My laptop has been switching off randomly. You can still hear the machine on when it stwitches off and doesnt shut down by pressing the power button. The only way to turn it off is by removing the battery. My laptop does heat up as well so its either a heating up probelm or a battery problem. I have tried turning the laptop without the battery and it works. I am using a Acer Aspire 5536 laptop
How "randomly?" And have you been able to monitor or log your laptop's temperatures?
it happens everytime im on my laptop. no i haven't been able to log my laptop temperature as i haven't installed a program to do so yet. I can feel the keys and the touch pad can get really hot at times. some times it fully charges my laptop and says will lat for 6 minutes or so.
