That is strange. I don't think it's your video card overheating. Try rebooting the thing.

To turn off hibernate, go to control panel > power options > hibernate tab > uncheck the enable hibernate box.

Rebooting usually fixes minor errors like that.

its not massive. the parts are 50mb each... that is if your downloading what i think you are
i always hibernate my laptop and its on for 12 hours a day sometimes and its fine. could be a random error. a restart is best. if you continue to get problems then id worry.
edit: the warez forum was nothing to do with me
