Warning for use of 3D Graphics manipulation with notebook computers

After installing Mathematica 6 and programming some group-mechanical 
3D-manipulations the nvidia go graphics chip of my Samsung laptop 
stopped working at the performance of a complex 3d-manipulation. Its 
internal digital lcd-part gave up with a crack noise. The external 
analog VGA is still working.

On the internet,  some hints can be found saying that certain laptop 
computers are in danger to burn their graphics chips because of 
insufficent cooling under high permanent load.
