Laptop turns off after 20 mins and restart itself

Check the cooling fan and the air inlet screen for blockage. You may need to clean the cooling fan and the fins on the heat pipe.

Computer wont charge the light comes on every few mins for about a min then goes off i can turn it on but only stays on a few mins i have a compaq presario r3000

The lithium batteries that laptops use have a 3 year lifespan. If you have had the battery for that amount of time then you have reached the end of it's life cycle. Most manufacturers build in a warning message that will pop up to let you know that you have reached that time frame and it is time to change the battery. If your battery is not that old then you have an issue either with the battery itself or the charging system built into the laptop. The only way to identify what the problem is would be to switch out the battery to another laptop and see if it would charge properly. If you do not have any access to the same model of laptop that you are currently using then the other choice would be to take your unit into your local HP-Compaq repair center. Usually the batteries are warranted for as long as the original warranty period on your laptop. The warranty would not cover the life cycle. If age is the problem then your only recourse is to buy another battery.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

My acer freezes for about 2 min at a time every 10 - 20 min. ive tried different opperating systems but it didnt fix the problem.

Sounds like you may have to open it up and cean out the cooling fins. That is a classic example of the CPU overheating and shutting itself down until it gets back to operating temp.

My laptop Acer Aspire 5720ZG turns itself off while playing a game

as i think maybe its the graphic card acting up because its getting over heated.

make sure that all the fans are working properly and u might need to replace the graphic card.

for now just make sure that its not over heating and if u want u can download drivers and reinstall them.

most likely its overheating problem
