Laptop randomly shutting down while playing League of Legends
I have a problem, but I am unsure about where the problem lies. It might be League of Legends or my laptop. But so far it has only happened while playing League of Legends. I've probably had this issue for some few weeks now.
In a 40 minute game my computer crashes in average 2 times. Sometimes 3, and sometimes once. Everything turns off instantly like if you hold down the on/off button. Then I have to start the laptop up and reconnect to the game. I think it occurs randomly, but I haven't experienced it happening with a gap less than 10 minutes. And it's not like it happens when I enter a team fights with graphics appearing. It happens when I am at the tower, or at base. Anywhere.
I know it's not the battery, because then the laptop would be able to play for some few minutes and then enter slumber mode. I don't think I am burdening my computer, because I've in 3 years been able to play on it and I tried testing WoW with maximum settings walking around in Stormwind with 10-15 FPS and nothing happened. But in LoL with everything max except shadows and 60 FPS it happens. I am not playing other games, so I haven't tested it.
Please tell me what might be wrong. I really want to be able to play with my friends. I know you'll say "Buy a new...", but I really want to hold on to this for as long as I can. I will buy a new replacement later on, but I can't right now, and I really need this to fulfill my demands. :S
