Don't forget to post temps btw .

Then, like I said, I'd suggest repasting the laptop. If you're not comfortable doing it, you can take it to a repair shop if you want.

If you do it yourself, just go slow and keep track of all the screws you take out and from where (make a diagram if you have to).

You'll also need:
Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)... at least 90%
Coffee filters (they're non-lint, and super cheap for a large pack of them)
Thermal compound (I prefer TX-2 personally: Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound - Newegg.com )

Honestly 6gig is fine... Unless you're actually using up all that space (unlikely).

Well, from tiem to time i get the "Close your videogame because the system is out of memory" , again it seems like the processor is doing all the graphics on the game with the intel integrated video card instead of the nvidea video card.

Make sure you have the most updated drivers from both nVidia's website and Intel's site; it's possible the switchable graphics (Optimus) isn't working correctly.
