    Battery or AC power? Have you tested using both?

    Some models won't function without the battery.

    Having said that, common causes: 1) it's dirty and overheating 2) the heatsink/fan is loose/faulty and it's over heating, or 3) there is a hardware fault, likely motherboard/power related.
