Severe game crash

I don't know if anyone else has had this problem and I'm unsure whether this is trainer related or just game related in general. But when I play the game and using the trainer with unlimited health and unlimited air, it seems to run on a timer of sorts but after exactly 30 minutes my entire computer just shuts down. Not the windows shut down, it just stops as if ripping out the powercord. I'm not quite sure what to do with this and any help would be much appreciated

well it could do that if your over heating or your power supply is busted

Well I'm running it on a laptop. And it's not an overheating problem. I can run everything on ultra high basically in DS2 without any lag or problems what so ever. My laptop doesn't feel warm either and I can play any other game with no problem

A heat issue usually, but doesn't always, give a lot of external heat off (in the case of a laptop). I would agree with it been either heat or power related, due to it been around the same amount of time when it cuts off. There's also a chance it could be a graphics fault, perhaps with VRAM. No way to tell for certain though from what you've said.

Gaming on laptops though.. eugh :/

It isn't power related. It's got something to do with the graphics for as far as I can tell. I've updated my video drivers and now instead of 30 minutes I can play a whole 60. It still crashes after that though. So I'm not sure what the problem is

Just plain shutting off is usually overheating. Like... 90% of the time with graphics intense games.

Try and get some compressed air and blow it in and around the fans/fins on the laptop. If its a good graphics card, it should have fan controls. Graphics card companies set the fan at 30% by default. Try finding out what software will let you override that, and try setting it to 70%.

Otherwise plan on the card finally giving out.

Well it's a dual Nvidia Gforce 280 GTX so I doubt it's cause the game is too intense for my cards. I have called support and they told me to turn off one of the cards to see if it works. So I'm still testing those grounds. Been experimenting with drivers, but so far that lane is a bust.

Shut down itself is high likely caused by overheating from CPU or Power Supply. Since you are using Laptop, check the fan and ensure that it's running. Do not put laptop on your lap that covers fan prevent it to intake the air to keep it cool.

Personally, I hate gaming on laptop due to sensitive to overheating but yeah I know it's really nice to bring gaming to elsewhere but overheating can damage to computers.

If it's constantly shut down itself, I would recommend stop playing any games and send your laptop to a computer repair store and have them to check to prevent it from getting any further damage.
