If it starts giving trouble after being used a while then it is probably heat build-up. Make certain that the fan is not clogged with dirt and dust and that you use the machine on a flat surface so that air can actually get to the intake grill. Laptops they may be called but the worst place to use them is actually on your lap as it restricts air flow.
