Laptop shuts down after ~30 minutes of gaming
My friend's laptop shuts down after around 30 minutes of playing Alien vs Predator 2. We thought it was overheating so we turned down the A/C and even put some ice packs under it but it still kept shutting off. What could be the problem, and what could be a solution? I do not have the specs on hand, but the next time I use the laptop I will install Everest Home Edition and copy down the specs.
My laptop did this every once in a while, but that laptop was pretty old (IBM Thinkpad A31) but I was playing a 10 year old Quake 2 mod.
