Are you able to restore the computer if so that may be your problem. By the way you have explained it seems like a software problem and not a hardware one.

Laptop power light comes on , fan starts then laptop shuts off

Laptops (and PCs) have sensors to kill the power when overheating takes place, particularly the CPU. You should take it to a local repair shop and let them look at it for you

Acer desktop lost my window vista during restoration have no back up disc it keeps shutting down

What your saying is you removed your Recovery Partition? Have you tried a Full Factory Recovery? Remove ALL media DVD, CD, USB, etc. Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in , Power on the laptop. Immediately tap the "Alt" and "F10" keys, repeatedly.

You can use a torrent site like isoHUNT, to download a copy of the Acer OEM vista disc, this is a little illegal, but if you use your own Windows key from your COA sticker, it should register and activate ok.
You may have to download your drivers seperatly from from ACER.
You will need a torrent client like UTorrent, and the download could take a day or so

I cant down load any games it opens an error blue screen and shuts down

Your Operating System has developed errors (corrupted).
This leads to the blue screen apearing when you try to perform some processes like downloading files, try to burn a CD/DVD.
You can solve this problem by reinstalling your service pack.
If you are using Windows XP, i recomend Service Pack 3, download from the link below:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

If this doesnt work, reinstall your Operating System. Remember to backup your data before OS installation.

Blue Screen of Death, but not quite

hard drive is a main failure concern, check to ensure power supply is plugged in. sounds like you have a corrupted rgistry file-locate OS for that unit and hit ''repair'', should solve the problem.
