SOURCE: Hello, As i was working on,

Looks like you have a faulty battery, since you bought your laptop 4 months ago, I think it is still covered by their warranty. Please try to contact the manufacturer about the possible battery replacement. :)
Some of the things to do/check if the manufacturer requires you to return your laptop to them: 1. Backup all your important files to a different media/storage, like an external hard drive or burn them to blank DVD's
2. You can also tell them that it MIGHT be your charger that's faulty. Either way, they SHOULD check the battery and charger.

Sorry to say but it sounds as if your battery is nearing the end of it's life. How long have you had this problem for? and how long have you had your laptop? Battery's let alone computer's don't have much more than a 5 year life span, that is if there maintained properly. My HP Pavilion is starting to slow after having it to 2 years, and battery life seems to have shorten by 30min. Well I hope this isn't the case as battery's are quite costy. But if this helps in any way, best of luck!

It is a sign that your battery is failing. Try to remove the battery then put it back. After that, try to check if you still experience the same thing. If so, then you need a new battery replacement.

Batteries usually start to degrade after a year or after 500 charges, whichever comes first.

My acer 5750 i7 keeps shutting down

The infected laptops encounter random shutdown problem until some maintenance activity is being performed on the system.

Two important things that you should do to fix a laptop which keeps shutting down are:

1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.

2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.

The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes.
For an instant fix use system utility tool Reginout.

Sounds like your battery is faulty and not charging. Try replacing the battery or just use the mains lead with the battery removed. If this keeps happening replace the system board
