    and i installed vista home premium with updates

    and when i play dawn of war

    the game keeps freezing and quitting at random times

    It could be an over heating problem due to insufficient cooling with the Windows drivers. Go to the Nvidia web site and have it analyse your graphic driver. It will offer you a download which you should install. If that doesn't help you may be just asking too much from a mobile system in terms of heat transfer. You can potentially reduce your settings.
