Laptop intermittently turns off

I have a acer laptop and it intermittently turns itself off. It sometimes takes a few minutes before it will restart again and it will be fine until it happens again sometimes a couple of days later, or on other occassions it has happened 6 times in a row. Yesterday it started playing up first thing in the morning, it reoccured approx 6 times and then I turned the wireless off restarted and it was ok for the rest of the day even when I turned the wireless back on. It is really frustrating because it normally shuts down when you are in the middle of writing a document or writing an e mail. It turns itself off as though it has lost power but when we manage to restart it no errors come up to give any indication of what has happened.

    no but when I started it without the wireless yesterday it came on and about an hour or so later I turned the wireless back on and it was fine, but on this occasion I couldn't get it to start so I turned the wireless off so I don't know if this was a coinciddence or not.

Acer 4320 can not switch on properly. after a few minutes turn on, suddenly black out.

The problem is most likely the DC jack in the laptop, causes are no power to intermittent operation, but if the screen blacks out it means the LCD display has issues especially if the rest of the laptop is working, could be a loose video cord from the screen to the motherboard has come loose.

I have a Acer Aspire 5600 laptop This laptop does power on with a good battery and with an ac adapter but sometimes it takes awhile for the video to appear on the screen & sometimes it will restart...

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Keep losing the wireless signal on my laptop.Checked the Router everything is fine,the laptop has a built in reader.stops working even if it is next to the Router,and sometimes goes altogther.

1. Disable or remove Norton Security (usually the problem with intermittent wireless).
If that doesn't work:
2. Disable any wireless TV transmitters you have in your house. 3. Turn off all PCs, then restart the router. Wait until all the lights have stopped blinking, then start up the PC(s).

Acer aspire 5738g laptop trun off by itself every few minutes ,can please assist me in this matter.

It is probably due to overheating. Try and keep the laptop on flat surface. Laptops overheat when placed on beds sofas when you block vent hole etc. To be fair you should take laptop to a professional so they can clean it inside. One thing you can do is blasting it with compressed air in vent holes and near the fan. Remember to do it while laptop is off and battery taken out. If you feel competent enough take it a bit apart and clean it with small soft brush. Good luck!

Acer netbook loses power, turns itself off

I would get the battery first. But worst case you have a bad power connection on the board that needs to be resoldered or replaced.

My acaer aspire laptop keeps switching itself off

If the computer turns off instantly after the power is pressed, either you are not plugged into the charger and the battery is empty, or there is a hardware fault that is preventing it from starting up properly.

if you are plugged into the charger and the battery has power as well, then try unplugging the power and take out the battery for 5 minutes, plug both back in and try to turn it on. if the same problem repeats then it is most likely a hardware issue.

If you are in warranty contact acer or your dealer, you will have to send / ship the laptop to acer warranty repair, more details from acer or your dealer.

If you are outside of warranty, take the laptop to a local professional for a diagnosis and a repair estimate.
