Acer Predator Helios 300 Freeze/Power Issue

I got my laptop just over a week ago and a couple of Windows Updates after that. I am not sure if those updates are causing the issue but I have already tried uninstalling a couple of them, but nothing worked.

The problem is that the laptop gets stuck in the middle of doing something and everything freezes. So I long press the power button to force shutdown but then it doesn't start back up. Now I have gone through this link and it is exactly the problem I am having. Only difference is that, in that question, it was a one time thing, which got solved by doing a battery reset. In my case, I have had this problem 3 times in the last 3 days, 5 minutes ago most recently.

I am sure that it isn't just a coincidence in my case and while I will be taking the laptop to a service center by next week, I was hoping I could save myself the hassle if anyone has some DIY tricks or suggestions to fix this. Or at least help me pinpoint what the problem might be.

    I'd be inclined to return the notebook, being so new you shouldn't be incurring such a problem.
