Question about X-10 NU SBW242B/SBW242C Slim DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive
My 1 year old HP zd8000 laptop recently started to suddenly shutdown .. ususally when playing games, or trying to do things that require a little more reesources - like burning dvd's. Is this a memory thing?
Clean ur cpu fan, its ventilaion is not occouring properly

If gaming and burning dvd you will need a minimum of 512MB ram, although if you have not got a seperate dedicated graphics card and only have on-board graphics, 512MB can soon be consumed by memory hungry applications. When playing games your notebook will automatically assign a set amount of memory for graphics, leaving little left for running the application. The same can be said for burning dvd's, this takes a lot of processor and memory. But give your fan vents a gentle hoover out and check the notebook is used in a well ventilated area. The processor may simply not be upto the job of gaming, as notebooks, unless as mentioned before about having a seperate graphics card are'nt able to cope as well.
