My computer keeps shutting down automatically.


If it is shutting down by itself to a full power off then the first thing you should check is heat. Software could be an issue but the safe bet would be hardware. It sounds like it's overheating and shutting down to prevent damage. Check to see if the computer itself is warmer than usual. Listen carefully for sounds that are different or missing. It could be that a fan that failed that is causing an excess build up of heat. If you are comfortable doing so you should remove the cover and used a can of compressed air to blow dust off the boards and fans or if your careful you can use a vacuum, emphasis on careful.

Hi,

I suggest try to check these things on your machine.

->Check if the machine is Overheating.
->Check which part of the machine is Overheating.
->See if the Fan of the machine is Running(Feel if the air vent of the machine)

Cause of Automatic Shutdown:
-Memory
-Hard Drive
-Fan is not working

Most likely those are the cause of the machine keeps on shutting down unexpectedly.

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

When you start your laptop, press F8. You will get a menu (Normal boot, Reboot...). Choose Last good known configuration (something like that).

Help !!!!my laptop shuts down


We had some Acers do the exact same thing and we fixed them. I believe it shuts right off as a safety. Usually when the processor gets too hot it powers right off to save the laptop from burning up. First quick fix it to blow out the vents and especially blow out the heat sink vent. Also could be that the heat paste that sits between the CPU and Heat Sink could have dried up and stopped doing it's job to remove heat efficiently from the CPU. Big problem in earlier model Gateway laptops too. This can be fixed by acquiring some paste from a local tech shop and reapplying it. If you feel unsure about it, take it to a tech shop and they can do it quick for cheap if not for free. Keep me posted - Scotty

Read disk error occured during rebooting


The acer recovery software sometimes has it's glitches. The CD might be fine, its just the data that wa written to the disk @ time of recovery creation was corrupt at some point.

If your machine shuts down randomly there can be only 3 possible solutions to this one:
  1. Your battery from your laptop has an issue. Try letting the laptop run on AC power ONLY.
  2. Your CPU is overheating, caused by a broken or unresponsive CPU heat sink fan, which causes your pc to shutdown (will always auto- shutdown at a certain temperature to prevent damage to the CPU. Check if you can feel "air" coming out of your laptop, suppose to be a hatched outlet at the side or at the back or on the top cover.
  3. You have a Virus that is shutting down the pc when it wants to. NO Operating system issue can cause your PC to shutdowb; only a virus can do that.
Summary, check your battery, check if your CPU fan is running, and make a virus scan (if the pc doesnt shut down). Remember to make a backup of your DATA, cause Acer (i dont think they will) don't do backups. Waranty on Acers is usually 3 years, depending on the country. So they should replace and repair, everything.
