Acer Laptop random shutdown

I have been having a big issue with my Acer Aspire 5002WLMi laptop, in that it seems to overheat and shut down so rapidly and for no reason I can tell. There seems to be no environmental factor as the Laptop is not in a warm area, and its fan ports are left clear of obstruction.

When I turn the laptop on, the fan seems to be firing up and working normally, but about ten or fifteen minutes of having it on I can feel the Laptop beginning to overheat through the keyboard. After about twenty minutes of being on, the Laptop will usually abruptly shut down. What could be causing this? It has become a common occurance, and I am really confused as to what could be making it get so warm so fast...

    Thanks for the reply frenzy, but how exactly would I go about resetting bios? Where do I go to reset it?

As you open your computer you'll see the bios startup tap del or F1 immediately then a blue screen appears find load bios defaults then find boot sequence carefully and rearrange it like this:
HDD
DVD drive
floppy or usb
then esc and save changes then the system will automatically reboot
there you go if you have any further questions you can ask me again

My acer aspire 1690 suddenly shuts down randomly. is not an overheating problem I'm sure. I have also been checked by a technician but can not find the solution


Hello, the major reason of laptop randomly shutdown is Overheating, you said it is not over heating...

I will suggest you couple of things that you can try:

1) remove the battery and plug the laptop on direct power supply, then place the laptop on a flat and hard surface and then boot the laptop.

or do a complete virusscan of the laptop.

or reinstall the OS...

Shutdown Issues


It could be overheating, either you need to replace the fan, or at least open it up and remove any dust (bunnies) that may have built up inside, if your fan is gummed up it won't spin which then causes computer to overheat.

Booting issues...i guess


you are in shutdown with battery. try it without battery to eliminate one issue. Then, you may need to recharge battery fully, for around 12 hours.

got backup for that Acer?
