    I'm having a problem where my laptop is now starting to freeze on me during certain activities, but will go back to normal after a few minutes; I've noticed that blowing in the vents will bring it back sooner. The temperature logs of my imbedded GPU always shows 62c as the last read temp before crashing. As for when it crashes from what I can tell it will do it occasionally on Youtube and also has done it when playing multiplayer Age of Mythology (AoM); the part about AoM that gets me is that it only seems to do it when I'm doing a LAN connection (via wireless) to join her game, not when I'm playing alone. After one instance I quickly turned off the computer and opened the bottom to check it out, I noticed that the heat sync was not even warm. What would be the best way to fix this issue? I'm thinking of putting on some new thermal paste, but not sure that would solve anything. Thanks!
