So, two or 3 times in the last few months, I've experienced a feared blue screen of death. Now, this has occurred after playing a session of Civilisation V. Because my laptop struggles quite alot more than any of my other games with civilisation, my laptop becomes a little sluggish and I normally have to leave it for a couple of minutes to return to normal speed. However, a couple times now during these sluggish periods a BSOD has occurred, often when I've tried to say, open Google while it's still speeding up again. The graphics on the screen go distorted for a second, and then BSOD.
I haven't noticed any performance issues after and the game itself runs perfectly fine. I've been through with a few scanners and cleaners and, aside from the odd junk file, they can't find any virus' or anything.
So, what should I do? Do you think this might be occurring due to me putting too much strain on the system's resources, or is there a hardware problem, despite the fact I've never had this problem with other games. Perhaps I should just leave it for longer to "Cool off"?
Please note again that civilisation V is the only game my laptop struggles with (not in so much graphics or FPS, but it does get quite hot). I also unfortunately don't have the error code, nor do I know where to find it.
My specs: 4GB ram
AMD HD 6520G+7670M with 1GB dedicated
AMD quad core A6-3420M
2.40 GHZ processing speed
It is an Acer 5560G
Thanks for your help.
