Yes you could try a laptop "Cooler Pad" that may help, either that or go into the BIOS and set the temperature "Cut Off" point higher by say 10 - 20 degrees. Ensure the laptop has an air flow all around it at all times. Clean out your exhaust port, of dust etc.

What would cause my aspire 5630 to shut down sporadically?


Shut down sporadically, caused by rising temperatures on the processor (processor overheat). Processor overheat, caused by damage to the processor fan. Processor fan function to reduce the processor temperature.

Possibilities and solutions
1. The possibility of sluggish processor fan. Processor fan spins, with a low speed, so it can not reduce the processor temperature.
Solution: clean the processor fan with a vacuum cleaner, or replace the processor fan.
2. The possibility of fan processor die.
Solution: replace the processor fan.

The characteristics of damage to the processor fan
After the laptop is turned off (more than 1 hour), the laptop can turn on and survive + - 30 minutes. In the period of + - 30 minutes, the laptop died suddenly, because the processor temperature exceeds safe limits (shut down temperature).

How to check
Laptop is turned off (more than 1 hour), then turn on. Download and install software to check the processor temperature. Ex. Real Temp 3.60. See the change in temperature. If the temperature continues to rise, it can certainly cause damage to the processor fan.
- Normal temperature, when first turned on + - 38oC
- Normal temperature, after turn on for hours 40oC - 45oC
- Temperature overheat processor, when first turned on 60oC - 65oC

So keep it up with intel processors.

Turning off in 2 minutes automatically


My guess is that the fans inside the computer have stopped working, thus leading to the overheating. AMD processors generally run "hot" (50 to 60 degrees Celsius) even with proper fans.

Take your computer to a qualified technician, for a cleaning, and proper trouble-shooting, and repair, before the overheating causes permanent damage.

Hi and thank you for using fixya:
Laptop are very sensitive to heat. They do not contain enough space to put a big fan to cool off the processor. I recommend you buy the cooling docks they sell for about $20.00 with a fan on it. If your laptop has a AMD processor you are really going to need it AMD gets really hot.
Good luck
