Acer laptop keeps shutting off

Post by prairiedog on Sun Nov 29, 2009 7:26 pm

My daughters notebook all of a sudden will just shut off, been doing this for a week ( i think- you know how kids are) Now it shut off and and won't turn back on. Any recommendations? or just take it to a computer repair shop?
Thanks Pdog

Hello,

Remove the power cable from the laptop for about half an hour and try again. Also make sure the laptop is placed on a flat surface and has proper ventilation.

Thanks, i think it maybe a heat issue. She always leaves it on the arm of the couch or on her bed, looks the the vents are on the bottom. I wonder how screwed up it is now
