If you can get into the bios check that the Cut off tempratures have not been lowered to say 70c the lower the temp cut off the sooner it will power off.

As above.
When you press the power button to Boot up from off you should have a fan blast before you see windows. Its like a self test to check if the fans can go to full power.

Hope that helps.

If he's been using it on his bed, or on his lap, chances are the thermal paste has dried out and it's now acting more as an insulator rather than a conductor.

It needs the heatsink removing, the old paste cleaning off and new applying.

This is something to do sooner rather than later as its cutting off to prevent damage from the heat it's getting, it'll work for so long and hen the CPU can fail.

Aye and put it on a book as the ventilation on these are crap.

I have one and it only cuts out if it gets really hot.

You should always use it on a flat surface to avoid overheating.

Don't open it up yourself as you will not get it back together and you will damage the plastic that holds the screws in, these have a common fault with the front screws coming away that secure the bottom plastic cover to the top of keyboard corners.

If you can't sort it yourself the staff in computer 64 in Moreton give a very good service, and charge reasonable prices too. I found them to be very friendly.
