Your answer will tell me a lot.
Whenever I play one of my hidden object games, the laptop will shut down after about 15 min. of play. This laptop is about 2 years old and used daily. Everything else I run such as videos, dvds, cds, spreadsheets, no problem! Just the games...which play just fine on my ASUS Tablet, my HP Pavilion laptop, my HP netbook, and my husband's 5-year-old desktop! They even play on my cellphone, but they drag the battery down! But not on this Acer beast. The 5738g had overheating issues, and Acer posted a 'fix' for it, but Acer tells me that my 5738-6969 has no need for it! I beg to differ.
