First, start by taking the fan and heat sink out and cleaning them. Dust build up can cause overheating. Also check the fan for hairs or carpet fibers that have gotten wound in it, I've had fans stop working due to this. Then put it back together and check to see if the fan is coming on and running in regular intervals. If it's not it will need replaced. If it is, then there may be a malfunction with the processor or a short on the motherboard.

try replacing the thermal grease on your cpu.
the BIOS have a protection that restart or shut down the computer/laptop when the cpu get to hot.
You can also check if the power suply is working in parameters

You should look for the following answers.
(1) Are you operating your laptop in a in a hot and dusty environment (If yes you should know that computers do not like hot and dusty environments and they shut down to avoid a complete burn out of the machine more over the dust particles also can destroy the hardware and block internal fan ventilation ducts in between the CPU and the fan).
(2) When the your laptop PC shuts down place your hand underneath the laptop and try to feel hot spots. If you find areas unusually heated then this is the main cause of the shut down.
(3) If just after the shut down and a good usage the Laptop is cool then underneath than overheating shut down might not be the case.
If you determined that heating is the cause and you cannot change your environment than you should look for other heavy duty laptops that are robustly designed for hot environments.
I do not think that resting the BIOS can cause this.

Gets to hot and keeps shutting down


1. Check to make sure the air vents are dust free.
2. Check to make sure the fan is working.
3. If it is dust free and you can feel the fan working, then you may need to reapply new thermal compound between the heatsink and the cpu. This involves removing various components on the computer such as the power switch cover, the keyboard, and possibly the lcd screen.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Laptop shutting off


There might be a setting in the BIOS that shuts down the computer when the processor gets too hot. so, getting better cooling or turning off the setting will stop it. but, if you disable the setting, the Processor could overheat and explode.

Computer Keeps Shuting Off/Battery is Useless


Try running a good malware program like AdAware. Often these spyware programs can driver your processor to 100%, causing it to heat up too much and shutting things down. Once you have the anit-spyware loaded, bring your system up in safe mode. This will allow the spyware to search the hidden partitions on your fd, along with the rest of the disk.
