  • Huge crash

    Not really sure what causes this guys, but it's happened twice to me already, while watching replays that i've downloaded on Dota 2, after like 10 minutes, my laptop gets extremely hot and just force shut down, and it won't be able to be turned on until i take out and reinsert the battery.

    Now i've found it strange that a Source engine game can put this kinda strain on my graphic card but has this happened to anybody else ? My GPU is seriously strong and I don't run many processes, when I was waching but I've noticed it only happens if I'm watching a replay for more than 10 minutes or so, seriously my laptop HEATS UP, like seriously gets hot, and it scares me that if I keep this up, the GPU's gonna burst.

    This has happened to me the two times I've decided to watch my own replays twice for more than 10 minutes, anything on this? Any help would be great, btw , my laptop has never force crashed like this ever other than this whole dota 2 replay fiasco.

    We ain't talking like the program closes and shuts down , it just literally turns off, just boom off, screen goes black, charger light doesn't light up, all lights off and I won't be able to turn it on until i take out and reinsert the battery. The laptop would be as hot as an oven after.

    GPU : Nvidia 560M
    Ram : 8gb
