Hello. There could be may things. Mainly thing for this time(summer) I guess that is the temperature. Maybe your laptop is too hot so it's shitting down when will reach temperature of xx C. First check your tepmeratures with HW Monitor. Install it and post screenshot from that window.

Insufficient Data.

What exactly are you doing when this happens? Do you get any error messages before or after the shutdown? Does it shut down and stay off - shut down and restart windows - shutdown and reboot? Does it happen randomly or at a set amount of time?

The more detail you give to describe your problem the better help we can give.

When this happens are you running on battery power or plugged in?

Based upon what you describe I must agree with StalkeR - sounds like an overheating issue.

Check your operating temps as suggested, but you will most likely need to clean that laptop out to get it cooling again properly.

So it sounds like overheating problem. We are waiting for screenshot from temperatures. Also check out the link from the member above me,and clean your fan from dust. But be careful to don't damage anything ! If you can't do that,go to some service to do that for you.
