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
Re: toshiba satellite p105-29722 overheating/vid car
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.

It is obvious that your computer shutdown because it is overheating. try to get a chill mat to place it under computer. you said that it does not shut down when is on battery??? do you play games when is on battery?....computers normally overheat during large processing tasks such us playing video games. Try to fans clear do not place your laptop ontop of your bed or anything that will obstruct the fan under computer.
Make sure that there is good air flow all around the laptop, including the bottom. By resting it in your lap, you may be constricting the air flow. This is one of the reasons why laptops are now called notebooks! They really don't work well on your lap. When I use my notebook, I make sure that the fans have a clear path so that I don't have this problem. Try that and see if it works. You could also use a notebook cooler. They run about 20.00, depending on the type and size.
Usually what gives these types of sighns is that the laptop is overheating.
It hasn't cooled down yet and that's why it will continue to reboot a couple of times it's a safety catch so you don't fry anything within the laptop.
A couple things you can do put it down on a hard surface when in use do not cover the bottom vents that let's the computer breath and cool down.
Also they sell in many stores you will see laptop coolers.
They are flat and light which you put your laptop on there's fans on the bottom that blow up at the bottom of the laptop to keep it cool
I use one it let's the laptops life last longer plus it don't burn the legs or heat up the legs while on the laptop.
have you done a maintainance on it to get rid of all the excess information?? if not..go to start--then all programs, then accessories, then tools, click on disk cleanup. click on yes to all when the pop up box show up.
after this do a defragmentation-- go to start, all programs, then accessories, then tools, then disk defragmenter. click on analisys-- this will tell you if you need to defrag your system. if yes-- do it..it will take time to defrag, but it will speed up you game play ability.
