I keep getting OpenGL errors when running minecraft and other graphics intensive programs such as Photoshop or Premiere.
The errors say things like:
The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver due to exceeding the Windows Time-Out limit and is unable to continue.
There is another one as well that doesnt say anything about Windows Time-Out limit too.

I am running:
Intel Core i7-2630QM 2.00 GHz
6GB DDR3 Ram
Corsair 240GB SSD
Integrated Intel Graphics Card
Dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT525M 1GB VRam
Nvidia Graphics Driver: 295.73

I haven't really had a problem in the past with the video card doing this, what is happening with it?

Is it overheating?
Is it getting sufficient power?

Make/model brand of your PSU?
Temp at 100% load?

Didn't see the Ms.

In that case, it's probably overheating. Clean the fins by the fan of dust and get a cooling pad. Laptops are not meant for gaming.

I do have a pad that it sits on, its not a cooling pad though, I'll try cleaning it out though and see how it goes

Thanks guys
