Hello, I have an Acer Aspire V3-571G that up until Monday morning has been working fine for several years.
I use it to study on and play a few games but since Monday, it will stay on for around 10 minutes before it turns itself off, I use whilst plugged into the wall and the temperatures sit around 80c whilst I'm playing. Thanks for any help anyone can give me!

Laptop Specs;
Acer Aspire V3-571G
Intel Core i5-3210M 2.5GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M with 2 GB Dedicated VRAM
8 BG DDR3 Memory

After reading a few posts, someone recommended running Events Viewer here is the error message.

You have the classic signs of an overheating laptop. Use a vacuum cleaner to suck dust out of the air intake/exhaust vents. If you need to, use a short length of stiff monofilament fishing line or thin strimmer line to dislodge it
Got a cat? Cat fur is very hard to dislodge and gets trapped between the fan outlet and the heat exchanger fins. Removing it usually means a full dismantle of the laptop and is not something to be done lightly. Again making a hook from stiff monofilament can do the job although it takes a great deal of patience. You'll need about 15 cm of line and a very sharp knife. Cut the line at an angle to make a sharp point then make a second cut but not all the way through. Twist the knife to make the hook.

Hi there Matthew_Beedle,

Your laptop is most probably overheating.
Could you post the temps of both your CPU and GPU?

Can you turn on the laptop right after it shuts down?

I believe it would be nice to start with just cleaning the dust out and reapplying thermal paste. You can take it to a repair shop, if you are not sure you can do that.

Cheers,
D_Know_WD :)
