Computer shuts down after 10-15 minutes

My computer seems to work fine but when i turn it on I can only use it for 10 - 15 minutes before it shuts down.  It just goes black and turns off.  Could this be a problem with overheating?  The fan has been making a lot of noise and sounds like it might be out of balance.

Re: Computer shuts down after 10-15 minutes

Are you using a desktop tower? If so , where are you placing the tower for use , is it able to breath properly? I know a lot of people who think 3 to 4 inches of space is enough for a CPU to breath but in the end it can cause some bad problems such as dust buildup and overheating.
