Hi everyone, this is my first post, so I am sorry if I am posting in the wrong place :( .

I own a g73sw-bst6 with a 2630qm i7 and a gtx 460m.

I have had my laptop for about 8-9 months. About a month or so ago, the keyboard started to get a bit warm on the top right near the power button.

Right now as I type this with only google chrome, and almost no programs running it is idling at 68degrees C. When I play games(like Warcraft 3, Diablo 3, and Starcraft 2) I get up to about 85-89 degrees)

Sometimes, my games crash and the screen starts to flicker and distort(forcing me to restart, I get the "Nvidia driver ### has crashed and has repaired itself" from windows.

I have updated my drivers to the latest version, so the only thing I can think of is that it is heat related.

I just want to confirm that it is a heat issue, is 89degrees Celsius too high?

Thanks :)

What program are you using to monitor your temps? Can you set the program to show teperature to TJMax? If you get within 10C of TJMax, yep, it's a heat issue.
