Notebooks are equipped with thermal censors that will initiate power off when it detects that the temperature become too hot.
You should check your notebook ventilation, clean it up as necessary to remove dust. You may need to open your notebook to get it clean.
If cleaning up is not enough and your problem persist, there may be problem with the thermal cencors become too sensitive or inaccurate. In this case, you need to go to service center to get it fixed.

How to replace Power socket of MX6453 Gateway laptop.?

Generally the power is soldered directly on to the motherboard on a laptop. So for the most part replacing it either means, finding an identical power supply and being really good at soldering, or replacing the motherboard. Either way if you are not very familiar with taking laptops apart, and computers in general, I would recommend you take it to someone who repairs them for a living.

If the laptop is still relatively new....check with Gateway to see if it's under warranty. If it is, they should fix it or replace it for free. If it is beyond warranty, you may find it comes out more expensive to fix, than just buying a new laptop.

Good Luck
