Having problems with your Computer System Cooling ?
Laptop shuts down - Computer System Cooling
If it just shuts down suddenly without logging off and doing a normal windows shutdown, you probably have heat issues to to dust clogging your heatsink. Using an air compressor at 80 lbs (canned air won't have enough pressure), blast air into the opening/grille where hot air is exhausted from the laptop. this will likely shoot a cloud of dust out of the bottom of the laptop. Shoot air into the fan intake on the bottom of the laptop next. If the laptop still shuts down suddenly, check that the fan is actually working (feel hot air blowing?) - maybe the fan is dead.
hope this helps! Let me know.

Hey there! I own an Acer Aspire 5710. It’s always had overheating problems and I’m quite used to it shutting down frequently (and frustratingly :( ). However, I was switching it on again a few nights ago after it overheated, and it went into System Repair saying there may be a disk error that it was attempting to repair and that it may take over an hour. That was all cool but then the laptop overheated AGAIN, shutting the System Repair down mid-fix. When I attempted to turn the laptop on once
