Hey, so i have had this problem for about 4-5 months where my laptop can run for 5 mins before turning off. it doesn't shut down, it just turns off which makes me think the battery may be playing up but I don't know for sure. I'm open to any suggestions but please keep in mind I don't have a lot of money to go and buy new parts and what not.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

My first thought out be overheating which isn't uncommon with laptops. Get some canned air and give the air vents a good blast out as they may be getting clogged up with dust, this stops hot air being dispelled and therefore the machine heats up.

If you can, download and install HWMonitor (its small and free) and run that as soon as the laptop starts up, have a look at the temperatures it reports.
