  1. My laptop is shutting down when i attempt to play any kind of game, even one as simple as runescape. I brought it in to be professionaly cleaned and when i recieved it, the problem remained. Speed fan records the temperatures getting into the 80cel before this happens tho. I've even tried putting it on a big square fan but it does not help..... it worked fine for months before this started happening, could it be the memory? the motherboard? please any help would be very apperciated, thank you.

    You might need to have the CPU thermal paste replaced by a laptop tech
