If you have the skills to do it you'll need to access the fan(s) and clean out all the dust and dirt that has collected in them. I acquired a compal notebook that kept shutting down because of heat. visually it looked fine in the fan area. it wasn't till i removed the fan covers that i found about a half inch of dust and cat hair next to the heat sink... once that was removed it barely heats up.
I have noticed that some laptop fans don't come on till close to meltdown. My dell laptop was like that. sometimes the only solution is to get a laptop cooler pad to sit the laptop on.

I have a packard bell easynote m10 notebook that when I play any 3d game the graphics become distorted after a few minutes of game play. I have download all driver updates and other updates from the...


M10 was a codename for the Radeon 9600, so you're good with that.

If everything worked right before, and you're getting artifacts, andyou have the latest drivers, and the game worked fine before, then thatdoesn't leave too much that I can think of. Typically, artifactshappen due to overheating/hardware issues. I used to get artifacts onan old dell of mine when I was playing around with overclocking my card.

You should check your machine to see if the fans/interior have built updust, especially since it's a few years old, and see if your fan is working properly. Try to keep your machinecool, and adjust graphics settings for performance over quality.

I was looking to see if Omega Drivers (http://www.omegadrivers.net/) would be compatible with your machine, and see if that would help, but I just can't be sure, as laptops are more finicky about unfamiliar drivers. It sounds like you're doing everything else right, but even the hardware can show it's age sometimes.

If it is XP, you should just click on the Camera icon in Control Panel. If Vista you have to install an application. Try MSN Messenger and connect to a friend with video link or google picasa.
