  1. Whenever I play Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare or COD 5: World at War after a while my laptop turns off automatically and my laptops Specs are: 2nd gen. Intel core i3 processor, 500 GB HDD, 4 GB Ram, Nvidia GeForce 610M with 1 GB dedicated VRAM. I have seen the specifications needed to play the game and my laptop's specs are much more higher.
    It happens only with Call of Duty games and all the other games works perfect.
    Please help...Thanks

    Check the laptop profiles for Power vs time vs Battery life

    Your laptop is probably turning off due to overheating. Does it just suddenly and quickly turn off?

    Check the case to see if it is hot. Run a program like SpeedFan or Realtemp to see temps. Post em here.
