Ensure No Overheating

When it comes to laptop shutting down, overheating is the first thing that comes to my mind. Because of different reasons, such as, malfunctioning fan, dust, inadequate ventilation and excessive use, heat may build up inside the system board components. When it happens, your system forces itself to shut down in order to prevent damage to your hardware. Use a CPU monitoring app such as Free RealTemp.
