Over the past couple of months my computer has been shutting down by itself, usually after very short bouts of gaming. I'll be maybe 10 minutes in, and then it will just go to a blue screen and say shutting down. If I restart immediately, it will get some way towards booting up and then shut down again by itself.
It is a really beefy computer though, so I'm surprised that it is doing it. At the moment it can't cope with age of empires 3, which is over 10 years old!
The computer is a 2017 alienware 17 inch laptop, with an i7 and gtx1060.
I did some searching and downloaded HWinfo, which is showing me that my CPU temps look very hot, and have been hitting the high 90's while playing any game. I'm assuming that the computer shuts down when they hit 100, but by the time I boot back up and run HWinfo again the temps have cooled.
Any help would be massively appreciated, this was a crazy expensive laptop and it now seems to be a complete waste of cash.
