L4D2 Online Gameplay, Laptop switches off no warning, just shutdown
For the last couple of times when I tried playing left for dead online verses it loads and about 1-2 minutes into the game, my whole laptop just switches off, no warning and I will have to start my laptop up again.

I search it up and know its not a laptop overheating problem any ideas why? I still want to be able to play. I have a Samsung laptop.

Why do you say you know it is not an overheating problem? This sounds very much like an overheating issue to me. Sometimes laptops (and PCs in general) can develop issues over time due to the repeated heating up and cooling down of components. Sometimes this can cause the solder points on the boards to weaken and/or the thermal paste to be less effective. Another explanation could be dust build-up in the case and especcially around the fans. Does this issue occur during light usage? What about when you launch other games or a stability test; does the system restart then?

Other things to look at could be a bad stick of RAM, issues with the power supply, issues with the GPU, or a failing motherboard.

Otherwise, I'd say run something like Prime95 to stress test your CPU and something like Furmark to stress your GPU (don't do this simultaneously -- one at a time) and see if the system reboots. Then, take it from there as you eliminate one element at a time.

Edit: It'd also help people diagnose your issue if you included your machine specs. Processor type and speed, RAM amount, and GPU would most likely be suffiicent.
