Question My laptop shuts down when running games or other resource intensive apps.

Feb 18, 2019
I recently bought a 2014 Razer Blade Laptop and I have been experiencing an issue where it will shutdown within a few minutes after running certain games, or instantly when running Heaven benchmark. I have been combing the forums looking for a solution but haven't found anything that works.

It seems like it will shutdown when the gpu temps get to around 75c, which shouldnt be an issue. Also the laptop came with a power cable that isnt stock which provides a 120w current, while the Blade needs a 150w current; however the issue persists while on battery.

Event Viewer describes the issue as a kernal power error 41, which is pretty ambiguous but might narrow it down.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated thank you!
