try taking out the battery and using just the ac power and see if it still gets that hot and cuts off to rule out battery problems. Also, how old is this laptop?

Is the laptops CPU fan working properly? You should be able to feel the airflow freely. If is seems weak and you can't really feel the air coming out, then your CPU could be overheating and you need to clean that fan out.

Take that notebook apart and use canned air to spray out the components.

i upgraded the RAM about 6 months back but the turning off and over heating started just recently so i dont think its that... and right now im on ac power, its doing better but the fan still kicks into high gear every like 5 mins and stays on for about 2 minutes or more... that the only way im able to tell the fan is working right, it knows its high and low gears...
