I7, 8 cores, geforce 420m (notebook series nvidia) crashes on low quality games

I had just recently bought a Sony VAIO laptop and it seems to be crashing on pretty much any game with a .exe that runs off of directx
If anyone wants to help, I can post any information necessary,
appreciate it.

    I can run bf bc 2 at high fine, that game has never crashed.
    I played LoL and it crashes every once in a while I don't understand.
    As well, the sound skips when it starts to crash
  3. I would check temps if you are getting high temps then get a laptop cooler w a good fan on it..
  4. Its probly getting hot oh and look at bottom fan intake as these on laptops get cloged up quickly!!
