    Sounds like you're on a laptop. Can you confirm it's overheating and not something else?

    Also be sure your drivers are up to date and try cleaning the unit.

    Yes i'm on a laptop.

    It works pretty fine when i browse or code but when i play games it heats up and switches off.

    all my drivers are upto date. i have a cooling fan too. i know people who play similar games with lower specs than my laptop. why am i facing this issue?

    Because it's not getting cooled off as it needs to. Sounds like the unit could use a cleaning.
