right guys after the problem i had last weekend with this newish laptop ive bought(i replaced the hard drive)my daughter has just informed me that when shes listening to some music on windows media player(only software on the laptop for music)after around 10-15 mins the laptop shuts off with no warnings,also happens when shes useing microsfot word.but if shes playing a game or doing anything else its ok.

does anyone have any ideas on what the problem is.

oh and please dont say tell her not to use media player or word lol
Even using mains power you need to check power options, you might find the hdd turns off after 20min or system hibernates etc
As for the laptop getting hot, this will happen if it is on mains power, check air vents are clear and that the fan occasionaly runs
Also this is how you check the 'event viewer'.

To open Event Viewer, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click

I haven't got a clue what to do then or what to look for!
