Thank you all for your responses,
I really appreciate the efforts you did, to help me out here.

Unfortunately though, my wireless adapter gave up on me 2 days after posting,
so now I'm replying from my old desktop.
I'm just going to bring it in for repairs,
and hope they're able to fix it.
It just sucks my dad got rid of the box some 3 months ago (I told him not to do so...)
I hope I can still use my warranty, but I doubt it.

@ dangi: yes, buying a cooler would be a good idea. Already have one though ^^
Doesn't seem to make it stop lagging.

If it is really slow, and hot as you say. It might be that the system goes into a safe mode that slows the pc down drasticaly, to prevent the various components from heat damage.

So i think that you simply have a few fans that have stopped working. By the sounds of it it is the CPU fan.

Edit:
If you intend to game on it, get a desktop instead of a laptop. Desktops run cooler, are faster, cost allot less, and generaly last way longer.
