Hey guys, I am in need of some advice on what I should do. I bought my ASUS G60 Laptop a little over a year ago from Best Buy. Up until about 2 or 3 weeks ago, it had been running FFXIV flawlessly (since launch). All of a sudden one day while playing the game it just flat out died on me as if it lost power or something. I figured maybe it overheated so I left it off for the rest of the day to give it a break. It started up just fine the following morning and I was able to continue playing for about a week with no problems at all. Now my problem is back but its doing the same thing about 30 min to an hour into playing the game (this only happens while playing FF). I have a laptop cooler under it and its in an open space so if its overheating I don't think there's anything else I can do to make it better.
Like I said before, it runs fine while not playing the game. Should I pay to have someone look at it or do you think its just been overworked and needs to be "retired" to web browsing and not so demanding programs? I hate to spend the money on a new rig because my laptop was running the game perfectly for 7 months straight but I also don't want to risk "killing" it by repeatedly having it die while trying to run the game.
