I saw a few threads on this forum about random video card shutdowns, but I didn't find them very useful.

I've got a http://www.notebookcheck.net/MSI-GX623.18059.0.html laptop, and my video card is giving me some trouble. When I bought this laptop about 2-3 years ago I wasn't experiencing this problem (I was also using an older driver version), but recently my video card started shutting down way too often and a bit random. It happens mostly when I play games (League of Legends to be precise), but I've experienced shutdowns when trying to get a fullscreen video on youtube while VLC player is still running.

Most of the answers to this problem that I read about here, were that the power supply isn't good enough, but if so, how come my card worked good up until now?

Power supply problems usually apply to desktops
with under powered power supplies.
Laptops usually ship with adequate power supplies
for the hardware that is installed.
It sounds like you may be having overheating problems.
Dust builds up inside laptops over time and can block
the airflow through the laptop.
You may want to take it in for service and have it cleaned.
