Will you please help me to fix my computer.

Answers :

Hi I suggest you update your display driver first and then update others as well. Wrong drivers and incompatible bios versions can cause many problems....\015\012
\015\012The link is directly to your lenovo website for the Lenovo 3000 Y500 laptop. Incase your model is different let me know the exact model. It will be listed underneath your laptop on a sticker with bar code.
Video driver has nothing to do with shutting down the laptop automatically. i am also using the lenovo laptop Y500 7761 45Q and few months back i also had the same issue.
Here is what we can try:
\015\012The problem is over heating due to excessive usuage. so keep the laptop in the cool place. also if it doesnot reslove the problem the heatsink and fan assembly needs to be replaced. It might be possible due to playing a game or due to using the computer for a very long time. turn it off give it few minutes to cool down. and then turn it on. it should fix the problem.
\015\012If this information was helpful. please rate this solution HIGH.
