    When it is on its side the cpu cooler is pressing on the cpu more?
    Loose cpu cooler?

    Very well could be. Is that what you have decided and came up with to be the only things it coudl be as of now, or is that your guesstimate?

    Well KamikazeSailor's problem looks like the cpu is shutting down on cpu overheat.
    A bad cooler mount would heat up the cpu in a matter of minutes and shut itself down .
    Being on its side, gravity would keep the cooler in contact with the cpu. It would last a lot longer depending on how good the cooler contact was.

    Silly me

    I thought you was him when I asked the above

    I was personally thinking either a loose connection somewhere across the components that was better connected when laid down, or something inside the PSU may have been loose that is better connected when laid down.

    But yeah, what you suggest could very well be the case as well

    You and I have almost the same system specs. I have been suffering through the shut downs as well. Mine always occur when the processor is being heavily utilized. The CPU get to about 126 degrees and the system just powers off. 126 is not hot. my laptop is typically at that temp when idle and has gone to as high as 175 degrees. Have you found any additional info about this problem?

    SOLVED!

    Ok, I took my system apart and discovered two details which seem to have fixed the problem.

    1st: I had a place for an additional power connector on the MB that wasn't connected to anything.

    2nd: The heatsink/fan on the CPU wasn't fastened down correctly. I made sure that it was better secured to the MB.

    Now my system runs about 10 degrees cooler and is able to compress video without overheating and shutting down.

    I am also going to buy some silver paste for the CPU so that I have even better contact and cooling.

    I hope this helps the next guy.
