    With a week of difference my laptop turn off by itself.

    Is not heat or warm. I recently change the fan . Asus X555LD.
    No viruses.
    I think is the battery.

    What are the possible causes ?

    Best Regards

    more info like

    how old is the battery ?
    does it power off if charging ?
    make & model of laptop ?
    was it charging during a thunder storm ?

    sometimes useful, disconnect battery and shake near your ear, does it rattle

    it would appear you are correct about the battery.
    as manufactures only guarantee stuff for about a year (some longer), one thing well worth trying is a "soft reset"

    power off, remove battery, press and hold the power button for 60 seconds, release, replace battery, apply power, wait a minute then turn on

    if that fails, yes, you need a new battery, also consider replacing the PSU as manufacturers may change specs, unless you get a "compatible" battery (usually cheaper too)
