Cannot figure out what is wrong with laptop (details in description)?
Recently I've been having a problem where when I play games the screen either becomes distorted or black. With one game, it freezes up after a while and theres red lines on the screen. With the other one the screen just goes black. To get it to go away I have to force a shutdown on the laptop and restart, it doesn't go away on its own. If I pick the laptop up or move the screen after this, the screen goes black again.
I took it to a repair place, here is what they did (after 2 visits)
-ran a stress test for 2 days on the GPU and CPU, couldn't recreate the problem.
-checked the inside, cleaned it out, made sure all the cables were connected and not damaged. They also checked the fans for damage.
-wiped my hard drive, reinstalled windows 10, and updated the drivers.
The problem still persists, I try to play a game and 5-10 minutes in the screen is black.
They said their best guess right now is overheating. I downloaded a program to check the core temperature, when in game and using a cooling pad the max temp is around 70-75 degrees Celcius. From what I've googled, the temperature shouldn't exceed 80 degrees and it hasn't. I have also gone into Device Manager and checked my graphics card and it says everything is working normally.
I'm not sure what else this could be they've done a lot to try and diagnose this problem, it's been 2 weeks and so far nothing has worked. Any ideas?
