Hi guys, I have an Acer Aspire 5536 notebook which I bought last year in September. Ever since I've had a problem when playing flash games or watching YouYube videos.

The lag occurs every 40-60 seconds, the audio will continue uninterrupted where as the video will become extremely choppy for 5-10 seconds and then it will return to it's normal state, now this doesn't just apply to flash apps, this also happens when I play Trackmania Nations or any other game.

On another note, my laptop gets extremely hot, I've been using HWmonitor to check the temperatures and my CPU has hit a max of 96 celcius. Currently I'm running Google chrome with 1 tab open and I have Windows Live Messenger running too and both cores of the CPU are reading at 70 celcius. I've read up about this and once it reaches a certain temperature the CPU throttles it's self to prevent further damage, although I'm thankful this happens, it renders my laptop practically unusable.

Has anyone else experienced any of this before and is there anything I can do about it?

Thanks in advance!

There may be some dust blocking the laptop vents causing overheating.
That's my own opinion.

Try to clean it.
