another computer problem...  
so tortuousphoenix was an absolute star last weekend and helped fix up the malfunctioning laptop and it's all shiny and wonderful... except...

whenever they play a game that involves Flash it runs for a few minutes and then the whole system just switches of. No BSoD, no warning, just kaput.

Any ideas anyone?

Has it been dusted on the inside? That sounds to me like an overheating issues - games take a lot more power than normal functions.

If you have access to compressed air, blast it in at the cooling fan.
