Toshiba L500 shutting down problem


I have been using Fedora Core 13 on my L500 Toshiba Laptop. Recently i noticed that my laptop become very hot and it shut down instantly. When i use windows on the same laptop every thing works well but when i used linux this problem arises.

Can any one help me to address this problem? I would be very grateful for any assistance.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like dust is clogging the air intake. Get some canned compressed air and blast the air intake near the CPU.
