How about the canned air work and fan test?

If the CMOS battery was that old it may be time to get inside a little with canned air. What is canned air and use has so many YouTubes but be sure not to spin the fans to 10,000 RPM.

And be sure to use a cooling pad, even a passive one helps.

CMOS battery was changed last year..bought another for spare but did not use it

I try to use the canned air on the 1st of the month.

That way if I skip a month every now and then, no big deal. What I see more often is the owner never did the work. I'm not talking about where we open up the laptop but just hitting the vents with canned air many times a year can help avoid the big deep cleaning job and repair counters.

Tried a few times but it stills shuts off when it feels like it...5 times this morning

See if it's in warranty

And if not, time to try a deep cleaning with an extra step. Remove the heat sinks and replace all old heatsink compound. Button it up and test. If that fails and all the fans work like new the fix is a new motherboard.
