From what you've said previously, I don't think that's the problem at all. If the fans that cool the machine aren't working correctly, THAT is the problem. You obviously cannot run Windows "playing a game" for very long before the processor gets too hot. This would be equally true on any Windows machine.

I was then told my graphic driver was out of date, so i had to look it and and manually update it. I havnt bought anything new because the graphics are integrated so if i ever had to get a new graphic card, i would have to get a new motherboard.
Neither of which is possible, so just forget it.

The only thing you can replace the motherboard on that Mac with is another exactly the same motherboard from an identical model. No upgrade.

My guess is that something is slowly dieing in my computer, because it seems to last shorter and shorter sessions, and im afraid its going to totally dump on me.
You are right. It will.

My computer runs flawlessly though, besides all the graphic problems ive been having. Boots up fast and i very rarely get many errors.
As for that fans, it was about a month after warranty the fan(s) went out and had to buy a fan for it. I don't know if there are two fans or just one (or maybe more) but it seems at first only one was down, and now all of them dont work and no hot air blows out from the vents.
To the best of my knowledge, the fans on the MacBook are custom-made for it and cannot be replaced except by grafting in the identical fans from an identical model. So, again, I'd say this is the source of all your issues.

Another major problem i seem to have is my power cord for my mac. It actually gets so hot that it begins to small, and one time it actually burned my leg because i accidentally brushed against it with my leg.

If at any moment i am wrong with any of this, don't be afraid to explain to me what i did wrong lol. Im not any good at computers, but i do know how to go and google stuff to get answers, so thats what ive been doing so far. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
You SERIOUSLY need to stop mucking about with this thing and either take it in to get properly fixed or replace the machine entirely. From your description I wouldn't have that thing in my house at all, too much of a fire/explosion hazard.
