No, your OS said it shut down your computer to prevent damage. It's not generic to all PCs. You have to filter (censor, really) messages according to their sources, and read up on the OS and other software you use to see what might have been meant. For example if a USA law is passed called the 'Child Consumption Elimination Act,' it actually means that it's legally the child's fault if something eats it, not that juvenile pneumonias are being prevented.
Moreover, if something were wrong enough to fix, you would need to cite the source and some details of the error message or indications you got.

PC get shutdown automatically

It can happen in several cases. Like:1. If your processors cooling fan does not run properly or stops running , your processor gets over heated and will automatically shutdown to prevent damage of your motherboard. In this case check this first, If is runs but not seem so smooth, just clean it- dust can jam the cooling fan.

2.If your heat sink under the cooling fan is not perfectly fit on the processor, cooling fan will not able to cool it and will result your machine shutdown!

3. In case of Bad power supply, it can also happen. Check your power supply.

4.If your machine have defected RAM or became defected, it may happen. In this case you may have blue screen with message before shutdown your machine.

5. If you have operating system of Microsoft Windows, please check your hard drive for virus. Virus can shutdown machine with a common period of time! Damaged OS which occurs often in windows operating system also can force to shutdown machine.
Please check which one is in your case. Please mention problem details like something unfamiliar for further query.

Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) Important Info

When you get a Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) on your computer this can be very frustrating. Below is the info you need to get from a BSOD because the way that Microsoft words the message a lot of people miss the real important parts. With the right information this will helps tech support help you address your problem quickly.

The first thing to look at is the error message. A lot of times you will get a message like the one below that states "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA". In the case of this BSOD the error screen the error code is a generic one of 0x00000050 so we have to rely on message that tells us that the problem was with the memory or the page file.

The next thing to look at is the error code. Note you really do not need the info between the parentheses for standard trouble shooting.
So with both pieces info this will help tech support figure out where the issue is at and where to troubleshoot.

Note the file name that the BSOD list normally is not important in troubleshooting the in most cases it just point to the point where Windows had the problem.

Your hard drive is corrupted - virus, bad driver file, etc... You may need to reformat and re-install Windows or operating system. Before you do that, remove the harddrive and "slave" it on another computer to backup you data. The other computer should be able to discover the corrupted harddrive allowing you to do the backup. Then you can proceed with the repair or reformat.

When I start up my HP Pavilion computer it said CPU fan failure-shut down. Would the problem be the fan on the motherboard or the fan on the case?

This would be the fan on the motherboard (CPU), not the Power Supply Unit fan on the case. It may be that it is simply clogged with dust. The PC will shutdown as a precaution to prevent damage to the CPU if the fan has not started or if the CPU begins to overheat as a result of a failed or poorly performing fan.

After my dell Optiplex 760 is on for an hour or so, it starts ticking from the front fan over over the microprocessor. After it does that for a while it then will give a long tone that will not go away...

My guess: your computer is over-heating, and the "tick-tick" is your notification that it is over-heating.
When it gets "too-hot", it automatically shuts-down, to prevent fatal damage.

Clean the dust from inside your computer, and ensure that the fans are spinning at their "full" speed.

Regarding your problem it is clear that when you unplug the power cord to the power source the computer shutdown itself therefore the problem is in your battery. So my recommendation please replace your battery with an operational one to prevent any further damage of your computer due to power issue. The worst thing it can give to your computer is it can damage the board and eventually it will damage the entire computer if you will not replace the defective battery.
