Alright guys, I need some help with something. I currently game on an Alienware m17x laptop. I have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4870 in the laptop for my graphics card. I had some problems with one before where it would overheat and my computer would shut down, I am guessing it did this as a safeguard. Well, I got a new one, and normal games like WoW or The Old Republic work fine on it... but when it comes to something like Skyrim, my computer will shut down after about 10 minutes of play time. I assume this is because of overheating. I have a cooling pad under my laptop and I have a box fan sitting behind the laptop blowing cold air straight into the vents. I added the box fan today when I became frustrated with it crashing repeatedly. I am in a room that is regular temperature, not too hot or too cold, but it still crashes. Is there a way I could make it where my graphics card would not run as hard as it does to reduce the amount of heat it produces? Any advice would be great.
