Hello cecil374, Usually when this occurs, the first thing that comes to mind is a heat issue.
I would disconnect the power cord, and remove the panel of the case and clean the inside of the case, paying particular attention to the heatsink/fan assembly of the processor.
You may want to acquire some canned compressed air to remove the dust/dirt from the heatsink/fan assembly.
Then reinstall the side panel, and connect the power cord and see if this resolves the shutdown issue.
