i have hp dv6 1215 laptop and it contains ati 4650 discrete card.
initially when i bought it some 3 years ago its gpu core temp raised to 80 to 85 C, but for a year or so the gpu temp is going above the limits and reaching consistantly 110 C and above this is while playing modern games like COD and AC3, and my laptop shuts down within 15 minutes, i don't know what is the problem with this brand of the laptop
anyone technical enough would suggest me any solutions, how can i bring the temp down, should i replace the fan or whatever....
i would be more than glad to know the solution if any exists.

there is no problem with the dust blocking airflow although i have noticed that the air flow from the vents have reduced quiet a bit from when the laptop was new, but i have already checked it by opening it and there was no dust accumulating in it..
i suspect that either thermal pastes are not working or the fan is runnig at slow speed not at rated e.g., 1400 rpm.............
