Hello deep10

This mostly happens due to CPU or GPU overheating.

As you mentioned you have had your laptop serviced recently, the problem is probably due to incompatible graphics driver.

You can begin with downloading any CPU temperature testing application and checking if CPU/GPU is getting overheated.

Once verified, you may want to download the latest driver for your graphics card from here.

If the system continues getting overheated, you can try replacing the thermal paste for the CPU and GPU.

Let me know which of the above solutions worked for you. Good Luck!!
