I bought my Acer laptop in November of 2016, and its been working fine until a few weeks ago it started freezing while loading into games. I cant move the mouse, press the windows key, CTRL+ALT+DELETE doesn't do anything, and I have to hold the power button and restart it. Other than that, the keyboard will still light up if I press a key. It ONLY does this while loading games and rendering 3D models, which happens to be the two things I do most. I can still browse the internet and watch youtube. I sent Acer an email about repairing it, and it would have been about $330 to do that, so no. Also, sometimes it will make a low, dull buzzing noise.

    The Acer E 15 is powered by Intel's Core i5 processor, which will offer you plenty of performance. This particular i5 processor is the standard across the industry for mid-range laptops, found in everything from Dell's Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 lineup to Samsung's Notebook 13 series. 

    For day-to-day multitasking, video streaming, and even memory-hogging app-usage (Adobe Premieres and Photoshops), the Acer E 15 is a capable contender. And if gaming is a priority for you, I've got good news and bad news. The good news is the E 15 is well-equipped to handle middle-of-the-road gaming, or even very demanding games, but you'll have to tick down the graphics a few notches. 

    And in your case, you're using 3D sofwares (Maya,3Ds Max, etc., I assume) and probably the latest games which consume a lot of memory and graphics. And for this laptop, you will have to tone down the quality setting of your games, including disabling Anti-aliasing for high end games, for it to function smoothly. Still, while running graphic heavy programs, the system will heat up quite a bit. And that's what forces it to shut down the display to prevent overheating. That's why the system looks like it's on but fails to display anything, forcing you to reboot the system.

    However, there is a fix for this issue. I would recommend installing "nVidia Inspector". It's an app that reads out driver and hardware information for GeForce graphics cards. And it has a control module that allows you to change the fans speed, frame rate, etc. Using this app and by changing the settings on it, you can play graphic heavy games. It's a bit easy to install and use but I would recommend watching tutorial videos about it on Youtube before installing it.
