Could be the video capabilities over-heating when gaming. I have a laptop that claimed to be a "gaming" laptop with a Radeon mobile 5870. I've had it 1.5 years and never really gamed with it until just recently. Loaded up modern warfare 2 and same thing, everything works great, but after about 5 minutes it shuts down and won't start back up for a few. At that point, the case is really hot right where the video card is located. Until it cools to a certain degree, the PC won't start back up. I even updated the video drivers to the latest release which doubled my minutes to 10, but it still shuts down.

The PC runs without fail as long as you're not gaming on it.

Does your laptop have a discrete video card? Is it an AMD?

This is a well known problem with HP Laptops, had this to with a laptop from HP before. The heat generated by the videocard can't flow away. That's why the laptop is shutting down itself. Try to see where the airflow is comming from and put something under your laptop see if it works better.

hi guys! iam rajesh rathode, iam facing the same problem after research work i discoverd that this happens due to over heat! solution is ...........
1)purchase cooling pad and keep below the notebook(cost around 150 bugs)
2)Unable to go with 1 st option then ,place some blocks of books to the left and right and place the laptop above the books so that during over heat the air will escape easily
note:-6 inches min left /right and make sure laptop below air escape position should be free and not blocked by these placed books

iam damm mad off playing games guys if u have any problem in crossing levels do ask me

Regards,
