Two possibilities come to mind.

1: The laptop is overheating. A 2 year old lap top probably needs a thorough cleaning. Google your model and cleaning to find the proper procedure.

2: Bad laptop battery. You can test this, assuming your laptop can run without a battery, by removing the battery and trying it.

Both of these have happened on my Asus laptop.
