Its looking like the "over temperature cut out" maybe is operating to shut down the machine when the internal temperatures rise above a certain preset figure
The idea behind the temperature cut out is to close down your machine when the temperature rises above a critical level in order to prevent overheating damage to sensitive internal parts CPU etc.
Temperature rise beyond normal levels is common with a 3 year old laptop...and some a lot younger.... to cool the inner parts of the computer outside air is drawn in and circulated by the fan around the CPU and heat sink and associated cooling pipes and then exhausted by the vents back into the room atmosphere.
Normally this works well and keeps temps within range however air that is drawn into the computer contains microscopic elements, fbres, dust, pollen dog cat or human skin debris! and many other things.....we can't see it but its there..... these particulates "settle" within the internal parts of the computer building up over a period of time to create a "blanket" that prevents the cooler air from reaching the hot parts....... and I think this maybe the problem you experience....
The beep code when your computer shuts down may confirm this.....
A small investment in an "air duster" (a can of low pressure, but nevertheless compressed purified air ) specifically used for the cleaning of computers might be wise..... be sure to blow out the air vents and fan areas in the direction of air flow to start off with.......
Here's a link for a temperature monitor
If the temps are still too high then its a strip down and internal clean and maybe fan replacement/lubrication that will be needed....
Any work on a laptop that involves a degree of dismantling is bound to be relatively expensive.......
Even in the best equipped workshops with technicians that know their stuff......brittle plastic parts can break...when dismantling and extra time is taken either ordering replacement parts (when available....) or more likely "supergluing" them back together again....!
Good luck and let us know how you get on
