Default HELP! Online diagnostics

My laptop is experiencing some hardware problem. It keeps suddenly turning off quite often and usually I have to wait at least 1 hour to start it to work again. Is there any online diagnostics program that can scan my PC to find out the exact hardware problem it has? Somebody please?!

This is a pretty vague, generic post... I hope it's not in preparation to spamming.

It could be accumulation of dust on the cooler fins causing the computer to overheat. Try to get the dust out of the fins of your computer with a vacuum cleaner. You could try to blow the dust away with compressed air. You will find the fins at on the side or on the underside of the back of your computer.

This is not a good idea. The canned air works better and is safer... less static. Keep the vac in the air so you don't get blasted by dust in the face but dont get it close to the computer.
