Okay, no more livestreams for me until I can figure out why my computer crashes while doing so. Can't even livestream Spiral Knights while running a webcam for more than 10 minutes without the problem.

All it does when it crashes is it shuts down immediately - no BSoD, nothing. The games run perfectly fine - they just won't play for more than 10 minutes without the sudden shutdowns. Time for me to invest in an Alienware X51 with 8 GB RAM.

Laptop specs to those who want to know.

Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
AMD Phenom II X4 N970 (2.2 Ghz)
ATi Mobility Radeon HD 4250 (drivers up to date)
4 GB DDR3 RAM
640 GB 5400 RPM HDD
Realtek HD Audio (drivers up to date)
15.6 HD LED display (1366x768 resolution)
1.3 MP webcam.

Games were up-to-date as well as the Steam client.

I think it could be a laptop being overstressed so I will have to clean the vents and heatsinks. Plus upgrade to 8 GB of memory just to be safe.

EDIT: My laptop has averaged at 68 °C in the CPU and motherboard. And that's without any games running. Guess the reason why my laptop shuts down randomly during a livestream of Spiral Knights.

I think you need super-ultra-cooling fan.. And you do it on your laptop? Use desktop then.

Your computer is overheating. Make sure the processor is mounted properly, has complete contact with coolant/thermal paste and heatsink, and that the laptop's fans and are all running properly.

I think my laptop fans were knocked out when I had a drop accident a few months ago. I'm going to bring it in for an inspection whenever I get a chance. I might have to build a desktop if I have to.
