Hello, just starting today my laptop has been shutting down instantly. Both times happened while running games, but I've been able to play both games before with no problems. The shut down gives no error or anything, acting like someone pulled out the battery. The first thing I thought was overheating, but just yesterday I was running event more intensive games just fine, so I'm not sure. Also I didn't feel any significant heat coming off of anything, if it would even matter.

This was the event log from near the second time it happened, but I don't really know what to make of it.

This laptop is a Dell Vostro 3360, and is only a few months old. Any help is appreciated.
