Oops, that is my other computer. This laptop is only about 2 years old. It has 4g RAM, 1.9 GHz processor. I think it is not really a gaming laptop, more of a "entertainment" one. But I am only playing browser games, not memory intensive game.The computer in your profile is a desktop, and most people "game" on desktops so that's probably why it was assumed you're using a desktop. Obviously you can't open the "case" on a laptop and still run it, so you can disregard that suggestion.
It could certainly be overheating. If it completely powers off only when using processor / graphics intensive applications, I'd say that's what's happening. How old is the laptop? Have you tried blowing out the fans with compressed air? Does it have sufficient horsepower (processor / graphics) to play the games you're attempting to play? Is it a gaming laptop?
There aren't many options for additional cooling with a laptop. You could try a cooling mat. If the laptop is outdated and/or the games are new and demanding, you need a more capable system.
