OS: Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS and Windows 11

So, I’ve been using my laptop extensively for a few months now. I initially purchased it for university purposes but also hoped to play games on it. While the performance is consistently great for all the games I’ve tried, a persistent issue occurs after approximately 5 minutes of gaming: the laptop freezes completely. This happens every time, causing me to worry about potential damage to the system.
It’s worth noting that this freezing problem occurs regardless of whether I’m using Windows 11 or Ubuntu (my current operating system). When the freeze happens, the computer locks up, the audio gets stuck in a loop, the mouse and keyboard become unresponsive, and the fans start running at high speed.
