Acer Aspire 9502WSMi Shuts Down When Upper Parts Are Pressed!

I have an Aspire 9502WSMi and it was working properly. One day it just shut down for no reason. It sometimes shuts down when keyboard, palm rest, or even when I try to close the LCD lid. As if like there's something being disconnected when the laptop is touched in a wrong way. This is my first time to have this kind of problem. I have already tried opening the laptop resitted the ATI X700 video card, CPU, Plugs, Battery, and RAM but I still get the same problem. There's no problem if you don't touch the laptop. But again it shuts down once you start pressing the rest palm or keyboards. It doesn't happen all the time. Sometimes it's working fine. Oh and one more thing, the battery status blinks or turns on and off when it happens. There was even a time when I can't get the laptop On even I press on the power button. I have to press down everywhere bend here and there trying to push the right spot. Please help me with my problem. Thanks

This sounds like a short of some kind from the motherboard touching either the body or some other peice of hardware, or you have a broken soldered joint on the board causing the problem. I would take to a qualified repairer.

Acer Aspire 5002WLMi PC Notebook Laptop shuts down automatically

  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with all troubleshooting2_bing.gif, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.
If this does not work you will probly have to go back to factory settings

Keys died and pc shut downs

It's definitely not normal. Did you spill something onto the keyboard,
and did it leak through the keyboard into the "guts" of the computer?

Take the computer to a qualified technician, top test that the motherboard of the computer is still 100% working. If it is,
then pay the technician to replace the keyboard,

Is it still under warranty, maybe an "all-perils" warranty?

I pressed the sleep button on my logitech S510 cordless keyboard and nothing will wake the computer. Not even restarting it. once it reboots it goes into sleep mode.

shut down and unplug the keyboard transmitter from the pc. now remove any batteries from the keyboard and depress several keys insuring the drainage of any stored voltage. reboot pc without the keyboard and then if haulted by error or after booting to windows shut it down, replace the batteries in the keyboard the plud in the keyboard transmitter and restart making sure all components are connected properly. this should rest the keyboard and the system as well.

Could be Heat, sounds like the system is shutting down to protect the processor. Let it sit shut down over night and see if it runs longer when it's cooled down. Is the fan running?

Computer Keeps Shuting Off/Battery is Useless

Try running a good malware program like AdAware. Often these spyware programs can driver your processor to 100%, causing it to heat up too much and shutting things down. Once you have the anit-spyware loaded, bring your system up in safe mode. This will allow the spyware to search the hidden partitions on your fd, along with the rest of the disk.
