1. Since I can use the laptop without any problem running Windows, I don't think that'll be the issue. In Windows, I clearly hear the cooling fan(s) spinning up when I put stress on CPU and GPU and they're always able to get it back to normal working temperatures. Furthermore, the laptop has 4Gb of RAM, should be sufficient no?

3. See 2, I don't think that's the main issue.
I need to find out how to adress and correctly controll the cooling fan.
It looks like all Toshiba laptops have overheating problem especially with Debian based distros. A lot of Toshiba lappy owners have reported same problem. Google search listed a few solutions too but none is perfect.
Well then I'll try some Fedora or Suse falvours to see withone works best.

I have a older P775-S7320 Toshiba. I have went through several versions of Fedora and now on Fedora 18. I guess I am lucky because I have never had a heat issue.
