lol the laptop im on right now gets scalding hot, i see blue screens from time to time and it chops up my gameplay to the point where the game just freezes (by game im talking about maplestory...im not running a very demanding game on this pile of junk).

off the topic of heat if cooling doesnt work for you, i have a desktop system that has similar issues as you describe, the heat may just be normal for the machine if the compound used for the heatsink is old.

I found my system to blue screen, stutter and crash unless i reset my priorities,

i know what caused this on my system, not only does your processor and gfx chips get hot but heat has a major effect on your memory banks too and if like my laptop yours are next to the cpu it could be that.

I changed my speed setting on my pc as i have a clockable board and downclocked my memory speeds to 333mhz from 400mhz that fixed my problems ! if your lucky enough to be able to try this it may fix your issues

Yeah of course, I use a one-piece standard size chess board (like right now), but sometimes I CBA to get it out. On topic, I was just watching a 720p movie streamed to my laptop from my desktop, Matroska container, h.264 codec in GOM Media Player. Temp was stable at around 72-74ºC, and that is in Power Saver mode. And the chess board.

Now that I've finished with the movie and back to surfing a bit before I turn the lights off and go to sleep, it's at 54-56ºC.

Laptops just generally run hot, and I imagine if it has an AMD build laptop It's probably going to run hotter anyways. My PC runs 57 on full load @ 3.0GHZ, and thats still a tad hot. Just for reference.

Yeah my Core0 on my desktop gets to 62-63, rest of the cores don't go over 57 - under full load - but that's as good as it gets with the weather here in Spain, unless I lap it and I really CBA to. It's OCd on stock VID.
