Gaming Laptop Shuts Down Itself during Gaming

Hi everyone!


My laptop went off by itself during gaming. I happens only since this week and before that it works all fine. I bought it in last year September and normally during gaming the pc would be very hot. After shutting off it wont start until a few minutes later. And an error message concerning BIOS (502) will show. I updated BIOS but it is in vail. I also tracked the temp of CPU it is around 90c during gaming, and fan is working. Does anyone encounter this issue before? Thx!

CPU: i5 8th Gen

GPU: GTX 1050 2G

BIOS version: F.18
