Specs: Windows Vista
acer 7520 powers on gets to repair windows and shuts down whether on battery or AC, cpu fan runs and shuts off, acer logo flashes then gets to repair windows then system shuts down. I am thinking the CPU is overheating. Can you suggest anything else?

Check the cooling vents to make sure they're not blocked by built up dust or other debris. Then give a good blast into the vents with a can of compressed air.

Already done that, at least the cooling fan for the cpu anyway, are there any other vents?

Could be bad memory. Run Memtest86 to test.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
