It's years old so if the battery is gone, replace that and begin a daily canned air routine for a week and then back to monthly.
If you didn't keep up the canned air routine, the motherboard has aged.
Try setting the maximum number of CPU cores in the OS to 2 for test runs and put it on a cooling pad after the battery is replaced.
I've see folk write it's not heat or power but then it's going to be even more expensive (new motherboard.)
So hello, ive seen posts like this before, i know they exist.Ive tried many things to see what the problem is, but no progress is being made.Last post on this topic was from 2014(at least from what ive seen)
So the problem is that whenever I PLAY GAMES on this laptop, everything goes well (temps aroud 83c) and little to no throttling.ive had this laptop for a year and a half and it was around 93c doing fine without problems.But few weeks ago, it started shutting down on itself.Of course it was shutting down without any warning, just typical thermal throttle.So first thing i cleaned it up, the problem persisted.Then ive taken it apart and replaced thermal paste (the temps went down 10c) but for some reason, the problem still presists.Also ive deleted drivers in safe mode, and reinstalled them, it made a progress,now i can play for about 20min but still it shuts down.The temps are stable 83-85c.
I have taken it to the service center, they said theyve fixed it, but not at all...they never test games, and well this pc never fails at anything but at gaming.I cant find the problem, it was going without any problems for so song.
Im writing here asking for help, i have no idea what should i do if anything at all.I dont wanna take it to service center again, its annoyment at best.The last thing i can try in the book is fresh install of windows,but im not sure what difference coudl that do
