It is most likely a bad thermal control chip (or connection to it) on the motherboard.
1. Attempt to reflow the motherboard/replace thermal chips (or have a pro do it).
2. Get a new motherboard ($80 to $100).
Option 1 probably cost more than option 2 unless you have a local repair shop where you can just drop it off.
Replacing the motherboard isn't very difficult...just time consuming.
Here is a link to the service manual:
Set the unit on ice packs or an air conditioner vent...it'll probably run for weeks if you can keep it 'ultra cool'.

Either the power supply is putting out too low voltage or the power jack is bad.Try moving the ac adapter tip around while its starting up to see if it keeps it running or shuts it off.If it makes no difference try another ac adapter that does work for sure and see if thats the problem.If neither approach works,then the HDD may be seizing or one of the ram sticks may be bad.Some sort of hardware conflict can cause shut downs.You would have to take the bootstrap approach to narrow it down to one pacific component.
