It's probably the overheating alarm. If you have temperature sensors check
them. Open the case and see if that helps (because of the better airflow).
Check if the fan is turning. While the computer is off, check your CPU fan
for dust. You won't believe how much dust in can gather. I cleaned mine
recently and got rid of my overheating problems.
