I was playing skyrim in ultra settings when my g75 turned off. ive checked my the charger and it is plugged correctly and does not have a loose connection. so why does my g75 turned off??

It could be a thermal issue with an overheating GPU shutting you down. Install HWINFO64 and monitor your CPU and GPU temps.

dear OP, we are sorry to let you think that we are psychics; but the fact is, we are not.

can you please provide more information regarding this anomaly, such as abnormal entries in the event log? you can also start by telling us about your model, what you did to your hardware,what drivers you have installed, whether you have upgraded your bios, etc.

@dstrakele, now we know you're a psychic lol!

yes i suspected that it was thermal issue too. i wonder why the OP didn't say he felt heats from his machine haha!

You don't need to be psychic. Just think of what can cause a computer to shut down without warning, like someone pulled the plug.

1) overheating

2) power supply

@Bryan sounds like he's confident of his power supply, but offered no temps, so that is how to move this issue forward.
