Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet
I have been having tis issue with pc getting hot and shutting down, and the malware is not working right,,, i keep havingto factory reset. any clues as to what is going on and how to fix this would be most greatful ty
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.

SOURCE: full factory reset
If the PC came with a recovery disk, just simply start the computer with it in the disk drive and it will have the option to "start from scratch" or the like. It will take everything back to the way it was when you first bought it.
Now, some laptops do not come with recovery disks. In this case, you'll need a windows disk with the CD-key for that version. Start the computer with that disk in the drive and just follow the prompts. It will give you the option to upgrade or fix windows, or to install windows. Choose to install windows and format the C:\ drive when it asks you if you'd like to format. It will then erase everything on the hard disk by formatting and continue to install a fresh copy of windows.
Be forwarned.. Windows installs are like watching grass grow; be prepared to have at least an hour of time to do the job. If there's any specific questions you have about it, or even a worry or the like; please feel free to ask. :)

yes you can use the recovery partition which should be built into the hard drive. press f2 on the bios screen and follow the on board instructions. this will return the laptop to its original factory state. Keep in mind that this is a destructive reinstall of windows and you will lose all data and programs.
make sure you do a recovery and NOT a system restore to earlier date.
hope this helps.

Try taking out your battery it might be shorting out just run your laptop from the adapter and see how long it lasts before it shuts down

Issues like this mostly caused by a program or simply a corrupted operating system updates. I would suggest we try restoring the laptop back in time when the issue is not yet present. We can achieve this by performing System Restore, if I'm not mistaken, this laptop has Windows 7. Please click on the Start button, then go to All Programs> Accessories> System Tools and then finally System Restore. Please select a date when the issue is not yet present. Then, please reboot the laptop.
Hope this helps.
