Answers :

Could very well be a heat problem. You may have an accumulation of dust and dirt inside your laptop case. Laptops don't have much room for air circulation and even a small amount of dust and dirt buildup can cause random shutdowns to keep the motherboard from overheating. Using some compressed air in a can, blow out all of the dust and see if that helps. You may need to take it to a computer repair shop to have them open up the case and give it a good cleaning. They will be able to wipe all the fan blades clean and help with other dust areas. I don't recommend you trying to open the laptop case by yourself because it can be extremely tricky and something might get broken. Hope this helps.
