    I've had this problem for quite a long time now and it's really annoying. Back then it would normally boot but then it started to shut down upon boot. When I booted it up again, it said something about it failing to boot so I reformatted and installed Windows 10. After reinstalling, I still have the problem and it's getting unbearable. If it does boot successfully, after 5 minutes it just randomly shuts down again.

    Any help would be great.

    It doesn't really tick at all. Perhaps it was just a bad install

    maybe. to be sure use the windows media creation tool from another computer and write it to a freshly formated flash drive

    If it was due to the HDD, you would be seeing blue screens, slowdowns, and crashes. Sudden shutdowns sounds more like power issues or temperature issues.

    I had a problem with windows 10 shutting down at boot then a reboot would work properly, I don't know if you have this exact problem but mine was caused by having fast boot enabled by windows and disabled in bios, disabling it in windows fixed the problem for me, but I don't know if you have the same problem but its worth a try.

    Well I do use a cooler for the said laptop so that may be that
    I've read that a few moments ago and I'll try that ASAP.

    Alright, I've eventually fixed the problem by doing the steps here. Everything seems to be fine for now.
