Acer Aspire One Laptop issue with shutdown

Hello, and once again I hope you can help out a issue of my friend.
Acer Aspire One ZG5
Intel Atoms 1.6 Ghz N270
HDD most likely a disk type, makes click when shutdown
Its a netbook, so there is NO CD/DVD DRIVE
So, the main issue is that the laptop shutdown strangely after boot and log in after a minute or more. Checking into safe mode, last known configuration, and diagnostic mode, all have failed and occurred the same affect as a normal boot up. Heating might be an issue I've read around because I hear no fan inside the laptop, but as well I've place a desk fan under the laptop (and it is still cool, even if there wasn't one).
The shutdown would be described like this: boot up, few minutes of activity, immediate shutdown with the clacking sound(hard drive?) turning off and no activity. I currently hear no fan (that silent or jammed?) and is cool.
My question: What could this issue be? Most likely hardware? Could I fix this issue without risking the warranty?
I'd like not take any dangerous risk with his permission because he never told me its onto warranty, and as well I've have not been provided with any recovery media (there is no way I can place a CD drive into it anyway).
Thank you for your help if solve it.
