Question about Computers & Internet
As you use your laptop, the CPU gets warm and the fan kicks in. If the CPU gets too hot, it will shut down as you have found.
Usually, the ventilation slots near to the CPU and CPU fan get clogged with fluff and dust. You need to clear this out.
Disconnect all power sources, turn the laptop upside down and remove any plate/covers that are easy to access.
Carefully blow/clear out any dust and fluff you can see, also try blowing into the ventilator slots. With luck this should clean it out well enough to keep your laptop running.
If not, you're getting into a dimantle scenario, taking more or less the whole thing apart and will neet CPU heat dispersal grease to re-assemble when clean.
