Question about Computers & Internet
I would suggest you to check the heatsink and cpu fan,
it could be dirty, if it is dirty, clean it and it should work fine.
To see heatsink and cpu fan, open 4 screw on the back of your laptop.
remove the cover, remove the fan screw (3), remove fan,
remove 4 screw on the cpu heatsink, remove the heatsink.
if your heatsink and fan are clean, it could be something else cause the shut down.
in this case you should send it for repair.
