    hello everyone, hope this is the right place to post this. if not, i apologise.

    i am having some seriously annoying problem with my laptop i can't seem to figure out the cause of.
    every certain set of minutes... in between 5 and 10 my laptop slows down tremendously. i don't know if this only occurs when i'm playing games or not, but i notice it heavily when in a game. my frame rates drop from say 40 to 12-15, heavy stuttering occurs and speakers start making very weird "scraping" sounds.

    could anyone please help?

    regards

    on the contrary, it is probably less warm than it used to be... it is usually hottest top left of the keyboard, where the power cord is plugged in. but no, it is not hot at all.
