Hi all. I just got my laptop back from HP with a free repair and a 90 day warranty :P

However, I've been running RTHDRIBL and GPU-Z and the highest it got up to after about 2+ hours was 92 degrees celsius.

Fans run like crazy and the laptop doesn't feel very hot where the GPU is located, but is 92C a little high?

Also, (this might be unrelated) I've been playing Battlefield 2 on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, and every now and then my screen goes completely black and the system doesn't respond at all, even the caps lock or the num lock lights don't change when I press them. Seems like my PC is crashing?

IMO, 92C is too high. I'd probably just turn if off cause it's a fire hazard. Well...I stopped the rthdribl test after it went past 83....
Different threshold for different folks I guess...but I'm using water's boiling point as a 'spontaneous combustion point'.

The screen going black and the machine not responding is an issue with the graphics card heating up too hot and potentially disconnecting, in my opinion. Basically a hardware lock-up. I'm surprised it hasn't failed completely. If I were you, I'd keep playing it (but put it on top of a cookie sheet or something, in case it catches on fire). HP should start adopting this advice too. "Please, put your notebooks on top of a cookie sheet or other fire-safe apparatus, as to provide a work-around for your laptop potentially catching on fire. We'd prefer that you don't get injured by a fire (so we don't have to pay for it, but will tell you that you didn't take care of your computer and that it's your fault)."
