Thank you
Hello,

Try this 1

Clean all the vents, blow out with canned air.

Remove the power adapter and the battery from your laptop. Open the laptop

case to access the CPU Fan and the heat sink. Remove all the dust from the Fan

and also from the heat sink. Never run your laptop on bag & bed. Sides, back and

bottom must be clear.

If possible remove the old thermal paste from the CPU and apply a new thermal

paste for better heat conductivity.

Good Luck

Thank you, jack4rall 6

Could be your laptop is getting too hot. It will switch off then.
Make sure that when you are working on it, you do not block the outlet for the hot air.

It's true that it gets hot but I put it on a fan.
Why does it do this?
A question of safety?

Yes it is. Most people would prefer a computer to shut down rather than to burn down.
I am not sure what you mean by "I put it on a fan". But if that does not allow the laptop to get rid of it's internal heat it will still shut down.
A laptop can get hotter when on the power adapter. Try and use it on battery alone to see if it will stay on longer.
