Hey ArtWest,

One of the most common reasons why this might occur is if your computer is overheating due to poor circulation or blocked ventilation. As such, I'd first suggest giving the computer a thorough cleaning using an air duster, and making sure that the external vents are not plugged. If there's any kind of obstruction blocking these vents, the internal temperature of your computer can rise to the point that it must shut itself down to prevent any kind of damage. Remember to always hold these dusters at least six to eight inches away from the surface(s) being cleaned, as they have been known to leave liquid residues behind or freeze surfaces when held too close.

Additionally, overheating may be caused by the failure of an active heat sink (fan). If you feel confident in opening your computer's case, you may wish to verify that all of the fans are working correctly when the computer is in operation. Many computers will have at least two internal fans: one to cool the CPU, and one to cool the case itself. Some models may have several extra fans to cool the video card or to help improve circulation.

Assuming that cleaning the computer does not resolve the problem and all of your internal fans are still operational, you could potentially be looking at a more serious problem: a possible defective processor or motherboard.

Remember though that any repairs not performed by a factory-authorized technician may void your warranty coverage, so make sure to contact Acer first if your warranty is still in effect.

Hope this helps you out.

Computer freezes with a coloured screen or turns itself off

Sorry it took forever for me to get back to you; the solution may be anything from an OS reinstallation to dusting the interior gently or simple lowering of the graphics card clock rate (in detailed settings for it.) It sounds like a fan might be ready to replace; you get to look and see whether it is the one on the graphics card, chipset, or the CPU. If the fan is caught going under the speed given in the BIOS/UEFI the machine'll shut itself down.
If this is ongoing, drop a little more detail here. I can't but get back quicker.

Phone often turns itself off then comes back on again - like its resetting itself. This happens a few times everyday and is annoying


I would suggest removing and reinserting the battery.

If the problem is not resolved, replace the battery.

If the phone is still under warranty, contact your service provider.

Hope this helps.

The power button doesnt seem to be working

It sounds like a short in the button itself. If you have a soldering gun, take it apart and resolder the connection. This is typical for Acer laptops.
It's either the button itself or the jack where the power supply plugs in. It's not real difficult.
