Shuts off by itself

I have an acer aspire 5610-4537 notebook that just shuts off whenever it wants to. When I start it back up it comes to the screen that says windows did not shutdown successfully and asks if I want to go to safemode or start windows normally. Sometimes the computer runs for hours, even overnight. Sometimes it shuts off after 10 minutes. Any ideas?

Hi. these unstable situations that you are experiencing with your Laptop are the result of a failing operating system. your windows platform is showing signs of system 32 files deletion that can be only traced back to a virus attack. this could also be the works of a slow working worm or dangerous spy ware as well.

The best action here would be to preform a system restore. you can find this option in the start menu button. once you click on start, go to the accessories tab and click on system tools on the accessories tab. once you move the mouse pointer on system tools, click on system restore. i would back this pc up as far as possible. if you cant access the system restore in the desktop, you can also do this in safe mode as well. if the system restore cant back up the system to an earlier date, the virus may have already done enough damage to ruin the file base.

In this case, you will need to us a recovery disk to re install the windows platform and all the pre installed software as well. your recovery disk should have been shipped or delivered with the unit. This disk is very important and it is the only way to reinstall the Windows OS without deleting all the information you have stored.

You can use a regular windows disk to restore the OS but, it will reformat the HDD and wipe all files.

Please rate and god bless:)

Sorry to hear that :( try this hope it works

  1. unlpug everything from the computer and leave only mouse, keyboard, monitor and power and restart the computer and try to shut it down if it works try this from preventing shutting down.
  2. start>right click on my computer properties>advanced>on startup and recovery click on setting>uncheck the automatic restart. once you do that try to shut the computer down if it works most issue are ether the printer connected to the computer usb like mous etc.. in that case you need to update the drivers for your computer

My Acer Aspire Notebook restarts itself automatically whenever i perform a video chat. Can some one suggest me what to do?

Your computer may not be properly cooled, if it gets to hot it will shut off. Its a safety feature to make sure your computer does not melt. I would check your temps with a desktop utility or through your bios. If you want to see the error message that your computer is displaying do this. Right click on “My Computer”>Click “Advance” Tab”>Click on “Start-up and Recovery” and make sure the box that says “Automatically reboot” is unchecked. Now you should be able to see what the error message is, write it down and google it. That will give you a better idea on why your computer is shutting off.
