    If you noticed it heats up, this is surely the cause. But what heats up? If it's the CPU, replace the fan and the heatsink with better ones that will match the type and speed of your CPU. If it's the RAM, replace it or install a fan near it on the case. If it's the hard disk, install a fan near it or replace it if it started to make "suspect" noises.

    have you checked the fan in the computer's power supply and the fan above the processor inside the computer? They should be replaced immediately if any one of them is not functioning otherwise it can damage the components

    Also, make sure you do not have it set to hibernate mode. Make sure you shut it down properly and reboot.
