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

thanks
Richard

Aspire 5535 heats up and shuts down when a game is initialized. Fans clean and appears functional. Applied fresh thermal glue to heat sinks. Problem persists.


increase ur ram Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

MY COMPUTER SHUTDOWN WHILE IT HAS A 60%REMAINING BATTERY. UNEXPECTED SHUTDOWN. MY LAPTOP CANT RESUME THE PROGRAMS RUNNING AND UNSAVED DOCUMENTS AFTER THE UNEXPECTED SHUTDOWN HAPPENS ..WHY MY OTHER LAPTOP...


If the Computer restarts randomly, then the issue might be due to any damaged Operating System Files.
But, if the Computer shuts down randomly, it is due to the Processor.
All the Processors will be designed in such a way that, if there is any overheating issues, the Computer will shut down randomly.
The overheating might occur due to the malfunction of the Cooling Fan in the Computer.
As this is a overheating issue, it would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.
Replacing the Cooling Fan in the Computer should resolve the issue.

Acer aspire 5010 bugged fan


as for aspire products, that would be part of the aspire 5000 series.
if your processor is getting that hot often its probably overheating. theres probably some dust bunnies in the fan or the fan pipes. try dusting it out and see if that solves the problems. you generally shouldnt have to alter the fan speeds at all because they are temperature controlled.
try resetting the bios to defaults if some how the fan settings were changed to funny values. it should definately be kicking in sooner than that.

Acer 5520 power shutdown


Possible heat issue. Check the cooling fans and see if theyre running. Usually one on the bottom, back or side of the laptop. Make sure that the cooling vents arent blocked during use.

My acer aspire cooling fan is not working properly so it turns off unexpectedly several times a day.


if the cooling works well the fan gonna shutdown automatic. nothing to worry about, but if it does when the computer is still hot then you need to replace the fan.

when it shutsdown, does it later start by it self?

Acer t310 fan runs when shutdown


More than likely the cpu is still hot even after you shut off you computer, so as a saftey precaution the fan is trying to cool it down,(which is a good thing).
