hahagu: Welcome to the windows 7 forum.

One reason that laptops shut themselves off is that the cpu heats up because of dirty fans. Have you tried to clean out
your fan by using some compressed air into the vents?

Or the intake for the fans is obstructed.

Check your pc or laptoptemperature using CPUID HWmonitor download it at HWMonitor CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
if your temperature is so high you better buy colling pad for laptop and use an electric fan for pc and face it at the cpu...
or maybe you have so many programs that are running in ur pc close some of them using task manager.
stop some programs from booting at startup using ms config open start menu>type run>open it>type msconfig>select the startup tab>uncheck what u dont use anymore

This used to happen to my gaming laptop I had. Like the person before said, its most likely got some dirty fans. However, when I had this problem I just bought a cooler. You just put it under the laptop and it helps. My laptop used to last 5 minutes before overheat. It never overheats anymore. Try a Cooler Master Notepal X2.
