Is your laptop overheating?

No I will just be playing and then start to use flames and the game will freeze

Have you tried the usual solutions? Verifying game cache, removing mods, etc?

That is what I am doing now

is your harddrive write caching , how big is your pagefile? that will do that .so will having your graphic settings a little too high (you run out of vidmem 0 as it makes room for new data you can get a freeze,
oh if it happens when you use flames then i bet your gpu is running out of steam , what gpu do you have ? and what settings ? you really should list your system specs and what you have the game running at. other wise its just a crap shoot. sure lots of folkes will tell you a bunch of stuff that you need to do , but how can they know ? there not infront of your machine , they dont know whats installed on your box ,heck, it could be a mod thats doing it , could be your chat program ,itunes ,bla ,bla ,bla , with out info you really cant get good help

ok , and what mods? a 6770m gpu isnt all that great , pretty entry level ,so that may be your trouble, what do you have running whilest you try to game , this wiilll affect big time

I have Windows 8 x64 and haven't had any issues, but I had Win8 before I started using Steam. Maybe try removing Steam and Skyrim and reinstalling.
