Hi rkhould it is the work of virus
I also faced the same problem and then i tried to install current antivirus and scanned my pc i found the virus and the problem get solved
I recommend you norton 360 and scan your drive in which your operating system is installed
these viruses are generally enetered in your pc through usb or if you use internet
try to scan your pc daily otherwise after some day your operating system may become corrupt and you lose your important data

hi,
Please check for the exhaust,is it coming properly and check the bottom of the Notebook is it heating ?
If heating then this is the issue with the processor fan.
If the temprature is normal then check in BIOS(leave the system in BIOS mode for 8 minutes) if then also it is turning off surely this is the heating issue.
If above mentioned is not working please revert.

Keeps tuening itself off


try running a malware or spyware remover. but i doubt it that malware would do this. Try to get ComboFIX from a reliable source. like majorgeek, etc etc.

Just to see if you are covering any holes while using the laptop, placing the laptop on a bed is not a good idea on top of a hard cover book or a laptop cooling station is better you want to make sure, the vent are free of obstructions and breathing.
