Take the bottom off the fan compartment and clean and blow out any dust, it can get very clogged. I have the same machine for many years. During a DVD movie the fan will switch on and off a few times. Also check the CPU useage, during idle it should be very low. Its possible a rouge program is demanding high CPU

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail. A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust. Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.
You don't have to reduce the FAN speed, because the Fan power works in PWM (Pulse Width Modulation). I.E if the CPU processing is increasing due to high process load, the fan speed changes accordingly to maintain a CPU normal temperature.
Hey, will be cpu related ie overheating, when your playing games causes the cpu temperature to increase once it hits around 60c it will restart to save damage to your laptop, i would suggest making sure the fan is working if not have it replaced, but depending on ya knowledge i would suggest taking it to a shop to repaste cpu and clean out heatsink etc.
Its a typical failure of MSI fans from those times. Unfortunately the exchange part will not solve your problem. (I read it in comments lots of times.) I own a VR610 and fixed the problem with grease. I disassembled the fan and took out the paddle wheel. I cleaned the pin and the hole both and filled the hole with grease. I used small portion of (lithium based) grease like on bicycle. The fan is noiseless since 1,5 years. :)
take a look into bios and see if the the there is a shut down at certain temp is set ..to be sure ..just restore to factory defaults ...but the best thing is to take a look and remove the settings if there is a temperature limit on ..cpu temp...its risky ..but I always let it without limit and it was ok ...
If you are planning to open the notebook make sure the cpu cooler is mounted flush and has the most possible amount of contact with the cpu for heat transfer. I don't know about yours but normally in bios you can set a fatal temperature shutdown. Try to look up what cpu you have (when you open the case) and see if maybe the temperature is set too low. Then you would be able to reset the temperature to something higher if possible and this would solve the overheating shutdown problem.
hmmm..sounds like a thermal issue....do you, by chance have it sitting flat on a hard table? You know, it's most effective to have a laptop, UP off the table, on one of those 'risers' that are available in most electronics or computer departments. Not unlike a trivet for sitting hot pots or pans on. got backup for that Acer?
