When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem 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 withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

Power pack connection problem


Ok, you need to obtain another PSU, or you run the risk of ruining your laptop for good. I suspect, the cable,where it goes into, the socket, is fractured. In any event you DO need a correctly fitting adapter. Laptops can run very very hot, I personally experience that frequently. If at all worried, get a "Laptop Cooler Pad" they are an inexpensive."Tray" the laptop sits in, that has extra cooling fans to cool the entire thing down, they work very well. As for any adapter getting hot, they all do get quite hot, always ensure that a clear flow of air is all round the PSU, too.

SONY VGNFJ270 LAPTOP BECOMES HOT AND GIVES LOT OF NOISE


If the fan is noisy and the laptop is running hot, then most likely the fan is faulty and spinning slowly. Therefore the fan is not providing sufficent air flow to cool the laptop's CPU. The fan needs to be replaced and possibly the heatsink assembly needs cleaned to remove dust buildup.

If the lapotp is shutting down from getting to hot then it is an issue, but just getting hot is what laptop's are good at.
