Question about Computers & Internet
This is driving me mad! I have an acer aspire 5610-4182 and it is just under 1 year old. my problem is that it completely turns off without warning. sometimes is lasts for an hour or more, other times 15 minutes, sometimes less, sometimes more. There is no warning. I have the power plugged into it all the time, and also have a fan underneath it. What can I do?
My first guess is that your laptop is over heating. Even with a fan underneath, if the bottom vent is clogged with dust, the CPU will still get too hot. Does your computer last longer when you run less programs? I would check for dust around the fan inside your laptop. There's a video on youtube showing an acer being disassembled:
Although it may not be your laptop specifically, hopefully it will head you in right direction. It would be a bad idea to blow the dust further back into your computer, so you may have to loosen some screws and buy a electronics duster from an office supply store, but it should solve the problem. I've ran into this a lot over the years, specifically with Acer and Dell computers. Hope this helps!

Hello sir/mam, good day, just relax and pause for a while, i also had the same problem with my compaq armada, it just shut down on me, well its an old laptop, there are some things you can try. first buy a new battery. if thats not your option. second you have to dismantel your laptop and clean all contact and connectors, which may require that you get very techie, if warrantee is available, call your dealer. cause your laptop problem is a serious one. im looking for replacement of the mainboard. if these may help please free to ask me again. thanks
