Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit


In advance, sorry for my English :)

I've got same laptop and same problems, but computer shutting down after 30 mins, some times after 1-2 hours without blue screen...

I've cleaned my fan, thermal paste replaced, Windows 7 Home premium 64 bits re installed, all drivers updated. BIOS updated and default settings set. Also I've bot notebook cooler fan pad. Temperatures of CPU, GPU and motherboard during gaming never over 70 deg. C.

I've checked power output from battery charger to computer, it's 19,6 V, so it's OK. Laptop always on charger, without battery. With battery and without it's keep shooting down.

In attachment there is BOSD files after computer crashed.

Any suggestion why its can be?

I "solved" the problem, didn't do any hardware changes or anything, but I under-clocked my computer, so it doesn't use as much power and now I don't crash anymore.

I knew I should have asked. That's common cause of problems.
