    Hi Everyone, thank you for looking at this post.

    Essentially, when i play a game the laptop just shuts off in a blink of an eye. Someone said it might be overheating. So, i changed the paste and cleaned the fans. Still switches off. Then, someone told me to put my cpu at 65% and said if it switches off then it isnt your cpu. it switched off. If i am on the net, watching videos, in fact, some games work fine on low settings but i crank it up and the fans start whirring then it goes off. Someone said it may be my GPU but if i am honest i am a complete noob when it comes to in depth settings on a pc. Honestly, if anyone in the UK can help i would treat them to some COD points or Fortnight. Seriously this is really depressing for me. I need this laptop to keep my mental health above normal so if anyone can help then please i would appreciate it. My specs are INTEL I5 8300H 8GB RAM 64 BIT WINDOWS 10
