Notebook Cooling... Please Help with a Question.

By blood_clot

  1. I have a DELL Inspiron 9100 Laptop, with Radeon 9700 graphics card, I have the operating system Windows XP, I play games alot, hence college, and after about 1-2 hours the frame rate begins to skip and the 'fast computer' sucks.

    The following games I'm having the most trouble with:

    Gunz Online
    StarWars Battlefront II
    Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth

    I can play StarCraft fine whenever I want to, but the other games the frame rate begins to screw up. Some people said that my graphics card is heating up too much, I have a power adapter by DELL, for 150W-AC Adapter.

    Would this be a suitable notebook cooler for my problem?
    Cooler
    And would increasing the 150W power supply help at all?

    That would probably be suitable.

    Also, notebooks aren't well fit for gaming.
