Possible heat issue. Double check the air flow of your computer. Check temps while idle and while gaming before you shutdown. I use Realtemp for cpu and evga precision which is only for nvidia cards. Make sure your fans are spinning and nothing is clogged with dust.

Heating/PSU is what I would say.

Yeah because its a laptop with a lower end discrete graphics card, its probably just overheating issue stemming from the gpu. I would really suggest following proxy's idea. if not that, try playing these games on lower resolution/lower detail. that might help alleviate this problem some too

Sorry about the delay, I have found my way back to Toms Forums again! lol


If you are still experiencing issues again here are a few things to try...

1. Update all your drivers, sometimes they can be the root cause. (go to manufacture's website to do so, do not use Windows Update)
2. Make sure your memory timings are set correctly.
3. Make sure your voltages are set correctly.
4. Try just letting your PC set still for the same amount of time, does it still do the same thing?

Report back with your findings. Sorry about the slow and long response.
