Could be many things

Hardware Issue
Software Issue

Many 'lap pads' block the cooling vents of the laptop, so the device may be overheating.

Try running the device on a desktop surface so that cooling air can circulate under the unit.

Sounds more like a Software Issue than a Hardware

So have you checked for Infections?

Not only Virus but Root Kits and Malware need to be checked here and ideally in Safe Mode.
