Windows 7: While formatting pendrive suddenly my laptop stopped working

Is it overheating? This can cause a laptop to shut down. Make sure the vents are clean and clear, elevated if necessary to get plenty of air under and in them. You may be able to monitor the temps in BIOS setup, or if you can get it installed by installing Core Temp to place readings in the System Tray.

Did the other Dell Diagnostics pass, just the hard drive fail? Try running them again to confirm the diagnosis.

Consider an SSD which is the best upgrade one can get, even faster than buying a new high-end PC. You can google a video for replacing your PC model's hard drive with an SSD or another HD.
