Laptop shutting down ONLY when playing FM

I know I know, it's probably overheating, need to clean the fan. At the moment I cant get the laptop undone, the screws dont seem to want to come out so I cant get to the fan.

My question is, why does this only happen when I'm playing FM? I have FIFA13 on my laptop as well, it gets plenty hot when I play that, yet it NEVER crashes. Is this maybe a graphics card issue or something?
I'm assuming the large amount of data it needs to process while playing FM is straining the processor as well.
What type of laptop is this?
HP dv5 Notebook PC. It's about 3 years old. Is there a fix for it or is the laptop done-for?
