Hi there, I have an issue with my laptop. Yesterday I was playing a game on my laptop when it suddenly shut down. I plugged it in into the AC adapter multiple times but the LEDs would not turn on. I have tried unscrewing the back but the screws are hard to get out. I believe this is either a overheating of the CPU/laptop or there’s an issue with the battery. The only thing I’ve done to it hardware wise is disable the V-Sync in my Nvidia Graphics.

First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.
Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.
Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat; Re-Connect the AC adapter.
NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.
Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.
Choose System Tests (Fast Test does a 4 minute hardware check).
This will not work for everyone, but you may be lucky?
