Chances are the fan of either your processor or power supply is bad. it could also be possible that an accumulated dust could be blocking the processor fan from reaching your processor. try using a compressed air can to clean all ventilation and check whether the fan is functioning. if one of the fan in not working replace it immediately because it may damage your processor

My acer extensa 5620z has just started to shut itself down and restart today. It has done this about 5 or 6 times now in the last hour. The last time I started it up (after powering off), it had sat and...


well its an overheating issue

looks like there is no air current going inside your laptop so its one of two issues

either you are putting the laptop on some soft area (like bed or sofa).

or (and thats what i think it is) the fan is not working properly or maybe not working at all.

so check the fans because if it is the fan then its normal you will have your computer restarting and shutting off once every 15 minutes range because the CPU is overheating and it should shut down to prevent CPU from getting damaged.

let me know what happened with u

scan your system with antivirus maybe your computer is infected with virus.

If this not work, try examine the memory, remove clean and fix it back and start the computer.
if still thesame;
examine trhe mainboard maybe some part of it overheating.
if non of those, then remove newly install hardware and software
id still theamse happen, i recommend you to reinstall your windows to correct all the errors.
It pretty if you reformat it before installing the new windows.

Note: reformatting and reinstalling could remove the important files, make backup before proceeding.
