Computer shuts down while playing! [SOLVED]

Post by annesims3 on Sun 05 Sep 2010, 18:41

It has never happended to me before!!

I don't know why but my computer shuts down instantly (nothing appears, not even blue screen, it simply turns off!) when I'm playing!! Sad

What can I do?!

I'm so angry that my games never get saved! Sad

Yes I can run it and Yes they work fine.

Could it be over heating??

It's a laptop, so I used to have it upon a pillow... yesterday I changed it to a table and I open the window so it could get fresh air and in fact, the computer didn't shut down... Maybe i'll have to clean the fan...

Hi,

Well, that explains a lot. NEVER use a laptop on a pillow or something, as it WILL álways overheat. Laptop fans just can't handle that. I once did that with a laptop and it just shut down and didn't start up for like an hour. (And it wasn't my laptop, so I was like: "Shit, what am I going to tell the owner?") When it cooled down, it started up again.
Yes, it's probably caused by that. Just put it on a desk and try to keep the fans clear, so fresh air can get in. It may get warm, but it won't overheat any more.
