Try blowing it through with a can of compressed air, you know the stuff they sell in pc shops.

At the end of the day, you can't expect great performance from a laptop. If it shuts itself down, though, then remove the overclock immediately, you're risking damaging critical components. With a laptop this rings truer than ever, especially with their highly compact architecture.

If you want decent performance, either get a high-performance laptop (Expensive), or just get a proper PC. You can't beat properly cooled, non-integrated systems for gaming.

I would say thats your problem right there, i would never try to overclock something in a laptop, they can get hot enough as it is.

Set your card back to the defaults speeds and see if you still have a problem.

Yes, yes, this is all correct.

Two things are happening:

1- The laptop is getting too hot, and when the internal temperature is gets high enough, the laptop shuts itself down to prevent itself from being damaged.

2- It's likely that the power supply unit (does a laptop even have one?), or whatever provides the power for the laptop, is having to much current demanded demaned from it, and shuts down your laptop. The extra RAM, and the overclock are too much for it.

Laptops use internal circuitboards to regulate power from the external transformer (the brick) or from the battery. I'd point the finger at simple overheating though.
