Hi geeks,

after I saw some excellent help for someone who had a similar issue I decided to go ask for help here.
I've been having this problem for quite some time now already and I've asked for help at different forums but without any luck so far.

My problem is that whenever I play games, usually somewhat like 15 minutes in game or sometimes even close to 5 minutes my whole laptop crashes.
I hear this awful loud sound that freaks me out and then I'm forced to restart my laptop.

This issue started after I decided to update my drivers. I've reinstalled drivers several times, ran programs with registry cleaning stuff but nothing seemed to help. So I decided to reinstall windows 7.
So after that I started a new game. FPS was noticeably better and the game played really smooth, but yeah it still decided to put troll-mode on and crash. Repeated this several times but kept crashing.

I would love to see some fresh thoughts on this issue. Note that I currently have a clean installation of windows 7 so I suppose there shouldn't be any corrupted drivers, registry or whatever. But who am I to know for sure, I'm not that experienced is this kind of stuff either.

Before I reinstalled windows 7, those games were League of Legends, Skyrim, Lord of the Rings online and even minecraft.
After the installation the only game I tested is League of Legends.

Last week this game ran perfectly fine, I actually thought it was over but now it seems to happen again.
It happens almost every game.

sorry for the delay in response. The loud sound is the audio locking up during the crash. In fact it could be the cause. you can try going to the laptop manufacture site and update your sound drivers. Look at the back of the laptop, there should be a fan. You can use some canned air to clean it out. It is also possible that our laptop is overheating, causing the crash.

next time it does the crash, there should be a stop code listed. c0x00000050 for example. All I need is that info. If it restarts before you can see the info, then do the following to disable auto restart:

1. Click on the Start button and then on Control Panel.
2. Click on the System and Security link.
Note: If you're viewing the Small icons or Large icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply double-click on the System icon and proceed to Step 4.
3. Click on the System link.
4. In the task pane on the left, click the Advanced system settings link.
5. Locate the Startup and Recovery section near the bottom of the window and click on the Settings button.
6. In the Startup and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.
7. Click OK in the Startup and Recovery window.
8. Click OK in the System Properties window.
9. You can now close the System window.
10. From now on, when a problem causes a BSOD or another major error that halts the system, Windows 7 will not force a reboot. You'll have to reboot manually when an error appears.
