Do you mean the fans were louder with windows 7? if that is the case then it could be that win10 is having some issues talking to the temp sensors in the laptop and telling the fans not to bother reacting to it overheating. In a laptop btw even a basic enough game will heat up the cpu a good deal if it doesn't have a dedicated gpu.

The fan is still speeding up and slowing down, yet with win 7 and Firefox the fans have been going at high speed for long times while heating up anything next to the laptop considerably with the exhaust. (Good to keep your coffee warm lol) It's running a lot quieter now, yet turning off randomly. I've felt it a lot hotter too before. It doesn't have a dedicated gpu.

Ah, it just did it. I pressed escape to go back to the menu in Portal 2. Fan speed was normal. Laptop doesn't feel that hot. It just turned off.
No clue. It boots back up from scratch with no info about restoring from a crash or anything, as if it was properly shut down all the way. Portal 2 is not a good example anyway, doesn't run very well. I'll let Terraria run for a while next.
