When ever I'm playing Command and Conquer 3 Kane's Wrath my computer turns off after a few minutes of playing. This never used to happen this is recent so i know my computer doesn't have any problems running it. So if anyone has any ideas of why my computer would just turn off in the middle of the game let me know, thanks.

Have you updated your graphics drivers recently? Do you know what your temperatures are for your processor/graphics card while gaming?

I'm on a Gateway P-6860FX Notebook. its a gaming notebook with the notebook version of the NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTS. I didn't find any updates for it and i do not know the temperatures while i'm gaming.

Rivatuner http://www.guru3d.com/index.php?page=rivatuner can tell you the temperature of your graphics card, if your graphics card/motherboard has a temperature sensor on it. You should blow some canned air throughout your laptop, especially around the fan vents. Does it do this in other games?

haha thanks for the tip(i plan on getting star craft 2)

it doesn't only happen on this game. i was trying to install a hefty amount of programs today.. and my computer turned off. this never used to be a problem it has to be something recent i have no idea what. i think i'll just use the OS disc to try and find repairs or just start all over. my computer is useless

I know this thread is really old but in case anyone else has this problem I'll let you know how I solved it. I bought air duster and a cooling pad for my laptop; then I sprayed all the vents. With the cooling pad and the cleaned out vents my laptop no longer overheats.
