Macbook Air, Randomly Shutting Down

I have a problem, and anyone on here who is kind enough to help me out, THANK YOU.
okay so, i got a macbook air a year or too ago, but here is the funny part, on the way to a soccer game, i actually saw it on the shoulder of the highway i was on, stopped and picked it up. it was in decent shape. my dad works in IT and got a power cord, and reset everything so i could use it. It ran great. at first the camera didnt work, but then all of a sudden it came back on, its often rackety about things , but the last few months i havent had huge problems.
Now, any time i upload a picture to picnik, and after editing it try to save it, my screen goes grey, and it says i need to power it off..
is this because of it getting possibly dropped? or is it something else? i would really appreciate help on this. and even when i have alot of pages pulled up and im on facebook and things like that itll just tell me to shut it off.
any advice on how to fix this?

I would open it up and see what it looks like in there. One thing to look for is the battery connections - unplug and replug those. Also, it is said that there are some color treated stickers on the mobo that turn color when exposed to water - so check that as well. Finally, give both power connectors a good scrub with a clean dry toothbrush to remove any fine dirt, grit, etc.2011 MacBook Pro 13" i5, 8/300 gig 27" + 23" disp
