updates that made the laptop fans spin more frequently.[32] As of mid-August, nVidia is yet to give further details publicly, though it has been heavily rumored that all or most of the 8400 and 8600 cards have this issue.

Me and my wife had 2 of these laptop, both died.

Good luck
