    Everytime I stream movies on netflix or play one of my games like the Sims 3 my laptop completely shuts down without any warning. I thought it was overheating but it does it even if I have just turned it on from being off all night. So Im not understanding why it keeps doing this. Ive upgraded all of my software so whats the deal?!?!

    You may not think so, but that does sound like overheating, does it shut down immediately after streaming a movie or running a game or is there a short time lapse before it happens? Do you hear the fan/s speeding up just before it shuts down?

    Sounds like your computer is physically damaged, the processor could have heated up too much and now cannot process the requested load you are putting on it. You might need to have this tested in person by a tech.

    I hope this helps.
