Sorry you are having troule. It sounds as if it is getting hot and protecting itself. Games are very cpu intensive and this causes heat. The cheap fix is an under cooler. This is a cooler the laptop sits on. I have seen them at Best Buy for under $20
Not much can be done for gaming on laptops, unless you shell out over $2000 for a dedicated gaming laptop.
Ram could be a big issue, depending on how much you have. The screen resolution that you are playing at, the detail levels, and possible network connection speed can all contribute to a laggy game experience.
Try turning off any background services that you do not need when you are playing (ie. skype, iTunes, etc...), perhaps checking your video card to see if you have the latest drivers as well.
looks like you have enough ram and a good video card ... maybe try this http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.html just down load and run this when you play your games... make sure you turn it off when your done playing games
Ensure you are installing the game to your 160 GB HDD instead of an SD card or other location. Also you may want to go to the My Computer icon and ensure you have enough space to install the full game on your C: drive. All else fails reinstall.
Check the requirements printed at the back of each game. this will tell you if the game runs. If some game is slow try disabling the antivirus while you run the game, remember to restart antivirus afterward. Do not use software accelerator, majority of them are useless, some of them carries malaware and viruses.
