  1. Buy a laptop cooler
  2. put your laptop on a leveled surface such as a table
  3. do not put your laptop on your bed while its on, that causes the laptops vents to block and no air can be sucked in eventually the laptop gets heated and automatically turns off
  4. plz dont forget to vote if i solved your problem :)

Most likely, the vent is not getting enough air (I would know, I'm on a Compaq Presario laptop), I recommend getting 2 books, and placing them under the top corners, that way it can get air and not overheat!

My sony laptop suddenly shut down itself when am playing a game. it shuts with a certain sound


Laptops are very often overheating, so it wouldn't be a surprise if you playing the game makes it even hotter and it just shuts down to protect itself from damage.
You can try using a cooling pad/fan or just make sure the laptop fans can circulate air freely.

Why is my acer aspire 4330 keep shutting down on me for no apparent reason?


If the laptop shuts down after a period and won't boot up again until the laptop has cooled down, then the laptop has a thermal overload problem.

My acer aspire 5738g keeps shutting down when i'm


Sorry you are having troule. It sounds as if it is getting hot and protecting itself. Games are very cpu intensive and this causes heat. The cheap fix is an under cooler. This is a cooler the laptop sits on. I have seen them at Best Buy for under $20

My acer aspire 5738g shutdown while i plaay agame


You either overloaded the processor or the available RAM. Also with these laptops and high end games...it is very easy to overheat them unless they are on a cooling pad with another external fan blowing cool air over them, without it they will shut down due to thermal overload....this is to keep them from melting something. Try checking with the support driver page for your laptop and see if there is a BIOS update that addresses the algorithym for fan speed, then pull the heat sink from the processor, clean everything up and apply a good thermal paste compound, then blow out all the airvents and make sure there are no restrictions.

ACER Aspire 5720 overheat problem?


Try to keep as much ventilation under the laptop as possible.
You can pick up a can of power spray and blow out the unit yourself or have a pro. do it for you.
Dust and lint play a deadly part in overheating with laptops.
Walmart has Ventilation trays in which the laptop sits and is cooled by forced air from underneath.
Make sure the direction of air flow is the same as your laptop.
You dont want to push air into a output vent.
