Hi, as the title suggests my computer just randomly turns off completely when playing games. This doesnt happen all the time for example the other day it happened back to back three times when I played world of warcraft, but the following day it did not do it once. I thought it could've been when I ran itunes and listened to music at the same time but I started listening to music on the same day and it didnt turn off all day. But I just tried to play the new call of duty beta and it switched off in the loading screen so I tried again and it switched off 1 minute into a game.

It isn't over heating as I was recording my temperature as I played but it still did it, i want to say it might be something with the fan as when I looked in the case after it being switched off the fan was already still as opposed to slowing down to a stand still.

Kinda frustrating and would appreciate any advice! Thanks in advance
