Computer crashes while playing games, help?

My computer, a laptop, crashes every time I play a game. The times into gameplay are inconsistent, however it does it for both high-end games like skyrim and fallout as well as lower end games that should run fine. I know I'm not running the *best* of hardware for gaming, but it's worked before, now it isn't.

Specs:
Inspiron 5559
OS: Win 10 Home, 64-bit (version 1607, build 14393.447)
Processor: Intel Core i7-6500U CPU @ 2.50 GHz 2.60 GHz
RAM: 16 GB
GPU: AMD Radeon R5 M335 4GB
Processor graphics: Intel HD graphics 520
Hard Drive: 453 GB used of 931 GB

It shuts off by simply going black and turning off. (note: when I power it up, the monitor usually doesn't turn on, however when a tv is plugged into the HDMI port, the display will show up on the tv) I have been trying different driver updates for a while now, trying to fix it, and I've come across some stuff about Dell drivers being adjusted a bit from the regular drivers, so I was using driver updates through Dell whenever possible.
