Please see this bulletin to make sure you are not affected by a battery recall.
These kind of shutdown issues can take time to diagnose, but you could try this solution, and also reference this page for others.
Otherwise, see this article, this article, follow these instructions to update your drivers.
That's about all you can software-wise. However, there may be some inherent problems with the notebook that require hands-on attention to resolve the overheating issue. See posts here, here, maybe here. and google it. Also see one possible repair source here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

1) A fan may be broken. You can either take it in to a shop, open it yourself and see if the fans work, or download a free diagnostic program called SpeedFan. It allows you to view and control your computer's fans, as well as control their speeds. If you see that no fans are working, that may be a problem. If they are working, you can order them to work at maximum speed, thereby increasing your laptop's cooling.

2) Update or reinstall your display drivers, update your motherboard drivers.

3) Run your games on lower settings. This will cause your processors to work less, producing less heat, and consuming less power.

4) Download a program called ATItools. Use it to underclock your graphics card. This will also reduce performance in exchange for heat (no pun intended) and power.

5) Download a program called clockGen, and use it to underclock your CPU. This will decrease performance, but will also decrease heat and power consumption as well.

6) Only play games in air-conditioned rooms.

Make sure all cooling fans are working properly and any exaust areas on the computer are not blocked. You may have to get your fans upgraded.

My HP Compaq Presario v2000 has new mobo, new CPU


You probably put more than a pin-head size drop of heat grease compound on CPU, thus "bleeding" over on the CPU, effectively overheating processor (very common). In any event, your problem is overheating -that's *the* place to look for now.

Compaq v2000 dies after some time


Is the machine getting hot when it shuts down? If so, then you may need to clean the fan and heat sink. A dust or dirt build up can hinder the cooling system performance allowing the machine to heat up to a level that kicks in the built in fail safes in order to keep from damaging the processor. Try cleaning them and let me know. We'll go from there.
