Watch the temperature. Laptops do not have the best cooling schemes. I have one Using Prime95, running anything other than small ECM's, it gets really warm. I use the "Throttle=x" setting in prime.txt to control it. Example: Throttle=85 means run 85% and rest 15%. It helps. Prime95 really works a CPU.
