Dell latitude d630 shuts down by itself after sometime. It looks like the overheating of cpu is switching off laptop. And I have to wait for sometime to again switch on. I have changed to cooling fan's power supply to a usb port (2 wire). Still facing same issue. Kindly assist.
Open the chassis and clean the airvents and the fan assembly with a small vacuum cleaner or a can of compressed air. Reapply the thermal grease for the heatsink.
If the issue is not resolved, replace the fan assembly and check.

Based on your description, am not sure if you are using a notebook cooling pad or not, if not, then consider getting a notebook cooling pad - some offers on Amazon - http://amzn.to/28YYonl
If the issue persists even after replacing the fan assembly, then you might need to replace the motherboard.
You could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ - however, I am not sure if we still have the parts required for this system model as it considered obsolete.
You could also order the parts here.
