I recently decided to download MS flight after a friend told me about it. After I played it the first time though, the laptop shut off quickly after about ten minutes of playing. Since then, the laptop has gotten to the point where even the simplest games give it trouble after about 1-3 minutes. This did not happen until recently, and the computer shuts off without warning and the screen turns black instantly. I decided to run Minecraft with GPU-Z open, but the GPU temperature only reached about 60 degrees celsius before it shut down again.
To reiterate, I have tried everything from putting it on a cooling pad, making sure it was on a flat, cool surface, and that the temps weren't too high. IT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN PLAYING GAMES.
The specs of my laptop are as follows:
Core i7 2630QM @2.00Ghz, turbo @2.9Ghz,
6GB ddr3 RAM
1GB GT-525m nvidia graphics card
windows 7 home premium x64
500GB WD5000Bevs scorpio black HDD @7200rpm
