My acer aspire 4738z laptop power off unexpectedly.

My laptop does not heat too much. After turn off, it can't turn on.But after one or two days it can turn on. Some days it works more than 3-4 hours, but other days it works only 5 or 10 minute.

Hello.The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Shuts off unexpectedly

Hi there.
Because the machine is only one month old i would recommend that you take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and send it in for repair, it won't cost you anything to do this as this sounds like a serious hardware problem or failure which is not of your doing.
Telling you to open the laptop will only void your warranty so this is not recommended.
Your computer will only be away for a week or so and i know it could be a pain not having it there, but for peace of mind this is the correct procedure.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
