Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
My laptop freezes after certain time, lately it was maybe about 30mins or so, that I have to manually turn off and turn on back.
To overcome the problem, I decided to restore to factory default setting - it reboots as per normal procedure and starts to prepare to do the restoring. Only after couple of minutes of the process, my laptop suddently switches off automatically. The light indicater to say that the battery is connected is also switched off - yes I had the power attached. Lucky I have copies of the restoring data on CDs, however I tried to use it and still the same thing happens, the computer just switches off after few minutes. Do you think this is a hardware or battery issue?
Actually it sounds like a heat issue. Is the bottom of the laptop getting hot? If so....
Using an air compressor (be carefull you do not need 150 psi) or a can of compressed air blow out all of the vents. Laptops have heatsinks that are so small it does not take much to plug them up.
You can also prop it up on something or get one of the fans to set it on and see if that does any good.
Hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
You may need to restore your Acer computer to its factory defaults if a virus damages operating files or if the system begins acting erratically for unknown reasons.
Restoring an Acer to factory defaults returns the computer to its original state when first purchased.
Click on the Start menu.
Then, select all programs, Acer Empowering Technology and Acer eRecovery Management.
If this is the first time you have opened the program it will prompt you to set up a password and create a backup CD.
Click the Restore button and select the option that reads "Restore system to factory defaults".
Wait for the computer to finish the restore process and reboot.
Restoring for the Boot Screen
If your computer will not boot up properly, you can attempt to reach the restore option by pressing the Alt button and the F10 button at the same time.
When the eRecovery menu appears, choose "restore system to factory defaults".
Wait for the recovery process to complete and the computer to restart.
Hope this helps
