You've probably either solved the problem or have given up by now, but I have a question. After the laptop shuts down do you have to press the power button twice to get it to turn back on? If so it is likely a thermal issue, and for such an event to occur so quickly is very odd. It's probably that the board is shot, but I have encountered two laptops that had the same symptoms. The problem was that the heat exchanger separated form the die. Pretty crazy, although some careful cleaning , application of silver paste, and tightening some screws yielded spectacular results.
