I'm new here. I have been researching this problem for almost a month now and I'm certain that it cannot be due to overheating or PSU. I replaced PSU and both CPU and GPU are running beneath 45C.
I've seen that several people are having this problem with different machines. I came to a conclusion that it must be software...... And Walaah!! i've found it. Hope it works on the other people also having this problem.
I found that as soosn as any download is running in the background while playing Skyrim, the shoutdown happens...randomly. I'm using software such as JDownloader and MiPony. When not one of them is running, I can play forever. When only one is running, I can Play for about 2 - 3 Hours before shutting down, and when both are running I have about half an hour.
Hope this helps
Cheers

Yeah, don't have any downloaders.... sooooo this is not relevant.

OK i fixed the problem. It turned out to be my gpu's overheating i opened my laptop up and the gpu's heat sink's did not fully cover the gpu core's
i did some modding and new thermal paste and now the game runs fine no crashes or shutdowns:D.

I don't see why software will make a computer shutdown only overheating hardware i strongly suggest anybody having this problem to check there pc for dust that would make there computer overheat. Also do not open up your gpu if it has a warranty just call the manufacturer and ask for a replacement.If you don't have a warranty then buy some thermal paste and do it it's easy

I know i changed the thermal paste 3 days ago and was playing fine for hours so i thought that fixed it. I even left the game running for 9 hours alone and it was fine then i posted this thinking that was the fix. Shortly after posting that i started playing and it shutdown.

It is not overheating issue. It seems like certain scripts or processes in the game trigger it. All we can do is wait for the patch.

Speak for yourself. Mine was a heating issue. I got a cooling mat, and it worked perfectly. No crash since.

Well, then it has nothing to do with this topic. It has been mentoined on first pages, that this specific issue is NOT caused by overheating.

No game should ever, ever crash a stable computer. Its possible that there is some sort of driver issue but if so there would be widespread reports of people's computers crashing. One thing is for sure and that is that its not the games fault.

Maybe not, but I am fairly certain it's a hardware issue.
