prise off the two corner pieces that cover the hinge for the screen. Underneath there are two screws. Remove these, then peel away the keyboard and the plastic covering. There you will see the fan system. Four screws (on springs - careful) will have this away but be aware of the power cable which is tucked in behind a piece of metal. At all times be careful not to damage the keyboard ribbon cable which is usually pretty fragile.
Another few screws (tiny ones) will have the top of the fan off then you can clean and put it all back together. The result: a laptop that actually blows air through and cools what it should.
Kindly rate if this helped Regards

Your problem is a bad Processor fan. Have the fan replaced first. The fact that the unit works for awhile and shutsdown points to the fan.
This seems to be a common problem with laptops over a couple of years old. Dust gets trapped in the copper fins and the fan of the CPU heatsink and reduces the efficiency of the cooling, which results in regular power off's by the laptop as it gets over it's upper temperature setting. The fix is relatively easy, just remove the heatsink unit, blow it clean with compressed air, clean the old CPU heatsink paste off with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and spray a thin film of heatsink paste on the CPU. If the cleaning does not work, replace the fan.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response
