I used to play starcraft II with my laptop on medium video setting 60 FPS stably, it is N53SV, asus brand, and => http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/N53SV/#specifications

But after 2-3 years, now i think something is seriously wrong with my laptop, Now i can't play WarCraft 3 on the lowest setting! FPS drops to 15-20 after a minute playing, i brought that to store i bought it, which they couldn't solve it, i installed a GPU monitoring software and noticed the GPS Temp increases to 130-140! after a minute playing warcraft 3 on the lowest... .
I cleaned the entire laptop in and out from dust, and I'm sure the fan is working properly.

So what's the problem? is my laptop dead? if i change my GPU, is it going to be fixed?
Thanks for helping, i need you Tom's Hardware badly!!!

My answer with almost all laptops... the system itself may be free of dust but the thermal paste is still old, so its going to get hot... solution is to open the system and re-paste the CPU and GPU. This is not a guarantee to fix the problem but this sounds exactly like the issue that most well used laptops have.
