Why my laptop shuts off?


A few months ago my computer laptop would simply shut off with no warning at all. It made some grinding sounds when booting up so I took it to a local computer store. They said that I needed a new hard drive and a new cooling fan. So I did that, and $600.00 later the computer was running well. Now, two months later the computer has started spontaneously shutting down without any notice. I keep it plugged in all of the time so the battery is fully charged. I assume it is a heating problem again, but there are no grinding sounds and the fan seems to be working. Do you have any ideas on what it could be or what I can do to fix the problem?

I think the problem is the power supply or the fan on the proccessor is not working wich then cause the PC to over heat
