Question about Acer Aspire 5630 Notebook

2 Answers

Laptop won't shut down normally!

I have an Acer Aspire 5630 which is probably less than a year old and which won't shut down properly.

When I:
1) press start-shut down-shut down
2)OR use the shortcut keys to do that
3)OR log off and press the shutdown-shutdown link
4)OR just press (and hold) the power button when the laptop is on or in the process of turning off...
...the laptop just restarts. The only way I can shut it down is to press and hold the power key whilst it is starting up which obviously isn't good for the computer, because when I turn it on the next time it generally goes to the black and white screen where it asked what configuration I would like because Windows didn't start normally the last time...

What do I do? I don't want to break my computer by shutting it down in the middle of turning on!

Thanks very much!

You should go to the BIOS and load the default settings. Also, check your device manager to check if all hardware is installed and functioning properly (no conflicts, etc).

My laptop computer keeps shutting down even though it is plugged in.


Overheating could be the problem of continously shut down. Open your System and clean it with an air blower manily near the Processor part and remove the RAM and clean its legs with a white paper and place it again.

It will solve your problem.

Laptop keeps rebooting.


It can be a hardware problem (defective memory) or a software problem (defective OS) and/or virus infection.

Shuts down abruptly after starting


you mention that the power just dies,there is a fault with the Acer aspire 5630,when i opened up the system,i noticed that the dc port at the back of the system was a little loose,the terminals were loose,and it was not charging or powering up,the reason why this is happening on most laptops is because the dc jack that plugs into the dc port on your laptop is heavy,and it tugs at the port,if they made the jacks lighter for the ports,it would not be a problem,i have hard wired a mobile pord and took out the old one and fixed the problem,the problem i find with manufacturers is that they dont design laptops that well,the design them to break down,so people like me are always finding new ways to make them function longer,get some one to have a look at it,it could be that,maybe you have a old batery?
