Hello, so recently i have tryed playing a few games that barely run on my low end laptop, i had a really bad computer a few years ago and i tryed playing game that did not go well on my pc (had about 5-10 fps) but i continued playing as my computer started heating up. I ignored that and continued, after a few days a few computer specialist's told me that one of my pc parts have been burned out and needed to order a new one. My question is, can games that do not fit on your computer actualy ruin your computer? I have a laptop right now and im playing games that go about 10-15 fps but im afraid playing them because i was told that repairing burned out parts on a laptop wont be possible.
Games that hurt your computer.

As long as those game are not causing overheating then you may play them.
The only problem here was that you "ignored" the overheating condition. Don't ignore it any longer. If it over heats again don't play the game.

To add to what Joe has said,
Games on their own cannot damage hardware but continually using a computer that is overheating will, overheating notebooks are often caused by inadequate airflow and ventilation so be sure to always use the notebook on a flat and even surface and not on soft surfaces such as quilts, cushions or the lap.
To make sure that you don't try playing games that your computer cannot handle, use Can You Run It first to make sure you have the required spec.

I think the game could cause the system error which led the appropriate heating of detailes..Can this be? I`m asking because I`ve had such story few years ago and my computer wasn`t old for that game and the motherboard burned..

I don't believe games can hurt your computer. Maybe games that has virus within after you download. Actually what hurt's your computer is the overheating and the continuous use of it. It's abused to the computer using it continuously without rest. And one more thing that hurts your computer is, If you not properly shut it down.
