Hi Fayez,

How soon does the laptop switch off? Immediately, or a few minutes into booting into Windows, or ... ?

It could be an overheating issue. If you're using it on your lap or on a soft surface such as a couch or bed, the fan might not be able to release the heat.

Try putting something underneath the back of the laptop and place it on a stable surface such as a desk and boot it up - see if it still shuts down.

Otherwise, let me know how soon it's switching off, or at what point if it's the same point every time.

Acer Aspire 5100: SMART Failure on Hard Disk 4


Hello there,

As per experience, SMART Utility will check your HDD for any errors that may occur.

I backed up everything and replaced a new HDD and got rid of the error.

Opened up the problematic HDD and noticed a very light scratch on its "platters".

As for me. Never ignore this warning before something might happen to your HDD and lost important data.

Battery drains


This is most likely a bad battery. The battery has a built in discharge circuit that keeps the battery from draining when the machine is off. I'd say the this has malfunctioned, and that a new battery will fix the problem. Let me know.
