A while ago my laptop shut down while I was in the middle of playing a game on it. I thought it was just a crash so I started it up again and ignored it but just recently it crashed again while playing the same game. I'm uncertain if it is the game because I've played it for 26 combined hours before, and only today it started doing this. What happens is I'm using the laptop basically and then it just shuts off instantly. There's no BSOD or crash error message, it just instantly shuts off to a black screen. When I turn it back on there's no errors or anything and it loads just fine. I looked up the recent unexpected shutdowns and it actually shows 3 rather than 2. Now that I've looked at it, I do remember that something had froze and task manager was refusing to open. I tried to go to the registry editor but that also refused to open, but other programs opened fine. I then decided to restart it to see if that was the issue. I shut it down and it did everything fine, but when it went to a black screen and when the laptop usually goes off, I could still hear the fan and the noises from it. I left it for quite a while and it still didn't shut off so I held the power button and it went off. After that I have been using it fine other than these 2 instant shutdowns. Now I am wondering if what I did before is causing it? Or what could be the issue?
