Random shutdowns can be related to a number of things, but if it was a desktop I would guess you may have a bricked operating system.

Considering its a laptop and the symptoms you suggest, I'd say overheating is your problem. Unfortunately if the laptop is notorious for failing chips there isn't much you can do about that, getting it repaired will cost more than it is worth.

For now I would think of investing in a laptop cooler. This may allow you to run cpu intensive programs a bit longer. Its possible that damage may have occurred that is irreparable. But it can't hurt.

You're ultimately going to be better off buying a new machine. I recommend you read reviews carefully before purchasing. here's a link or two.

Also I would check into a longer warranty if it isn't too expensive to extend.
