Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Make sure it's getting enough air; a lot of laptops have undersized heat sinks on the video hardware and poorly routed airflow. If you get one of those laptop cooling pads with the fans in them that should help, and if you don't mind removing a few panels in the back of the machine you can further improve ventilation. Also, be sure to occasionally blow compressed air into the air openings of the machine to get rid of accumulated dust.

How old is the laptop? It could be that the gfx card is dieing or has died and the onboard card cannot handle the games. If it is still under warranty take it back to the place of purchase and get them to repair it. If it is outside the warranty period and it is the gfx card, the only thing you can really do is buy a new card that your motherboard will support.
