Check the fan to see if it is actually working. It should have several wires that go from the fan unit to a connector on the motherboard. Make sure that they are plugged in and not cut, frayed etc. If the fan is not working, get it replaced ASAP!! You could fry your CPU, that is why it shuts down so quickly. You can kill the CPU in seconds if you have no heat sink on it; the heat sink may be the only thing saving you from meltdown!
