ACER Aspire 6920: suddenly shuts down, refuses to turn on

\015 This Acer 6920 was bouth around June 2008, has been runing on GNU/Linux since October 2008.This morning, while playing CNCRA3 out of the blue it shuts down withough warning, instantly. Heat sensors where reading arround 50\302\272C on CPU, and between 65\302\272C and 70\302\272C on GPU. Nothing out of normal, everything working as usual. While the power adapter is plugged, a constant "click - click - click" is audible (I asume from the loudspeackers).Tried booting withough battery, not working.Tried removing battery and putting it back 5 minutes later, not working.Tried same two things withoug the power adapter on, not working.Tried opening it, cleaning heatsink and repeating all the above said. Still not working.This was my main desktop machine right now, lots of docs on it. Any idea on whats going on, or how can I fix it?\015

Hmm I was not sure where exactly to post this but here goes.

Hi I had the same problem a month ago. Though I do have Ubuntu 9.04 rc installed as main OS. It shut down instantly and completely while playing Civilisation 4 under Winblows. Mine is under warranty, so not a\015\012problem. But it turns out they had to replace the mother board and Nvidia video card. When it came back. It worked but I guess they didn't\015\012check the battery because it is cooked also. They are sending out a\015\012replacement. If you have another Acer you might want to try the battery\015\012in it first (if it is same size and type, of course ) That way you can\015\012fix everything at once. Just my 3 cents worth.
