Why does my acer laptop overheat and shut down when I watch movies or play games on it?

For the last couple months everytime I play a game or watch a movie for a short period of time my netbook will get so hot that the it will completely shutdown. I am a certified technician, so I cleaned the heat sync re-flowed the solder and it helped for about a day then it started happening again. If you can be of any help please reply. 

 

 

Thanks

You probably need to replace the thermal module.
