Are you doing anything in particular when it cuts out? Playing games, watching videos, etc?

If you're playing games or watching videos, download HWMonitor from CPUID and post a screenshot of the temps after you've been playing for a while.

Also, post your specs. If its a prebuilt system, then just go ahead and post the brand/model of the system.

Please post the model # as well so that we can see the specs.

When you say it cuts out, what exactly do you mean? Does it turn off completely? Does the screen just shut off? When it "cuts out" are any fans/lights still on or running?

It's probably overheating, Does it feel hot to the touch?
