Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5720-6661 Notebook PC ?

Acer Laptop runs but shuts off suddenly

\015 I've had an Acer 6930 laptop for almost a year. I had the two Usb ports go bad on the right side and got a BSOD stop error while burning a Dvd. Sent to Temple repair. They replaced main board and hard drive (unfortunately.) Computer runs now but turns off suddenly for no reason after 2 - 10 minutes. I have tried only on cord or battery (both battery and cord work fine.) Computer will even turn off just running BIOS or in safe mode.I'm thinking from what I've read on this site possibly three problems:1. Power button is shuttting down computer. I had to power off the computer a lot by holding down power button. Computer failed to go into sleep mode often. It would turn off the screen - leaving me no other option.2. When Temple put computer together, some part not hooked up properly3. Overheating problem - computer always ran hot especially in the lower left corner of the keyboard\015

Answers :

\015\012i suggest return to your service provider and have them check again, it could probably cause by, the fan isnt plug or there is a lot ob obstruction to exhaust that tned to build up heat around your pc

The reason for the sudden shut down of your computer is because of overheating of the 'case', where the CPU is mounted. Overheating can be due to dust accumulation on the heat sink, which prevents dissipation of heat. The possible solution to combat overheating issue is to keep the laptop dust free by cleaning out debris at the vents frequently. Note that a laptop has a much smaller cooling area in comparison with desktops and hence laptops tend to accumulate dust a lot quicker than desktops. This is because all the dust/debris, in the case of laptops, accumulate in the cooling fins.

Laptop Overheating My laptop (Acer Aspire 5100-3357) which I bought just less than a year ago started overheating a few months ago. I didn't know why every time I left it on it was off when I came back, and then one time I was there when it happened. It seems to only happen when the screen is closed, but it will be running fine and then suddenly make a strange beep and shut off. It can't be turned back on for an hour or so, (I assume because it has to cool off?) I keep it on a cooling rack with
