It may be your hard drive and/or cpu overheating, check that your cooling system is free of dust and the fan can properly breathe.

My laptop Acer 5315 start up led comes on and then shuts down almost immediately. Could this be hard disk failure?

Definitely not. If you are experiencing a Hard Disk failure, you will experience a very slow computer. Sometimes you will also hear crackling sound on your laptop. Automatic shutdown can be attributed to either processor of video card failure. Try to start your computer in safe mode or enable VGA mode. Tap on F8 on restart then choose either of the options once you get the Advanced Boot Options. If it worked, then there are another two possibilities.
1. Video card driver is corrupted. Try to reinstall the video card driver 2. Video card is defective. Bring it to the service center.
If the safemode or enable VGA mode does not work, you have a big problem cause you need to replace the Processor of your system. It is one of the most expensive components of your computer.

Laptop suddenly shut down without notice when playing games

This is likely a "thermal shutdown" caused by fluff blocking the tiny cooling fins behind the fan.
Reason it does it when you are playing games is likely because that is when the CPU and graphics chip are working at their hardest.
Sometimes you can see / get at the fins and check / clear the cooling fins.
Try blowing down the place where the air is supposed to come out.
This will do 2 things - A = If when you blow HARD you can hear the fan spinning up, then it is not blocked - B = It sometimes clears the blockage.
Many times it is a BIG job to strip the casings off the laptop to get at the cooling fins to clear them, plus you need a very methodical approach to avoid damaging things.

My acer aspire 4745G shut down without notice even i'm using cooler fan

Using a cooler fan...
Im guessing its not a battery problem?
Go to control panel, then to Power Settings
There should be laptop specific power settings based on how long things should stay on... try and set it to one of the built-in modes to reset everything.

Acer aspire 2920z is automatically shutdown only message appear warning critical battery low and then shutdown

Sounds like your battery is faulty and not charging. Try replacing the battery or just use the mains lead with the battery removed. If this keeps happening replace the system board
