Having problems with your Acer PC Laptops ?
Shut down when using laptop
\015 After being online for about 40 minutes laptop shut down and restart itself.\015
Pull the memory stick(s) out of the motherboard and run a single 1x512 in the top slot (under the keyboard) as well as remove the bottom cardslot device as the motherboard had a short causing this on the bottom half (where heat builds up). With these limits (max 512mb and no bottom cardslot usage). It will work great now.

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard.
