Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
While using my laptop, it just turned off. Upon turning back on...it turns right back off. I cleaned my heatsink and fan, all ok. When I turn it on, the first screen starts to load...then shuts off. This repeats over and over. The laptop is less than a year old. Can somebody help?
Are you running XP by any chance??
if so update the BIOS to the NEW 1.42 version
((the best version ACER has put out yet))

Well, the 1st thing to check is boot into safe mode (F8 at boot) and see if you can get to the desktop.
If you can, run system restore and then see if you can boot to normal mode.
If it shuts down, boot to the system BIOS, and see if the system will continue to run, if it does, then your issue is most likely a operating system problem or a hard drive problem causing an OS problem.
If the system doesn't shut down in BIOS, next is try to boot to a CD. You may have to remove the Hard Drive to exclude it from the issue. If the system boots to a CD and will continue to run, then we are pretty sure the HDD/OS is the issue.
Next would be trying to run diagnostics on the hard drive, if they fail, replace the drive. If they pass, reinstall WIndows.
