Why does it turn off during gameplay?

My PS3 will randomly shut off during gameplay. I assumed that it was overheating and opened it to clean out all the dust. It still seems to be doing it no matter what I do. even after only a couple minutes of gameplay.What could the possible problems be? More importantly, how to properly diagnose it?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
