Computer shuts down without warning

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!

Hi there,
Try flashing the BIOS of your machine by downloading the update from the website of your computer manufacturer.
If that does not work other troubleshooting steps to try are:
1. Use a known good working adapter from another laptop that matches yours. 2. Try another battery.
Hope this helps!

My Acer Aspire 5810TG does not shut down on battery. No problem on AC


Until you can locate the underlying cause of the problem (could be mechanical, or your particular battery power configuration settings), you can try this:

Open up a command prompt window (Start Menu > Accessories > System; or, Start Menu > Click "Run" > Type cmd in the box and press enter)

Once the command prompt session has opened, type "shutdown -s" (without the quotation marks) and press enter.

You should see a box pop up warning that shut down will occur in 30 seconds. After the countdown completes, your computer should begin the shutdown routine. This command works for restarting the computer as well, just change "-s" to "-r"

Computer heats up and shuts down


Hi,
I would suggest you open the notebook by yourself and clean it from dust. I had an Acer notebook that shut down very often because it had so much dust inside that it overheated.

Acer Aspire battery shutting off with no warning.


Karen,
I am not familiar with this particular model but deal daily with this same issue on the Lenovo Thinkpads...it is the battery. They can just go bad. Had one yesterday that was fine the day before, now won't hold a charge. It was also less than two years old. They seem to have a shelf life. I would check with ACER to make sure they agree, then order a new battery.

To extend battery life, you need to use the battery up on a regular basis, then recharge all the way. Leaving it plugged in all the time with the battery in shortens battery life.

Laptop won't shut down normally!


You should go to the BIOS and load the default settings. Also, check your device manager to check if all hardware is installed and functioning properly (no conflicts, etc).
