    Hi everyone,

    I have a problem with my computer turning itself off after playing a game for like 30 minutes. I'm fairly sure its because the CPU gets to 205F. I ran realtemp to log my cpu temperature and the hottest it gets is 205F but it doesnt shut down for like 10-15 minutes after it gets that hot. It usually shuts down around 195. It does this for all my games, but it never did this in the past. I used to play WOW for hours until recently, now my pc just randomly shuts off. Is it normal to get to 205F? I thought it was maybe a software problem, so I completely re-installed windows 8 from scratch and it is still shutting down. How can I get it to stop shutting down mid game?

    All drivers are up to date.

    Have you cleaned out the fans and vents on the laptop?

    That temp is near the max for that processor and chances are if its getting that hot then your GPU is also running very hot.

    What is the exact model of the laptop you have?

    Temps that high are not normal.

    Because they don't look on the outside doesn't mean there isn't a buildup of dust inside. Using compressed air to blow them all out would be one of the first things to try.
