ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics and CS 1.6

Hi,Ive had my HP laptop for a little over a year now and before now have not had any problems playing Counterstrike 1.6.I used to be able to play fairly well with 40-70 FPS. Recently my FPS has been tanking to 4-20FPS!Ive went so far as to reboot my entire computer with no better result.Ive noticed that my computer generates alot of noise(Overheating?) When this occurs.
If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated. If you know CS 1.6 then you know it doesnt take much to run it so i want to know why this problem has started...and persisted even after a reboot
My graphics card is the ATI Radeon HD 3200
And this is my Laptop: http://www.amazon.com/Pavilion-DV4-1220US-14-1-Inch-Processor-Premium/dp/B001NPDKWG

  1. Does the game start with low FPS or does it go into low FPS as you play longer?

    It usually starts out fine, then 5-10 minutes into the game the problems begins.
  3. I know nothing about gauging laptop temperatures, but google "Hard-Ware Monitor" and download and run it. See if you can post temps.
