Laptops despite what people may think are not really wise to game with. There can be numerous reasons why it BSOD. How old is this laptop? Also what games are you trying to play? Could have been heat depending on the titles you are running.

I'm not sure how old it is, I bought it few weeks ago from one man
I tried playing mirror's edge, call of duty 2 (2005), call of duty 5, watch dogs, sleeping dogs, max payne 3, crysis 2, tera (online rpg)...
I get bsod after 15 to 50 min of playing...

I have reinstalled windows 7, but it didn't help...

Like I said laptops aren't really meant to game. Those are some extremely hardcore titles that push the CPU and GPU very hard. Your laptop overheating is no surprise. When it over heats it throtles back if it continues to get hot it shuts down. It's not like any other BSOD its a safety mechanism to keep from destroying itself really. My advice if you want to continue to play really hardcore newage titles and not risk the condition of your laptop, get a desktop.

Honestly Watchdogs is a very very new game and that game is extremely hardware taxing (even on low settings)your lucky you didnt fry your laptop completely. It would probably be best to snag yourself a desktop with the proper cooling options so that your laptop could live a little longer. Unless you have money to throw away then by all means do with it what you will. If you prefer mobile gaming I recommend the Nvidia Shield or something of that nature that has gaming in mind. Where laptops are more like the average user or work and school.

Anyhow happy gaming and I hope that laptop doesn't fry pushing those new gen games. Especially considering those games are taxing even to consoles dedicated to gaming to include this generation of them.
 


That's really not true. They're not as efficient as desktops/towers, granted, but laptops designed for gaming have adequate cooling systems to prevent situations like this (of course some of the cooling efficiency hinges on the environment and user responsibility too).

The laptop here is not a gaming laptop. It's an entry level - mid-range multimedia laptop.
