  1. This is caused by an antivirus and a fragmented disc 99% of the time.Turn off your anti virus completely and most importantly defrag your hard drive and see if the problem goes
  2. If that doesn't work, download latest drivers and make sure when you play, the ventilation openings on the bottom of the laptop aren't covered. ( maybe when it's on your lap or something ) ( i made that mistake once and it got really hot and shut down )
