I was playing Starcraft 2 with my roommate a while back and I got a message saying the virtual memory had all been used, or something like that and then it shut off. When I turned it back on it was still in the game and then it just died completely and wouldn't turn back on. I got it fixed at microtech and the guy said the motherboard wasn't getting power. I would like to continue playing the game, but not if it's going to kill my laptop again, what should I do to prevent this. My laptop is a Gateway P-6860FX, here is a pic of the bottom of my laptop: ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting
, what would be the best cooling pad I could get for it? On the picture, the vent right under the battery lock is where it was getting way too hot and then blowing out the vent on the side of the laptop right beside it. I appreciate any input or suggestions on how to solve this, thanks.
