Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook ?
After about 6 hours on the mains, the laptop defaults to the battery and the mains does not work.
Sounds like a faulty power supply...when it gets hot, after 6 hours as you say, a connection is failing. If you leave it a while to cool it will probably start to work again. I would suggest a replacement power supply as it could be dangerous.
