Could be, but your problem is cooling the notebook when it is running at maximum resources.

try getting a fan cooler or any cooling agent to cool your notebook. The VAIO is as tough as it could be but its system shuts the unit down to prevent more damage.

What makes my phone screen go black and go back to lock screen every time I tried to do anything such as message, make a call, or get online?


Sounds like a virus type of thing. If your son downloaded a game you need to uninstall that game and then you need to run a virus type scan to remove any thing that is left behind from that game.

Alienware laptop likes to shut off in the middle of games


my educated guess is that is the video controller acting up. via playing games you may be pushing your display to unstable extremes. if your game supported by the hardware you have?

can you tune down the resolution? test and see what happens?

make sure you have the correct drivers. see manufacturer's page for update drivers for vista (which should work in win7)

have you tried running the game app in say winxp mode, more info found here

the clicking may be an indications of a failing hd. see on your computers documentation or bios if there's a way to test your hd, or simply download an application called speedfan that can give you an idea of your hd performance.. I would still do a back up as soon as possible as you never know when a hd decides to fail on you, (speedfan in itself is pretty safe so it won't damage your hd or anything).

HELP!! my computer screen keeps going black when i play games :(


There is probably something wrong with the card. You updated the drivers
after the problem ,,right.

You have 3GB ram so that is ok. Your cpu and video card are just fine,
so the most possible would be the card is failing.

http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/



I have posted a stability test and a benchmark/ stress test for you to check the card, download the one for your OS, xp, vista.

If the card is going, it will act up when you test the card.

Loss of DVI video/black screen


The problem is probably related to it showing the wrong video card. I would see if there is any help for everquest on changing that and if you cannot figure it out I would reinstall the game and that should fix your problem, keep in mind that you may have to uninstall in order to reinstall properly.
