Windows 7: toshiba satellite a500-18x turns off while gaming

Hmm Vick mate I think perhaps the battery is probably a dud mate because whether you play or just surf the net it should last for at least two hours I would have thought.
It could possibly be that the machine is reporting it fully charged and is wrong but I think the battery is faulty. Just how long does it last when playing?

Is it a well known brand or some after market item - I only ask because I had not end of problems with Samsung phones the genuine battery - good the after market pretty darn ordinary and well not worth a whistle.

I got a friend of mine to clean it out and the amount of dust that was removed was crazy! Lol so that solves the heating issue. I also updated the bios. I then tried playing again and it carries on shutting down when plugged in first it shut down within minutes then second time after half hour then after 20 mins..I also tried removing battery and using another power supply from my boyfriends laptop which is basically the same but same thing continued to happen! :-(

Ok matew I sorta reckoned it would be dusty as people don't realise how close to dusty surfaces the air intake actually comes and their laps!! and also the other case vents. So just a tip I am sending a pic of what I do with my lappies I don't as a rule cover the other vents but you might be able to make out the small "filter" I have over the fan intake. It is just a piece of sheer curtain material - you don't want too fine and held in place with some cloth duct tape.

Now to eliminate stuff now run these two if you haven't already
