Default Sudden FPS Drop - GT130M

I have had this laptop for a year now and it began doing this about four months ago. When I play CoD MW2 I get good fps for awhile, but after about 30 minutes, my computer suddenly slows way down, and I am stuck with 1-2 fps. Once I manage to maneuver my mouse to the exit to windows button, I continue to have a noticeably slower and choppy performance even just minimizing and maximizing windows. This lasts well after my GPU cools down, and the only thing that fixes it is turning off the computer for about a minute.

I tried installing different graphics drivers, but I figured it was probably a heat issue. I installed speedfan to monitor the temperature and it was getting up to 90 degrees celcius. I bought a laptop cooler and it brought the temperature down about 10 degrees but the problem didn't improve at all, nor does it seem to correlate with the temperature of the graphics card. My card can be at 80 degrees and cause the problem or it can be at 92 and running fine. I have cleaned out the dust and such so I don't see how it could be overheating at this point.

This issue occurs in some games but not others. I have been playing STALKER call of pripyat recently and I can play for hours on high settings with no problem but if I leave it on the loading screen without pressing a key to continue for over 2 minutes it causes the problem and I have to reboot. Anyone have an idea what could be causing this? I also did a memtest but that didnt show any problems.
I have the same computer and owned for just over a year and have this same issue. I was wondering if there was a solution found for the problem? Had to repost issue as i could not private message Michael31191. Have a cooling fan but the problem is quite strange as noted above. Any help is much appreciated!
