    Believe me It's pretty awkward if you wherever try to watch something in full-screen and then computer(Laptop Asus F5Gl-AP018C) suddenly shuts without clear reason. And I am serious that at beginning I thought that was God intervention. (Problem occurred firstly when I was watching porno)...anyway, will you help me with this?

    it has got to be the porno dude, hahaha:D
    So does your Asus shuts down only while playing movies?
    Does it give you any indication, error
    What OS are you running? and how is it activated?
    are your drivers uptodate,got any exclamation points under device manager?
    Give more info my man if you wish to watch your porn quicker

    Gooood morning and thanks for fast reply to you hbhb!

    Well, my awesome vehicle witch Windows 7 on it shuts down after a while of watching movie but when I tried to play LOTRO(Lord Of The Ring Online) it behaved badly too. Hmpf, my OS is activated regularly. - For now I don't have installed any additional systems if it is what bothered you. Time of running without any problems depends on format and size of file.-The bigger and harder it is the less time passes till BOOM! - I mean it is running, running running and then it shuts down suddenly and rudely without any alert. Everything stops working in about one sec.-BOOM! It occurs to me that I don't have installed drivers to floating-point unit but graphic card drivers exists and are rather up to date.More info:
    3GB of RAM
    CPU: Duo T5800
    Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G

    Whats happening man, what I will do to start troubleshooting is verify the media player you are using, update it and try another; VLC is a good one as i dont know which one you are using, if you are using it ,try built in Win media player or else just to make sure.

    does your pc crash with any type of movie or just a particular format?

    What I would do also is try to read on the error report and see if you get any clue there, ok man!


    lets resolve this!:cool:

    One thing that might be overlooked is an overheating problem. Video card generate a lot of heat. Make sure the vents are clear and the CPU fan is clean. You can monitor the processor temps with CoreTemp to see if you are reaching the maximum temperature. Use the "always on top" in the CoreTemp options so it is visible during the full screen video. The Tj.max is the temp that will cause a system shutdown.

    I had a similar problem, not from watching porn, but shutting down on anything that was making the system work hard. I cleaned out the CPU heat sink & fan, and everything was OK again. Hope this helps.

    Ok. Tomorrow morning I will run in shop and buy concentrated air and special cloth for this kind of stuff and after that will tell you if it worked.


    hbhb I don't think it is media player causing that all chaos. Besides I wrote ( though as always I surely f**k something with grammar) that laptops shuts down when I try to play games.
