is my intel core i3 350m processor faulty?

I have a toshiba satelite a665-s6050 . it runs on an intel core i3 350m 2.27 ghz . eversince february i have not been able to run anything for more than two minutes on all four cores without the laptop just going off suddenly (screen blacks out and i can hear both cpu and fan stop running). i have to go into bios and disable multi core processing just to keep the laptop running. is this a cpu problem? has the processor been damaged? as even in single core processor mode i still cant run heavy programs like photoshop call of duty fifa without the laptop going off suddenly. please help.

    im guessing the laptop gets very hot as well?
    if it does get very hot then
    try downloading hwmonitor @
    Unzip the file. Run the program. Post the results of the temperatures it says under the i3-350m processor.
