Have her download Speed Fan, install it, and run it to monitor voltages and temperatures. She can configure this to display the CPU temperature in the system tray. Please post back with the los temps (at startup) and the highest temperature she sees before it shuts down.
She can also monitor the Power Supply voltages with this application...they should be within .5 volts of the listed voltage and stay pretty steady.

Heat is more than likely the culprit here.
The HDO temp is the Hard Drive...31 degrees is acceptable. However, Temp 1 is the CPU and, at 70 degrees, is way too hot. There are two things to do at this point...clean the CPU cooler (and make sure the CPU fan is running) and look into a laptop cooler (usually available wherever they sell laptops). She can check to see if the fans are running with the Speed Fan application she downloaded...the fan rpm should be listed in the pane to the left of the temps.

Glad to help!
Notebook coolers typically are low-rise, plastic or metal-faced pedestals on which your notebook sits. They are equipped with a fan or two inside, which serves to draw hot air away from under your notebook, and thus promote a cooler operating environment. Usually efficient enough to drop up to 15 degrees the operating temperature, notebook coolers however require power for its fans and would typically draw its power off your notebook's USB ports. This could somewhat decrease your notebook's battery operating time, but so far have proven to be negligible for many users. If the cooler lowers the CPU temperature in your notebook, performance should improve rather than decline.
