Laptop crashes randomly in-game Dota 2 but no problems playing other games like LOL

  • Laptop crashes randomly in-game Dota 2 but no problems playing other games like LOL

    Beginning about a month ago, my laptop started crashing randomly in-game Dota 2. It's never had this problem before but now it does. It has no problems playing any other games such as League of Legends or Neverwinter Nights 2, but with Dota 2 it crashes in-game at about more than 50% of the time, sometimes crashing more than once in a single game. My laptop is turned off and I have to turn it back on and get in the game. I can't find anything common about the crashes. They all seem to be random. Some games, it plays just fine all the way until the end. Other games, it doesn't. I've tried lowering to graphics to the very lowest thinking my laptop just might've been overheating, and it still crashes. I tried reformatting my laptop and re-installing Dota 2, it still crashes. Please help.

    My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L850
    Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1
    Intel i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50 GHz
    8.00 GB RAM
    AMD Radeon HD 7670M

    Why not post it in the bug/tech support sectional?

      I couldn't find it awhile ago but now I just found it. Very strange. I could swear it wasn't there just a while ago. But thanks for your reply. Will post there now.
