Laptop shuts down as graphics fail
I'll get to the point :)
I recently installed Battlefield 2 on my laptop (done this many times in the past), anyway I was in the game and i started seeing the graphics fail around me e.g. Buildings lagging and merge into one (Like when a program is not responding and you drag it), lines coming off my gun etc.
Then say 10 minutes after the graphics failing in places my laptop turns itself off - no shutdown, power just cut.
I came up with a few ideas on what this could be and I realised its not the game because why do it now after 2 years of playing it on this system?
I have had problems with my system shutting down on its own before but that was due to my laptop fan failing and my CPU overheating and turning the system off.
I took the back off my laptop felt the copper tube thing that leads to the processor (when my laptop was off of course ;) and it was reasonably cool so it wasnt my CPU.
This clearly to me is the graphics card due to the gfx failing.
Any ideas/solutions to my problem will be much appreciated.
