for any answers,or extra informatn....post here....:)help pls:)
Sudden shut downs are often heat related. Modern motherboards have a sensor under the CPU that cuts off the power when the temperature gets above a certain point (sometimes this point can be set in the BIOS). Usually the CPU fan will spin up very fast trying to cool off the processor just before it shuts down. Often you can feel the heatsink being very hot as well.
I suggest you check your vent holes for clogging (hair, dust, etc.) to make sure you are getting good airflow. Next, peek into the CPU fan to see if there is dust accumulated underneath blocking the heatsink from expelling heat (the dust layer acts like a blanket and keeps the heat in). Finally, if you are technically inclined you can try removing the heatsink/CPU fan and reapply thermal paste to the processor.
