make power plan to "High settings" and disable AntiVirus or anything that could use the Laptop's resources


FFXII is one of the easiest games to emulate ....

and do you have an discrete GPU or you're using INTEL HD3000 ?

Hmm you do press esc/suspend the game when you're changing GSdx to see a speed increase yeah? If soo, your problem is most likely overheating;]. Buy a cooling pad or at least aim some fan onto your laptop while playing.

Also change GSdx renderer from DX9 to DX11;], it's much faster(about twice in FFXII) meaning less load on your gpu and that also results in less heat which surely will positively increase the time before your laptop overheats.
You could probably also turn off MTvu, and I don't say that only couse your cpu is limited to 2 cores, MTvu always gives bigger cpu load than eventual speed gain you should easily see that EE+VU is always bigger than EE with VU included when this speedhack is disabled and soo enabling it generates additional heat, your cpu probably doesn't really need it anyway as i7 should be fast enough for this game on such clocks with other speedhacks.

use the program Coretemp to know the current temp of your CPU run it at using PCSX2 and tell us

i pause the game when changing but it automatically resets the emulator back to where i left off
ill change to dx11 and turn off mtvu and see how it does ^^

what GPU you got Huh ( GPU = Graphic card )

and i mean this by power plan ( click to enlarge ) :

downloaded and using while playing the game with the slightly new settings of dx11 and mtvu off
goes up to 95 degrees c

according to device manager my display adapters which i am pretty sure are the same thing as gpu (correct me if im rong, its where the net told me to go to check my gpu)
-intel® hd graphics family
-nvidia geforce gt 555m
