I have been playing WOW since i got this laptop and ive never had any issues this computer has been the best ive ever gotten to own.
Just a few days ago i was online with muliple browser tabs open because i was doing research for my school paper. I am ADHD and need multiple things going on at once to concentrate(yeah i know its wierd) I also had WoW up in windowed and played and studied back and forth. I was killing something and my screen went black and the the power light turned orange. So i clicked on the power button and it came back on to my computer log in screen, i logged in and i was still attacking the creature and everything was fine like nothing happened. Well it started to do it more and more and more it was driving me nuts. It seemed as though maybe my laptop was starting to overheat. So i cleaned it out thoroughly the fan everything(it did need it) and i got a laptop cooling thing to put under it. At first i was relieved i thought it had worked but it just wasnt doing it as much now. So next i ran everything from spybot to malware, anti-virus, and i cleaned it and defragged it. I also got rid of a bunch of old programs and games i dont use and that didnt work. I got a suggestion to get the vista services optimizer and to use it to put my comp into gaming mode when i play. For a bit that seemed to work. Then i had a browser up and the game and it did it again. so i figured maybe its a bios thing so i checked my bios is up to date but i still got it and used a cd to boot my comp with it again even thought it was the same version. Last night i played all night no issues i even had browsers up for school. Then today a few mins ago i have no game running just the browsers doing my school work and bam it did it again so i dont know whats wrong ive tried everything! I cant send it in because i need it for school i go to online school. so plz someone help!
