Check your power settings in the control panel, check that the keyboard has no buttons that can cause shutdown.
Check that your fans are working, and then check the event logs to see what has been happening...

CPU will start and after 1 minute it will automatically shut down? What is the problem of my CPU.

The problem most likely a thermal overload, the CPU shuts down when it over heats and will not boot up again until it has cooled down. If this problem is not fixed the the CPU will eventually fail. This problem is usually caused by a faulty CPU fan.
Replace the faulty fan and remove the dust from the heat sink

Window shut down when scanning.

That is mainly caused by your laptop CPU heat too hot. Just clean the CPU fan and dip some lubricant oil into the CPU fan. Then buy a laptop cooling stand.

Automatically shut down of my lap top

Try the RAM modules one at a time. See if system run normally one one but not the other. If no change, then the system is most likely not cooling properly and when under load it crashes. If that is the case, a CPU Heatsink/Cooling fan might resolve. If still no go, then motherboard

Random shut downs.

Random shutdowns are normally caused by your computer overheating. The CPU has a protect mechanism that automatically shuts down when it reaches a certain temp so it does not damage the CPU. If you are computer savvy you can download a program called HWinfo or check your BIOS for CPU temperature readings as it runs..otherwise take it to a technician, however, as I always recommend have the technician show you the increased tempature before agreeing to any hardware fixes..if you have any questions let me know. Pls rate this solution.
