Hi, does anyone know what causes my macbook pro to restart?

Not drive, tested on SSD and Mac original
Not OS, tested on Windows too. OS turns black and stutters then restarts. Windows says graphics card failed and recovered after 2 sec.
Not heat, crashes within a few minutes of starting up sometimes
Not game, crashes on sc2 too
So video graphics card crashes?
Happens 6 months after replacing new graphics card from apple

Recently typing slowed down in league. It would type in chucks. The laptop just restarts randomly and sometimes the screen turns black and stutters. I noticed this happens mostly when my champion dies but not always. Thanks for any advice

Sounds like either a defective card replacement or your mac could be overheating.

If it's a 2010 model it could be this, the only solution (if the OS updates don't work which considering it happens in Windows would mean they wouldn't) is to take it to an Apple store or Apple certified service centre and have the logic board replaced.
