    I have this acer aspire for almost 2 years and recently having a random shutdowns. I already scanned my laptop from viruses and malware I've used avg, avast, spybot, malwarebytes but I found nothing. also I am having this weird issue when I am playing this game heroes of newrth my laptop doesn't shutdown it is very weird, also my laptop doesn't shutdown when I let the monitor off by doing nothing. additional to this, almost all of the time when I turn it on it suddenly turn off again for no reason. i think its not over heating

    define 'random'......I'd also download SIW from http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.php (free link is on the bottom of the page) and install that. That will show some temps.

    Also, start > run > eventvwr.msc > enter > that will open your event log. Right click and empty both the application and system folders (they show up like explorer panes) and the next time it crashes, let us know. We'll tell you how to get the data off.

    Finally, is it blue screening when it crashes, or just powering off?
