I'm having problems with my laptop (Toshiba Satellite P300). It just keeps shutting down for no apparent reason (when playing games, watching video's with vlc, going on the internet,...). I have no idea whats going on with my laptop, it doesn't get hot or anything! It just shuts down. And for some reason I can play Assassin's creed 3, but no other games. Can anyone help me?
(Even if the only solution is buying a new laptop)
Well Julie, I have given you all the answers and tricks I had in my bag.
Looks like you computer shuts down when you are sollicitating a lot of graphics such as Sims.
I suggest that you go to the store and seek advice from a qualified technician (not a sales person) tell them which graphic card you have, what you wish to play and ask what graphic card is best for your system.
