I have had my laptop for about 2 years.
I used to be able to play games with no problems. However when I am gaming now the screen randomly turns black however the laptop stays on (power button still blue and I can still hear fans). This problem doesn't occur when playing low end games like minecraft, Garrys mod and team fortress 2.
Do you know what the problem could be and how to fix it?
Also my laptop gets a bit hot but not enough to overheat so I don't think its because it overheats.

Thanks in advance

did you actually run some app to find the gpu/cpu temp or just feeling the case?

I felt the bottom and the air coming out of the side wasn't that hot.
