Acer Aspire E14 wont start up. It starts for 5 secs then shuts off

I was using my Acer Aspire E14 laptop when it suddenly shut down out of nowhere. I charged it until it's full. (The battery indicator lights are still working.)

But whenever I press start button, it doesn't turn on anymore. I can hear the mechanics inside start, but turn off immediately after about 5 seconds. Is it a fan failure? What could it be?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thanks for the answers! The last time i used it before it shut off, i was watching a movie online and the laptop started to load slowly. I used an external fan for the first time (thinking the laptop will load fast) bcos it's very hot in our country. Several minutes after i removed the fan, it shut off and never turned on again.

I cant open / disect the laptop parts because everything is built-in. The battery and fan are not removable / replaceable. It's been with me for only 1 year now :(

The device is not POSTing. This essentially means that the BIOS is not initializing due to hardware failure. The issue is most likely motherboard failure in which case you may be better off getting a new device. It could be another hardware issue too, while unlikely.

Edit: Fixed my grammar.

There may be signs of overheating, computer will shut off to protect itself and you. There may be a buildup of dust with in the fan, I suggest opening it up and blowing the dust out (some use compressed air available in a small can ). If this does not fix the issue, fan may have to be replaced.
