    1. Is it shutting down when it is idle?
    2. Is this computer new?
    3. Where you are using this laptop?
    a. Some customers of mine use a pillow on thier lap to set the computer on, this blocks some of the fans and causes it to shut down due to heat.

Check if the cooling fan for the processor chip is still working fine because that is the only cause if so replace the cooling fan

I ould reccomend that you take it back to where you purchased it, only because going inside yourself could make it's warranty void.

Computer keeps shuting down

Shuts down when? Right after you boot it up? Or does it run a while then shut down?
If it shuts down after it has run for a while then the computer is probably running hot. Either the CPU Fan is not working or the Thermal Paste has dried up or is too thin to keep the CPU Cool. To prove it is running hot, let the computer sit for a while then boot it up. Once it boots up use it until it shuts down and immediately try to boot it up. If it does not boot up that means it's running hot. But if you let it cool off then try booting up you will be successful.

Samsung p28 sometimes fails to boot then freezes

My P28 bought off ebay did the same so i removed the ram cards and using a artist fine paintbrush brushed wd40(or q20 or any lubricant of this type)into the card slots onto the pins and replaced the memory.Next i removed the cpu cover and then 4 screws holding the cpu heatsink down and cleaned off the heatsink paste from the cpu and heatsink then replaced it with fresh paste and that seems to have worked and solved my problem.Out of intrest the paste was hard and tacky .
