Do you have some sort of temperature monitoring program? If it's overheating, there's not really much you could do, but that'd let you know what the problem is. Post your full specs please.

An easy fix would be to set your laptop ontop of a Box Fan, turn it on high, turn on/reboot, then load the game. that would prove or disprove that theory.
You need to understand, a gig of ram does nothing when it's about to catch fire. Almost any electronical component has twice the efficency when run at cooler temperatures.
I uh, found the problem. Sorry, I'm still bit of a noob when it comes to computers. I'm sick with the shingles right now (some kind of side effect after years of having chicken pox). So I'm lying on my bed with the laptop on a PILLOW. So it can't cool down. Thanx for all your help guys. Thanks, Jebus
Tech is where you'll find me..

Yes, do be careful about putting laptops on soft surfaces. This will cut the ventilation to them, and provide a place that will allow the heat to build up inside the laptop itself.
