I think this is a battery problem. Even if you charge it etc. if your battery id faulty this could happen. I've had this problem several times (yes, several) and if your computers less than a year old they wont make you pay for the battery. Don't send it, take it into the store. Hope that helps.

You don't say if you have the computer plugged in or not, but if this happens with the battery, then it's possible the battery is bad. Apple had a batch of bad MBP batteries that it replaced last year. If you had one of these batteries, the charge would be lucky to last 10 minutes and when it died it really died, it didn't go to sleep like a MBP is supposed to do when the battery runs low.

You Need to get the Trash Thermal Factory Paste off the Heatsink/CPU/GPU and clean all components 100% Spotless. (De-natured alcohol And a Clean lint free cotton cloth)..Then apply a small ammount of AS thermal paste to the pads on the Components only. Do not get it on anything else as it has conductive characteristics. (Or at Least Semi-conductive)..

(Arctic silver = AS)

Well Known Issue on these models..

Like Ekse said, this is more than likely an overheating issue. If your internal fans aren't working properly, you can always go out and buy a laptop pad with a built in fan that might keep it cooler longer and keep it from shutting down so quickly.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about:

Hope this helps!

Possibly a overheating issue. Make sure the fans in the laptop are working and feel does the laptop get unusually hot?

If it is a overheating issue if you have the technical skills you could open the laptop and clean or replace the fans. Althought this probably will void your warranty. But then again i took my acer apart 3 times and still got it thrue warranty. If you choose to do it its your responsibility.

What does f61 mean?


F61 is an error code.
It will automatically shuts down your unit.
This is very common on your unit.

Try to checked if the fan is working or not.
I have repaired some unit before, this is the caused why f61 appeared.
The symptom is shutting down the unit after a few minute.
If the fan is not working it will shuts off automatically to avoid further damaged to your output I.C.

If confirmed that the fan is working then I've suspect that your output I.C. is shorted.
This is quit technical and need to send to repair shop to isolate the faulty parts.
The output IC of your unit is RSN series and quite expensive.

Pls rate my help.

Does the power light stay on? If so, you have an inverter problem. If the power light goes off, you have a power supply problem.
