Laptop randomly turns off during gaming

This happened to me on a Toshiba but most manufacturers have the same problem.

The biggest chance of the cause of this is that your laptop is over heating. Hints to show that it was caused by overheating and not a virus or what not are:

1. It doesn't occur until I've booted up for a while

1. It mainly occurs when gaming

2. I can not turn on the laptop again until after a good 5-10 minutes.

2. The laptop feels very hot around the fan and air vents area

If 1. doesn't occur to you, you either have very bad overheating problems OR it is not related to over heating. If you have 2. then your chances are higher.

If you have overheating problems see online guides as to how to clean you fans out of dust and heatsink out of dust. Search for my previous post as well and download the software for monitoring hardware temperatures.
