Default laptop overheating

my laptop overheats and it shuts down in the middle of games when it produces the most heat. I really need help in trying to cool this computer down. Right now, whenever i play games, it just sits on a pack of ice which will get be about an hour of gaming max. If anyone knows how to cool down laptops please help cause im pretty sure they dont make liquid cooling for these things.

You can get a laptop cooler, it is a tray it sits on with fan underneath. Check and make sure the fans are working too, I know one of mine on my laptop isn't working and causes it to overheat

yea the fans work for a certain amount of time then they overheat and shut off so i get no fan action which kinda creates a chain reaction to everything else shutting off

my laptop had that problem as well. i bought a usb powered laptop fan that my comp sits on top of- fixed that problem, and keeps it nice and cool. This one, to be exact: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1074788100200

you could probably find it somewhere cheaper, but it works great.
