    It appears that your computer could be overheating and shuts down to protect itself. Get yourself a can of compressed air and with computer shut off and unplugged remove the cover or side panel and blow all the dust from the inside. Pay close attention to the small CPU fan and aluminium heat sink.

    When everything is clean, plug in the computer and start it. Look around inside to make sure all of the fans are running. Any fans not running will need to be replaced.
