Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 Notebook
When i play games the computer gets so hot it will burn my legs if its in my lap...i tried finding the proper video drivers for it but it seems iits only supported by windows vista...but the laptop came loaded with windows xp. just browsing it seems the fan turns off on the inside... also when it gets hot it seems the machine hiccups and goes from 60fps to 4-7 fps...ive tried different home-made drivers but i cant get it to function properly...thanks
I recently had the same problem. I had just updated the drivers for the Nvidia card and after that the fan stopped working. It would cause the computer to overheat and the screen to shut off. I reverted my computer to just before I updated the drivers and the problem went away. If you recently updated your driver you might have the same problem. I play several graphic intensive games and dont have any issues as long as the fan is working on the video card. It will get pretty warm even with the fan working.

I had the same problem. I sent it back in to Toshiba and they fixed it.
The problem was the fan on my motherboard. I think it had some bad bearings because it would run sometiems and not others; and when you would hear it run; it would do a lot of clicking.
It was overheating the core, and while I was playing games it would just stop processes.
Just call up Toshiba and tell them; they should let you send it into the UPS store for free. It will take about a week or two.
