Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet
Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

The test Dell advises to narrow down this issue is to remove the battery, hard drive, ram, and optical drive. Next plug in the a/c power cord and you should get some LED's coming on. If not it points to the motherboard.

you mention that the power just dies,there is a fault with the Acer aspire 5630,when i opened up the system,i noticed that the dc port at the back of the system was a little loose,the terminals were loose,and it was not charging or powering up,the reason why this is happening on most laptops is because the dc jack that plugs into the dc port on your laptop is heavy,and it tugs at the port,if they made the jacks lighter for the ports,it would not be a problem,i have hard wired a mobile pord and took out the old one and fixed the problem,the problem i find with manufacturers is that they dont design laptops that well,the design them to break down,so people like me are always finding new ways to make them function longer,get some one to have a look at it,it could be that,maybe you have a old batery?

The problem is likely a dead battery.The best way to test the battery is by fitting in a replacement battery. Battery can also be tested using a multimeter on Amps, this will not tell you if the battery is holding charge.
In some case the problem is not the battery, but wiring to the battery.
Laptops also have an internal battery power charger circuit, that can be integrated on main board or on a separate board.
As said, the most common failure is the battery itself.

Testimonial: "Thanks a lot. It was really helpful but the laptop is a new one and was working normally untill it went off last week when it was fully charged and the charger was removed. "
SOURCE: Power problem
Press the power button and if it goes on keep pressing the button until it shuts off. Then try to power it up by tapping the power button once.
How have you tested the battery? In my Acer laptop I'm on my third one in 2 years and recently got a 9 cell high capacity one that lasts 3.5 to 4 hours when my original lasted only 1 or 2 hours tops.
