Skotock, My guess is that you damaged your processor or some thermal grease (paste-like material that physically bonds your heatsink to your processor) is shorting something. Unplug your power cord, remove the heatsink and processor. Check the processor for surface cracks and bent pins. Make sure NONE of the thermal grease has oozed over the edge of the processor onto either the processor pins or the motherboard itself. This material is both thermally and electrically conductive and can cause shorts. If you don?t find anything let us know and provide us with as much details about exactly what you did and how so that we can continue to troubleshoot. If this did solve your problem please let us know and don?t forget to rate this posting.

My laptop powers on and right back off

Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

My laptop suddenly shut down when playing game.. the fan is clean..i tough it is covered with dust..but thats no it

If the laptop shuts down and won't boot up again until it has cooled down, then the laptop is overheating and causes the CPU to shutdown. If this fault is not fixed then eventually the CPU will fail.
The fan may not be covered with dust, but did you check the heat-sink?
The heat-sink fins maybe clogged with dust.
Check the fan, does it spin freely, if not the fan maybe faulty and needs to be replaces.
