Laptop overheating and then shutting down
My System shuts down when using UE4. There is no BSOD or anything and it doesn't generate any dump files either. This happens only when I'm running it with nVidia GPU. If I switch to Intel HD, it runs fine (slower, but it doesn't crash or anything)
I used Open Hardware Monitor to see if CPU is over heating - here's something I noticed. When using nVidia GPU, my CPU temp is around 10C more (around 85C+). Probably why it shuts down?
Has anyone faced this issue?
Specs: CPU : i7 3610QM (Quad core with hyper threading)
RAM: 8 GB
OS : Win 7 64-Bit
GPU: nVidia GeForce GT 630M
85C is too high the termal protection probably kicks in and shut downs the computer
