Answers :

Does the battery get very hot? If so try running the laptop with it removed! This problem might also caused by a faulty heat sensor on the motherboard. Given the current cost of new laptops I wouldn't spend a lot of money on any repair options, but you could invest in a "laptop cooler" or chill mat see this link
