Could be a faulty fan or fluff stopping it from turning.

Testimonial: "The rubber circular fan part was not properly seated on spining fan part. I had to take off my keyboard and lightly push the rubber fan part onto the spining part. There is a hole there to do this."

Also If You Have Vista You Can Put In Your Vista DVD And Click Repair This Computer Or Whatever When It Asks.

Return it for service. This is a defect. The fan should run until the heat is below the temp threshold.

SOURCE: About 10 seconds after i turn on my aspire 3690

First thing I'd check is for a BIOS update for your computer under the Acer support pages (acer.com). In some cases, thermal control updates are included in newer version of the BIOS, if it is a manufacturing problem.
Goto http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php and download Hardware Monitor, start the computer and immediately run the hardware monitor app to check how high the temperature on the CPU gets before it shuts down.
Continuing use under this condition may damage your Windows installation because of the sudden shutdown.

My samsung R540 pc will start for a few seconds and shut down again


It sounds like your power supply has died. I would suggest a replacement.
You also may need to reseed your ram as that may sometimes be the issue.

Acer Aspire 4930 heats up very quickly


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith 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 surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

My acer aspire 4930 laptop shut down frequently while working


Hi

Maybe you are using this laptop for a quit a long time now without cleaning? you need to clean the exhaust fan. As the thermal protection shuts down the system once the temperature reaches its limits. Cleaning the fan will solve the problem.

ACER ASPIRE 3000 gets power off after some time automatically


If the laptop shuts down by itself and deosn't boot up again after some time, then the problem could be an over heating problem. The CPU shuts down when it overheats (thermal shutdown) and it is usually caused by a faulty fan and or the fan and heat-sink is clogged with dust.
Check the fan and if it does not spin freely then replace the fan and or remove the dust from the fan and heat-sink assembly.
