It is ironic that these portable computers are called laptops. It is not a good idea to use one sitting in your lap. The airflow is restricted.

When Windows is improperly shutdown as happens in your case it will give you those boot choices. That is normal under the circumstances.

Try downloading a monitoring utility like speedfan to see what the system and CPU temperatures are when in use. Get speed fan at the link below.

Clean the fan and apply Artic Silver termal compound on the processors. It's shutting down because of overheating. I had the same problem with my acer laptop and this fixed the problem.
