2 possible reasons: a program in the background is running constantly at full power (open Task Manager, find it and uninstall it) or the cooler is clogged with dirt (use a can of compressed air and a q-tip to clean it). To remove some of that heat use a cooling pad.

Acer Aspire 5720Z will not turn on please help me


For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:

If you verify your laptop adapter is dead and you plan to order a new one, I recommend one for you on the basis of your laptop model:

My acer 5720 laptop gets v hot and shuts down i sit it on a coolin pad already. what could the problem b it seems 2 hapen more often when the power cable is in use and only rarely when the batery is in use


This is a common problem in the acer line, remove bottom and clean all the open ports and fins on the heat sink and fan. Next remove the heat sink and clean the old conductive paste off, including the processor ic with rubbing alcohol, now! apply fresh conductive thermal paste to the heat sink and ic, this will increase the heat dissipation by 50%, and check to make sure the fan is running properly, "high failure rate" this should solve your shutdown problem.

Motherboard problems. It's an Acer and they're notorious for having these exact issues about one year to two years after being bought.

Acer Aspire 5720 Laptop issues.


It could be the battery. So i'd try to find a store that sells batteries and replace the battery.
Manny laptops will shut off when the battery is dead. So if your laptop works without the battery and only connected to the wallsocket, it's definitely the battery.
With kind regards,

Key board problem


It would seem that the keyboard may be defective. It is a fairly standard keyboard layout, so SHIFT-2 should produce the @ sign. It looks to be a fairly cheap fix:
