Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook

Acer 5100 laptop

It continues to shut down in the middle of doing anything, it is really hot, when it cools down it will work again for awhile. I use only the ac adapter, the battery is still good thought. I have had it for 2 years. Is this a known issue with acer laptops.

Shutdown computer don't open again then 2/4 hours computer start then open.

Not exactly sure what you mean, but sounds like it could be a laptop getting too hot. Because the space inside them is so small, laptops overheat and shut down to protect themselves from damage. They will not switch on again for a while, until they have cooled down enough. One solution is you can buy a small stand to put the laptop on, which has a fan powered by USB. Try to keep the laptop cool and make sure the fans are not blocked by anything.

Overheating and then shutting down Acer Aspire 5033

Blow out the cooling vents. Only use it on a hard surface or get an under laptop cooling fan.

Fan motor runs for awhile and then runs hot and shuts off

Bearings in the motor may need oiling. look for a tiny funnel hole on a tube on the ends to oil it. Remove power first.
If none it could be permanently sealed and need to replace the motor.
Let it cool before touching anything. again remove power first.

Not booting, then shuts down?

I had the same problem. The computer is getting to hot. I opened the case and removed and cleaned the fan. It was full of lint thus keeping the fan from cooling.

Have you cleaned the fans lately? might be really clogged - you can you some compressed air usually you blow from the intake on the bottom of the laptop out the vents in back or side

Let me know if that helps.
