The fan might be bad, that you can replace But you may need a new computer, it seems like the one you have now is wearing out If it is taking a few hours to restart and the fans stay on when it shuts down itself then, you should definitely get it checked, but sounds more like u need a update Get a new fan, check if the power supply is fine and you should be fine.
