My Gateway LX6810-01 has a plethora of issues which has lead to my decision to replace it. Since my new machine won't arrive for a few weeks, I'm stuck using this one till it does. I've had issues with overheating and the machine shuts down, in as little as 5-10 minutes of doing anything more graphically challenging than checking my email or writing this post.
I want to disable the auto shutdown feature so I can actually watch an entire movie, or perhaps even play a game. Since I dont really care about damaging the machine with a new one on the way, I just need the most effective way to do this. I've searched through my BIOS settings and haven't found anything relating to overheating, or temperatures. If someone knows of maybe a hidden, or "locked" BIOS feature, or one I'm missing, or even a solution with software, or in Vista, that would be great.
Again, just wanted to say I'm not worried about damage to the machine, I just need it to stop shutting down on me when it gets alittle warm.
