I'm using an Acer Aspire 4730z. It crashes when I play Crazy Machines and other games like .. Gardens of Time on facebook.

more than likely its getting too hot. Try a laptop cooler... a cheap one can be had for ~ 50 bucks. Granted those wont cool as good as the pricier ones but its a starting point.

Does it feel hot? Is the fan blowing?

Have you at least tried blowing out the dust and trying again?

Are the fan vents blocked?

Is it on a flat table like surface, or are you playing it on a bed with nice thick sheets to insulate it really well? Because that's not good.

Yes, it is mounted on a laptop cooler, but maybe I should get a better one. It's really only when I play games. Do games make a laptop heat up? Thanks.

Hi .. yes it does feel hot always, but crashes only when I play the games. I even have another desk fan blowing at it. But thanks, I will check for dust blocking the vents.

It's on a table, and on a laptop cooler. Thanks.
