Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
Why my laptop is shutting down after using a couple of hours
Are you using it when it shuts down?
Is it going into hibernate mode or completely shutting down.
If it is in use when it shuts down, it may be overheating. Check to see if the air exhaust ports have a breeze and if it is hot. Can you hear the fan run?
Often, when the fan runs, it picks up dust which settles inside on the cpu's heatsink an prevents proper airflow and you may have to open it to clean it.

I decided to use a shop vac to suck the dust out and it worked. I tested it by letting the machine run all night and it worked. It's been a couple of weeks now and I'm glad I did it. I was ready to take the machine apart, now I'm glad I didn't. I'd suggest you use a heavy duty shop vac to clean out the fan and heat sinks first.I agree. Try to fix the problem without taking the laptop apart first but I would recommend using a powerful air compressor instead of a vacuum cleaner.
If your laptop is still under warranty, you can take it to any Toshiba Authorize Service Provider and fix the problem at no charge to you.
