I had same problem with a HP Pavillion ZD-7000. Turned out to be dust had accumulated on the cpu making it run hot. Get a can of the dust off high pressure air and blow it into the fan intakes and output vents. Cleared my problem right up.
This Could be a System Processer failure...
Try to Remove everything from the PC, Including Battery or Power surge f you have connected in between te Power socket & PC.
then Try to turn it on.
If the Problem Exists then the comp needs Serviced at the service center.

I would remove the heatsink and fan, clean the processor surfaces with methylated spirit or isopropanol, use new heatsink compound and that should fix your issue. Yes yes, heatsink pipe should get hot!
If you say that fans gives out loud swirling sound, i can suggest you update your bios because it is the one responsible for minimizing the noiseand making the fans swirl.
Possible that system is shutting down because fans might be shutting down as well.
You can also try to blow out some air on the vents because that is usually where your fans are, this will help clean out fans.
Questions: Does your computer restarts when it shutsdown automatically? if it is there might be a bluescreen error going on and bluescreen can either be a problem with software or hardware. A lot of troubleshooting needs to be done to isolate. Do the first solution that i have given you then answer my questions for further troubleshooting
The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).
Solution: If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.
It could be overheating, and shutting itself down, to avoid heat-related damage.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC adapter.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed air, and give your computer a "blow-job" -- shooting compressed air everywhere "inside" your laptop, to remove dust.
The dust is acting as an insulator, preventing your computer's fans from cooling itself.
Or, take your laptop to a qualified computer technician, for more trouble-shooting.
Could me many things. Let's think. I installed an antivirus once that would get stuck scanning some file, the CPU-- the main processor in the latop-- would go to 100% and would get so hot that the fans would go crazy cooling it down. It could easily shut down if left on all day from heat.
Another laptop I had- I read on the support boards (it would get hot and the fans would be very loud) that the thermal last between the CPU fan and the CPU would degrade, causing the heat dissipation to decrease-- the heat of teh CPU was not being wicked away through the paste to the CPU fan. Boom- the laptops would shut down from too much heat.
Did you install any new software lately? If no, it could be a hardware problem like I mentioned above.
Third, a friend of mine had a gateway laptop that would get very hot-- he could hardly use it. It was a loose/faulty graphics card that would get very got, causing teh fans to go on, and then the computer to **** down.
Many of these hardware problems are tough to solve over email like this because you need technical knowledge. Further, most of these require the unit to be sent in to fix, really, especially in the case of laptops which are tougher even to get at than desktops.
Call the manufacturer, as they might be able to talk you through a fix or sending it in. Even if it costs $130 bucks, it's still not the 500-600 you need for a new computer...
try starting in safe mode and see if it does it still. It could be that you have some background program like Windows update or that new Windows active search function, which spends copious amounts of processor time cataloging your entire computer. Some anti-virus programs will do the same and eat up processor time. I'd try shutting down as many of these background processes to see what (or what combination) is causing the problem.
If this doesn't work, you might have a bad connection with your heatsink, which would cause your computer to stay at or your fan might be going bad, causing it to get really loud.
I'm not going to go into the possibility of it being used on a lap or bed or carpet where the fan intake vent is getting blocked. I know you've eliminated this as a possibility. Right?
