    My ACER Aspire 8940G with Geforce GT240M , I7 720QM , is overheating in RISEN in 15 minutes with the lowest specs in medium resolution . It touches temps of 100C and shutting down after one hour and a half.
    It also has problems with flash videos, in fullscreen. It halts, and can only be shut off via the power button.
    It has indicated problems with HD videos. Low performance in 1080p.
    All these happen randomly. I can play RISEN for 4 hours one day with no problem. Then another it heats immediately. The same thing with multimedia applications.
    Other people with same problem

    Solution ? None so far.
    Ill try to read the whole Aspire 8940G Owners lounger and find some clues.
    Though i see that most have the GT250 S card.

    Id greatly appreciate any valid ideas.
