if its shutting down unless its on top of a air conditioner, thats a sure sign of overheating, if the fan never kicks on while its running without an air conditioner, and it shuts down, then the fan is not working. At this point you need a fan replacement, if you feel safe doing it yourself you can follow the directions in the youtube video provided above, if not, you can take it into a computer store and have them do it for you.
