I'm having the same problem and its not from overheating. I have a cooling fan, etc.

How soon does the laptop switch off? Immediately, or a few minutes into booting into Windows, or ... ?
It could be an overheating issue. If you're using it on your lap or on a soft surface such as a couch or bed, the fan might not be able to release the heat.
Try putting something underneath the back of the laptop and place it on a stable surface such as a desk and boot it up - see if it still shuts down.
Otherwise, let me know how soon it's switching off, or at what point if it's the same point every time.
