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...

Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.
Sounds like a software application is not allowing machine to shut down. Try using the task manager to shut down all applications and processes manually, then try the shutdown option. If this works you will have to go through software apps one by one until you find the culprit. Hope this helps.
First question: What are the circumstances that led to this issue? Has the Acer Aspire ever read any disks in its cd drive? What happened before this occurred? What are the sounds/beeps you hear when the cd is inserted into the disk drive?
If you can go into the device manager (click on My Computer--Properties----Device Manager---go to the cd/dvdrom drive. What do you see? ex. if there is a red x, that mea your laptop is not recognizing the device...) Let me know when you have examined all the questions above, so I can help you solve this issue.
I am not totally sure if this is the problem, but I would suggest that you may have a power supply issue or possibly it going out. If the computer runs fine, and then shuts down, than this can be more symptomatic to a overheating issue.
In my limited experience with overheat issues, the computer actually smelled like it was getting hot, and then it would slow down and then sometimes stop. Most computers have fail safe settings where they either alarm, or shut down or both when they overheat.
Most properly the laptop shutdown itself it due to processor overheat problem. Bring back the laptop to the shop you changef the fan and ask them to check whether the heatsink with fan is tight properly to the processor.
YOUR COMUTER GRAPHICS CARD PROBABLY NEEDS A UNGRADE, VIDEO GAMES PUT A LOT OF STRESS ON THE PROC NEED TO CLEAN OT THE PROCESSOR AND THE VIDEO CARD TO DELIVER GAMING PERFORMANCE. SINCE YOUR SYSTEM WASN'T DESIGN FOR GAMING IT MAY CAUSE A LOT OF MEMORY CONFLICT WITH THE RAPID TRANSFERRING OF INFORMATION FROM THE PROCRSSOR TO THE RAM, TRY UPGRADING YOUR RAM AND VIDEO CARD AND U SHOULD HAVE BETTER PERFORMANCE WITHOUT SHUTDOWN. U MAY DUST OUT THE COMPUTER DUST ON THE PARTS CAN MAKE THEM OVERHEAT AND SHUT DOWN
The acer recovery software sometimes has it's glitches. The CD might be fine, its just the data that wa written to the disk @ time of recovery creation was corrupt at some point.
If your machine shuts down randomly there can be only 3 possible solutions to this one:
Your battery from your laptop has an issue. Try letting the laptop run on AC power ONLY.
Your CPU is overheating, caused by a broken or unresponsive CPU heat sink fan, which causes your pc to shutdown (will always auto- shutdown at a certain temperature to prevent damage to the CPU. Check if you can feel "air" coming out of your laptop, suppose to be a hatched outlet at the side or at the back or on the top cover.
You have a Virus that is shutting down the pc when it wants to. NO Operating system issue can cause your PC to shutdowb; only a virus can do that.
Summary, check your battery, check if your CPU fan is running, and make a virus scan (if the pc doesnt shut down). Remember to make a backup of your DATA, cause Acer (i dont think they will) don't do backups. Waranty on Acers is usually 3 years, depending on the country. So they should replace and repair, everything.
