Just bought a desktop with Win 8 pro x64 preinstalled and my issue is my video cards fan will not vary in speed as it should. As you may know, this alone makes the game unplayable since my video cards temp raises to 90 or 95 and the game freezes. OP you say you have a laptop and that could be a different issue altogether but I think not. I'm willing to bet you have the x64 version of win 8. After researching forums all day online, there are many instances of this happening at NVidia, windows, tomshardware.com, etc. I have also tried MSI afterburner, RivaTuner, nTune, EVGA Precison, and nothing seems to allow me to tweak GPU fan settings. The programs physically allow me to create and change fan profiles but the GPU fan itself will not respond to any commands. I assume none of these programs are compatible with Win 8 since it's been less than 4 months since release. Sorry I can't really help out but fortunately, this (gaming with Win 8) is a known issue so hopefully something gets done about it.
