  1. Computer shutting off randomly while using 3D intensive applications after update.


    It started happening the other day after I had updated my computer. I am unsure of which update because I had several backlogged. Using the computer as it is currently is fine but as soon as a I open an application such as a 3D games including but not limited to: Apex Legends, Escape from Tarkov, Counter Strike: Global Offensive the application will randomly shutdown the computer in the middle of a session. This leaded me to assume it had to do with the graphics card. I did the following in the attempt to fix it: Uninstalled the GPU drivers and reinstalled the latest from the manufacturer's

  2. Laptop randomly shuts down after latest Windows 10 update

    Since the latest update of Windows 10 my computer decides to randomly shut down after every couple of minutes. First the screen goes black, then the sounds stops and after quite a while the power also goes down.

    Obviously I though of cleaning the fan with a big vacuum, as suggested on My Windows 10 Computer Randomly Shuts Down . However, after doing this, the shutting down goes even quicker. I cannot even properly log-on before the shutdown takes place.

    What should be my next step?

    Ps. The computer is quited aged (roughly 3 - 4 years). The battery is dead enough such that I always need to have it plugged in an outlet. It might just be "done for" but I'm hoping to revive it for just a little bit more.

    To better assist you regarding Windows 10 which freezes randomly, please provide the following:

    Furthermore, we suggest that you do a BIOS update to your computer. Here are the steps:

    • Check the motherboard manufacturer's website to find the specific model of your motherboard.
    • Go to the computer manufacturer's website.
    • Look for the computer model that you're using.
    • You should find any available BIOS update.
