Does your Acer laptop keeps shutting itself down? I’m sure it must be a disconcerting experience. You’ve to go through nearly everything – from overheating, software/ driver issues to hardware failure possibility.
Ensure No Overheating
When it comes to laptop shutting down, overheating is the first thing that comes to my mind. Because of different reasons, such as malfunctioning fan, dust, inadequate ventilation and excessive use, heat may build up inside the system board components. When it happens, your system forces itself to shut down to prevent damage to your hardware. Use a CPU monitoring app such as Free RealTemp.
Disable Unsupported Devices & Ports
Take a moment to review various devices and ports unnoticed for several years. Your Acer laptop shuts down due to hardware failure.
1. Press Windows Key + R simultaneously.
2. Type DevMgmt.msc in the text box and click OK.
3. It opens up a new tool named Device Manager.
4. Expand the top node.
5. Click the View menu, select Show hidden devices.
6. Do you see a yellow colored exclamation mark beside any devices? If so, disable such faulty devices. (Right click > Disable)
7. After that, one by one disable the Sound, video and game controllers and Network Adapters along with serial & parallel ports which are parts of Universal Serial Bus Controllers.
8. Close the Device Manager window and restart your laptop.
Perform Selective Startup
The selective startup is the type of boot mode which restricts loading of incompatible, malicious startup items. Use the Device Manager to turn off unnecessary startups and services.
1. Press Windows Key + X; select Run.
2. Type MsConfig in the new dialog box and hit ENTER.
3. Click the General tab.
4. Choose the Selective startup option.
5. Uncheck the box named Load startup items.
6. Click the Services tab.
7. Check-up the box called Hide all Microsoft services.
8. Click the Disable all button, and then click Apply | OK.
9. When you’re prompted, restart the laptop.
Perform System Restore
Your laptop settings might have been changed in an incorrect manner. Using System Restore, a maintenance utility, rollback your laptop settings and configurations to an earlier point in time.
1. Click Start, type System Restore in the Search Box.
2. Open Create a restore point.
3. In the System Properties dialog, click System Restore.
4. Click Next.
5. Select the recommended restore point and proceed next.
