Windows 7: AcerPower 1000 Tech Problems:

AcerPower 1000 Tech Problems:

Okay, so my gf has an AcerPower 1000 she got last christmas from her dad. In the past week, the system has been crashing. Here's the complicated part.

No BSOD, no overheating, just a simple hard shut-off. I can run the system in safe mode no problem, but after logging in the normal way, it shuts down.
I thought it was a windows problem, so I tried popping in a linux live CD.
PCLinux, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, they all crash after they reach the logon screen.
At this point, I can't tell if it's a hardware or software problem. I've googled everywhere but no luck.

Please help guys.

I did that through msconfig, but when we started up, we tried turning on all the services again. It ran fine, but it crashed after a few minutes of starting the services.

Do it the way I showed. It will show you how to figure out which service is the cause. Read the Clean boot carefully.

Well, the problem's gotten worse now, so I think it's the CPU.
It won't even go to the logon screen in normal mode. It'll shut off during the Windows 7 spash screen.
Sometimes it won't even turn on.

It is hardware. As your computer is a laptop this is a bit of a pain.

Then it should still be under a 12 month warranty. Return it ASAP
