I got a acer aspire 5515 the other day,finially got a chance to messs with it a bit this morning. when i turn it on, it only stays on for about 5-10 seconds then shuts back off. ive cleaned the fan and vent,repasted the cpu,checked both sticks of ram in another laptop and they proved good. When it starts i have had my hand by the vent, it dosent last long enough for the fan to blow warm air of the cpu. My conclusion is bad cpu or fault in the motherboard but leaning more twards the cpu. Id sure appreciate some input from ya'll on my search and findings.
Thanks a million in advance, ya'll are top notch

Hello Rascle53

Possible cooling fan failure causing the thermal sensor to shut the system down to protect the CPU from frying, can you actually hear the cooling fan running at any time.

Power issue another possible cause, have you tried using battery power only and vice versa removing the battery and using only the AC adapter, if so what was the outcome in both instances please.

Glad you got it sorted and thanks for the follow up Rascle53 :thumbsup:

It is hard to convince some people that a bad battery can have such an affect on a notebook so your post will be helpful in convincing them.

Some but not all notebook batteries can be reset which sometimes resolves such issues as what you had http://www.brighthub...cles/50844.aspx
