How can I stop my Dell Inspiron 15R from shutting down?

I am using Dell Inspiron 15R. This laptop becomes too hot after using 30 minutes. If I use certain programes like Google Maps, suddenly it shut down without any notification. What is the solution?

    Apparently seems like your laptop is facing heating problem & its because your cooling system including fan inst working properly. You need to check if your fan is running at adequate speed and also there aren't any dust particles stuck in head sink on either side of your laptop. All you need to do is just to use an air blower and clean the fins of your heat sinks to make the air flow properly. Good Luck

    well security settings (self protecting mechanism) do this to avoid problems when the temperature reache certain limit shutdown process is initiated, hard drive, cpu...can do this shutdown mechanism. You have to find out which component is becoming too hot. you can use HWmonitor to check temperatures

      were you able to solve the problem?

    Yes, it sounds like an overheating issue. Definitely try to clear out dust and debris using a can of electronics-grade compressed air, but do not put the nozzle directly into the vents since moisture can get inside, or the CPU cooling fan can spin too fast and wind up damaging the ball bearings. Do not use a vacuum to try to suck out any dust or debris as this may cause static electricity and fry your motherboard or other hardware. Also, check to make sure that the power settings are set for active cooling instead of passive cooling (active uses the CPU fan to cool your system, passive tries to use normal air cooling to reduce power usage). If there is excessive fan noise, you may need to have the CPU fan replaced before serious and permanent damage occurs. Replacing the thermal paste is also a good option since the pirate can deteriorate after a period of time.

    Depending on the age of the laptop it could be a clogged heat sink, which a squirt of compressed air into the vent on the side will cure. This also could be a nonworking fan or a fan with the bearings going out. The systems CPU might need more thermal grease. If there is a integrated gpu (graphic possessor unit) might need thermal paste.
