It could be that the hardware is overheating. Do you hear that fans moving properly? can you open the computer to verify that you dont have a fan partially spinning or some other obstruction? It could also be that the heat sink over the CPU is full of dust, not seated well, etc..

How old your machine ? if more than a couple of year or more, probably it caused by dust in the cooling system. Be sure your laptop being serviced every one or two year usage.
