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

Re: Acer Aspire 9502WSMi Shuts Down When Upper Parts Are...

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

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?

Acer Aspire 9300-3655: Shuts Downs When Idle

does it just shut down randomly? and then when you turn it back on it shuts down nearly straight away? if so then it sounds like the processor is overheating and as a saftey mechanism it shuts down. which could be a big problem.

or you just need a new battery. because you are supposed to only charge it when it is dead. if you keep it on charge and plug it into the mains randomly,then the battery will eventually lose it capacitence (basically how much charge it can hold) and then it wont last long atall. you want to hope its the battery.

hope this helps.
