I never thought of that. If you have anything Over clocked, set them back to their default levels. If you don't know what Over-clocking is, your not doing it so don't worry.

Could it be heat related at all while playing WoW? Like Rudster said, OCing could lead to an overheated CPU while playing your game. Double check all temps anyways, including CPU and GPU.

That's a little warm, but those cards are pretty durable. 9.999 times out of ten, if RAM is bad, it will effect memtest in some way. Normal it will show errors (highlighted in red) but I have seen it shut the computer down and restart it.

If the GPU overheats, you would have performance drops throughout the game and the PC would have shut down, like the CPU.

Seasing up, in meanings that you need to turn off and then turn on the laptop or seise up as in just FPS drops every now and then?
