My Acer Aspire 5610-2328 notebook has been over-heating and shutting down since I purchased it around 15 mos ago. I sent it in to their repair center once and they turned it on and left it in the back room without any kind of load on it and told me that they couldn't find anything wrong with it.
It has continued shutting down and now it says that my Windows Live OneCare that I purchased some months ago has quit working. It is freezing up and most of my programs are not responding on a regular basis. One of the biggest problems is that the date is stuck at June, 2005 and it won't let me change the date and time.

Re: Overheating and shutting down
Re-load it. OR Take it apart and clean it. Dust is clogging the heatsink by the processor. AMD OR PENTIUM?

Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail. A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust. Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.
Follow these steps to avoid overheating: -Don't use your laptop in full sunlight for extended periods -Don't leave your laptop in a closed car on a sunny day -Don't place your laptop on or near extreme heat sources, such as radiators, hot air vents -Turn off your laptop before putting it in your carry bag -Turn off your laptop when not in use for a long period -Work on an even surface as much as possible ?€" not your lap! -Clean the air vents in your laptop regularly by using a can of compressed air -Get more space under your computer by propping it up on something when it's on a desk -Consider purchasing a laptop cooling pad -Consider purchasing an external fan
To clean your laptop's cooling system follow these steps: -Shut down the laptop ie do not leave it suspended, sleeping or hibernating. -Unplug all cables from the unit and remove the battery pack -Get a can of compressed air and blow it into all vents around your computer - this should clear out any dust and hair. -Do Not use a vacuum cleaner.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job", to remove the dust, because the dust is acting as a layer of insulation, trapping heat inside your computer.
Reload the battery.
Connect the AC power.
Start your laptop, and check that the fans inside the notebook computer are pushing air out of the exhaust-vents. If not, the fan(s) have failed, and you need a professional computer technician to disassemble your computer, and fix the fans.
this is an overheating problem, computer have a thermal protection sensor that senses extreme temp.
i suggest return to your service provider and have them check again, it could probably cause by, the fan isnt plug or there is a lot ob obstruction to exhaust that tned to build up heat around your pc
