I recently purchased the batman arkham games during the steam sale. As soon as I started playing Arkham Asylum my computer got really hot and shut down after about 45 minutes of gameplay.  I was able to turn it back on after about five minutes and no other activity(other games, movies) causes it to overheat but when I tried playing the game again it once again got too hot and shut down after about 45 minutes.  I have never had issues with over heating before.  I have a Toshiba Satellite S955-S5373.


Any help with what might be causing this would be greatly appreciated.

Most laptops aren't designed to be gaming rigs unless you go out and purchase one specifically made for gaming. Also newer games are extremely resource intensive, they put a lot of strain on non-gaming laptops. Make sure the laptop is on a solid surface that isn't going to trap the heat under the laptop. You can also try a cooling pad that helps move heat away from the bottom of the laptop. On my old laptop I actually had to prop up the back of it with a book and put a fan right next to my desk blowing across it.
