Sometimes, the CPU heat sink fan might get clogged up or faulty or stop spinning entirely. Make sure that the fan can turn properly.
IF YOU CAN, open the unit when the battery is disconnected and the power is not connected, then reseat the CPU Heat sink and re-apply a eye drop heat sink thermal paste onto the CPU. Reconnect and tighten everything again properly and adhere to the sequence in turning the screws back as per their numbering on the heat-sink
If the FAN has trouble spinning, doesn't turn at all or is noisy and runs irregular please replace the fan. The fan alone should cost about a few US $.

then you'll get the right one, but check the fan first. because if it spins at all then it will just need cleaned get a hoover to it or open it up & poke all the sh*@t out of grills then it will be able to breath again lol. GOD LUCK
It sounds as if you are experiencing a heat related issue. Often the problem can be taken care of by removing the heatsink/fan assembly, cleaning it, and reapplying thermal paste to both the CPU and GPU.
I am guessing that if your laptop is over a year old, even if you only used it 6 months, that it is out of warranty. You have to be a little careful on disassembly, but it should clear up your problem.
I am assuming you mean that it gets Hot ?
If it crashes and is switching off then it may be the fan that is not working. Check that fan is working and give it a clean. If it is still getting too hot then re paste the CPU Heat Sink (Recomend Arctic Silver 5) if its still getting too hot then your CPU may be on its way to PC Heaven.
