Hello, i'm currently using a Macbook Pro pre-Santa Rosa. I previously had a Windows XP Home SP2 install on this system but due to a corruption I had to reformat the XP partition. After fighting with that for a bit I installed Windows XP Pro SP2 with the same set of drivers. On my previous setup, I had been able to play Source powered games on Steam and Quake Live without the system exploding. On this new install though, I can't play any games that are source powered with a decent framerate. Then after I installed some system updates (not SP3 though) my computer began to overheat and shutdown when playing games like Quake Live and source engine based games. I thought this may be related to just playing games, but I can run Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst without the system overheating and shutting down. So I assume it could be an issue with first person shooters, or that the system is being overworked by these games somehow. I'm not 100% sure. It won't go through the shutdown procedure, it just turns the computer off completely like someone yanked the cord and took the battery out. What I am sure of however, is that the laptop is running much hotter than it was before. The laptop used to run Firefox open with plenty of tabs, Skype, and Winamp and would hover around 60 degrees. Now it shoots up to 75-80 degrees with the same activity, sometimes it gets up to 90 and thinking about picking up the laptop is unbearable. For fun I held my laptop up to the fan in my room and after 5 minutes (with the system fans forced into 6000 RPMs) the temp dropped to 57, which is much closer to what it should be. But putting the laptop back down shot the laptop straight back up to 80 within a minute. Not quite sure what the issue is here, but i'm afraid my laptop is going to melt my fingers at this rate.
