    Most of the time if you have some sort of internal error (software/driver error) your going to notice its effects within the first few minutes of game play.

    Being that you can play an hour then have a crash leads me to beleive that somthing is getting way to hot and causing the crash...

    Most laptops, even one gaming specific dont have the cooling they need for long runs of game play.

    I would reccomend checking out the info from the prior post and monitoring your temps. Before and right before a crash ( you say it happens ever hour of gaming) try taking a reading at lets say 45 minutes.

    Post the before and after results here and we can help disect them for you.

    If heat does turn out to be the bad guy, you can get a laptop cooling pad for not a lot of money which may help you a ton.
