It may be a heat problem that you can’t feel…I got to say if you can feel the heat from the fans then that part is doing what it is supposed to be doing, if you can’t then it may be blocked.

If the fans are loud then that tells me something is hot and the pc/laptop is trying to cool it down, if it cannot cool it down then it will shut it down to preserve the computer hardware. If it is a laptop then I suggest buying a can of air and blowing it out, also buy a laptop table with inbuilt fan really helps keep them cool and efficient, they are only around $20 and if this is happening only when you are playing this game then I would say it is a heat issue

Hello Alvin

You could try these programs to see if the problem is temperature:

Core temp. It is a simple application that monitors the temperature on any PC.

The other much more complete option is MSI Afterburner. With this you can even put the temperature on the screen (in a corner for example) to see the temperature in real time. It shows the temperature and performance of different components, such as CPU or GPU.

Hi this is a common issue for the asus X540U due to the laptop's "small heatsink" for the gpu and processor (yes they are only small chunks of metal with no heatpipe. i suggest cleaning it out and replacing the thermal paste will help too. this will help only a little.

The most stable way to fix this problem is to make a custom heatsink for this.
The current thermal design of this laptop is not sufficient for the components it comes with. (unless you are using this with an i3 or lower processor.)
