which doesn't surprise, since videodrivers don't typically shut your pc off. it might have fixed the blue screen error, tho

I am still back to heat as the main culprit, or power supply. I think you need to take this laptop in to be serviced.

is there a heat vent? fans? can you use a can of compressed air to clean them (hold blades in place with a toothpick so bearings do not burn out)
