Is it very hot?

If so Tkae compressed air and blow it into all the vents on the computer. You are trying to loosen dust. Get it all loose possible near the vents then **** out all dust you cna with a vacuum cleaner.

This should stop the laptop from overheating and shutting down.

What does abrupt mean ?

Well, if I shouted at you "what the hell do you want here" at our first meeting, I would be being abrupt (and rude).

If I took you for a car journey and said "look at the pretty birds" and then slammed on the brakes, I would have stopped abruptly.

1.sudden and unexpected:
"I was surprised by the abrupt change of subject".
2.brief to the point of rudeness; curt:
"you were rather abrupt with that young man".
3.steep; precipitous:
"the abrupt double peak of the mountain"

My laptop shuts down for no apparent reason, I believe it may be overheating.

Abrupt shutdown commonly is caused by overheating. This is mostly caused by a faulty CPU fan. Check if the surface of your laptop gets warmer than usual. If so and if you are accustomed to disassembling electronic devices disassemble the laptop and clean the fan and heat sink. Otherwise visit a technician.

Does this occur when you open a specific program for eg. windows media player etc. Note that the application may open and run for a while or even run perfectly sometimes, but observe if the abrupt shut down has any relation to a specific program. If so checking you Ram or using an alternative software will resolve your issue.

NOTE: Some viruses may cause such actions. Scanning your computer with the latest virus definition updated anti virus may solve your problem.
