When I turn on my Acer 5420 it acts like it is going to power on but then shuts down


Make sure your the computer has charged for about 10 full minutes before trying to turn on. the battery has a very short life and needs a good boost before using. if possible just keep it plugged in during use. we have that problem a lot whenever it hasnt been plugged in for a while.

There is only ONE cooling fan. You may have clogged air vents which allow the ambient air to be circulated into the laptop. If you have pets these can become VERY clogged with pet hair and not provide proper cooling. A small vacuum may be able to clear the vents without disassembly.
