Windows 7 notebook turn off by itself, how to check if it is due to CPU being too hot?

I have a Dell Studio 15 notebook, and it just started turning off by itself yesterday.

"Try SpeedFan, it was made for this stuff :)

The turning off is not done in software, it's an emergency, hopefully-should-never-happen, last-ditch total cut-off of power by your motherboard."

IF the problem is related to the CPU temperature and IF the computer turns off automatically (and i mean cutting off as opposed to initiating the regular shutdown procedure) as a protective measure, then you cannot influence this behaviour through the operating system. this is controlled at BIOS level.
