There can be several causes to this, but it sounds like it is heat related and that you were on the right track with trying to remove dust. I would want to be SURE that all the dust is out of this computer, all fans are operating, and air is free to move in, out, and around this computer. Sometimes that is all it takes. But if you have already done all of that in a thorough way and you still have the shutting down issue, then perhaps we should look elsewhere for the source of the problem.
I would strongly recommend using a can of compressed air that you can buy at any computer or office supply store, not the hair dryer.
Let us know.
