    Even when mains powered?

    Can you be using it at the time it goes off?

    Does it just go off, or does windows shutdown properly?

    Yes. It doesn't matter battery or main power.
    Windows is not shutdown, just go off.

    It looks like overheating.
    But I've got no idea :(
    It is 13 months old laptop :(

    When my daughter's Dell does this, I take it outside and blow the dust
    out of the fan and cooling vents. Works fine after this.

    Does it restart automatically or stay shut down? If it restarts
    automatically, you could have a bad memory problem causing a
    spontaneous reboot.

    There's a memory tester at http://www.memtest.org/ that can tell you
    if this is an issue.

    Not, it doesn't restart. It stay sthut down, and after 20 mins I can
    use it again.

    I will try with vacuum cleaner.
    I hope it will help.
