Laptop turns off suddenly? Computers may not be smarter than people, but
they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before
overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage.
If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed.
Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.
The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.
Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.

You can replace the fan if you know how to do so but take it to a qualified technician and they will be able to sort it out for you and it should be that expensive
