Answers :

You have an option here to check what the problem is....first I would like you to get a can of compressed air from an office supply store that is used for blowing the dust out of electronics. Blow the dust and dirt out of the vents on the side, bottom and rear of the laptop. I then would like you to run the laptop on the AC adapter only to see if the ac adapter is the problem. So take the battery out and run the laptop just on the AC adapter. If it shuts down, put the battery in and remove the AC adapter....if the machine continues to operate, the problem is AC adapter. It is most likely failing after a period of time causing an unstable power source and sgutting the laptop down....or if it fails on just battery too, then I would take off the panel access door to the processor and heatsink, remove the screws to the heatsink and carefully remove it and check that there is a layer of "thermal grease" on the two processor chips. If not, get some thermal grease and apply a very small amount and spread it evenly on the chip surface. Replace the heatsink and try to power it up.
