    when you use the laptop do you have it sitting on something or on your lap.... heat maybe the issue. try putting something under it as to allow air to get under it. also does this happen right after you first boot it up or does it take a while before it acts up?

Dell Latitude D531 is overheating and switching off

A good cleaning of the inside will mostly help a great deal. Take the keyboard off and blow it out with canned air (available at tech. stores and large department stores.. Target/Walmart) On the bottom take off all the covers and use the air there also. As a last effort blow into all ports and any other openning, After you have done this replace all covers and keyboard. It should help a great deal...if not your efforts are not wasted. If it does not help you better put it in the hands of a tech. Good luck
