If this has recently started then it may be something simple like dust and fluff in the "cooling path". Vacuum out or blow out with a can of air, if the problem persists, you could purchase a cooling pad that plugs into the usb or a self powered one(£15-$20) or so, very cheap on E-Bay.
I hope this helps.

Either it has a temp protection set on bios.....and its shuts down when it reach on that temperature ....( i mean the CPU ) ..in this case just go to bios set-up ...on boot by pressing del and remove any temperature limits if it has ...or try also to restore the default (manufacturer settings) from there ..if you arent able to locate that temp cpu limitator
if after this it still does that ..it means that your cooler either do not work anymore ...but inthis case the shuting down should be almost imediate after boot...either do not work proper...and it needs to be replaced...
but my money will be on the top temperature seting from Bios...and it is shuting down auto when get to that temp ..
good luck !

HOW TO GET THE BACK OFF


Break it off..........

In order to take the Base Enclosure (Bottom Cover) off, you would have to break it off.

The Acer Aspire 5000 series of Notebook PC's, disassembles from the Top down. When you are done you are looking at an empty Base Enclosure,

You have to;
Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
Remove the Harddrive Compartment Cover, Harddrive, Memory Compartment Cover, Ram Memory, Wireless Module, Wireless Antenna wires out of laptop body, Optical Disk Drive, (DVD drive), Display Assembly, (LCD Module), Keyboard Cover, Keyboard, Palm Rest Cover, Motherboard, and so on..........

Then you have the Base Enclosure. (Bottom Cover)

WEAR an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.

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.

My Acer Aspire 5000,keeps shuting itself down during startup


this is an indication that your computer has so many dust build up inside, CPU or the processor generates heat, even when in start up mode, when the heat doesn't dissipates somehow, there is a protection that will shut off electrical circuits to prevent further damaged to your whole computer.
that is why it is shutting by itself automatically. chances are there is a lot of obstruction in the cooling system, particularly the heat sink.
you need to send this to a technician, im afraid
hope this helps

Acer aspire 5000 unexpected shutdowns, random, fan running.


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have you cleaned out the airvents and fan area. these build up with dust and if the unit gets too hot it will shut down unexpected

Also always use on a hard surface so the airvents are kept clear
