@billakarthi - please follow belwo steps to check the temperature of your CPU in order to find and resolve the issue.

- go in BIOS (set up) menu,
- Advanced
- hardware monitor
- Temperature

if temperature will be less then 60 degree then its okay
if its increasing more than that contonuously, then its a problem with the heatsink/heatsink gel/ or motherboard.

if you are using any other 3rd party hardware then also check that

Is this a laptop or a desktop?

How old is the system?

Laptops after a period of time can get dust build up in the cooling fan and are then unable to keep the CPU cool. This causes an overheat condition and the system is triggered to shutdown to prevent failure of the CPU. Desktops can have the same problem but usually take longer to build up the dust.

For a laptop when the dust gets too bad this usually requires a teardown to clean the dust. Most users do not have the tools or knowledge to take it apart with out causing damage.

Desktops can be checked fairly easily be taking the side cover off and looking at the cooling fan. Heavy dust build up shows under the fan blades and can be cleaned by using canned electronic cleaning spray or a compressor. Do not use a standard vacuum or crevice tool from one since they cause large fields of static electricity which can destroy electronic parts. Only electronics rated vacuums are safe to use on computers..
