Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Overheating Hi, I have an Acer 3000, have had it looked at by a technician, he tells me it was shutting down after short periods of time due to overheating. On further inspection, he informs me the cooling fan thing has corroded and needs a new one. My question is, do you know where I may be able to source a used/second-hand one from, preferably without having to look overseas. Or, are you able to hook me up with one, I would be extremely grateful. Unfortunately this, (was bought in used condition) is the second Acer laptop I've had thats broken down on me and I would like to get this one up and running rather than throw it away like the previous one. PLEASE HELP.

    if the fan does not work entirely that is one issue and i'll do my best to locate a source for a fan for you.... but if it needs to be cleaned and the dust removed you won't need to buy a fan....

My acer aspire 3000 turns off suddenly when am watching videos and also when am installing office.

Turn off( shut down or restart automatically)?

It maybe cause from overheating from your graphic memory device/harddware or problem with your processor.

Are you have using fan or anyelse to cooldown your laptop during you using it?
Try something, using any fan that can cold and maintain temperature for your laptop to avoid it from overheating. Overheating is not good. It will cause your motherboard problem or screen monitor problem.

My Sony Trinitron stand by/timer light is on and will let me put tv on but only stays on for a few seconds . Model #KV27S66 Oct 99

Your TV has an overload due to some faulty components inside it. This type of fault is usually noted with overheating of horizontal output transistor connected to LOT of the TV. This may be due to LOT fault, or fault to the transistor itself. When it overheats, it put a short between supply rail, and the power supply regulator system inside your TV will detect that short and will shut down automaticaly. Please note; if the TV works after some time, say after 15 or 20 minutes; and again shuts down after working for a short period, and the cycle repeats, surely there is a winding short inside LOT, which cannot be detected by normal multimeter measurments. If it is so, replace LOT and the horizontal output transistor at the same time.

Left side of my lenovo 3000 n200 overheating

Usually left side of the laptop is where the cpu and air bent is located. If this is overheating, try to elevate the unit to free it to get air, or clean the airways bent. If you are still get overheating clean the unit by getting into the fan or check the fan.

Overheating issue - looking for service manual

I had the same problem. And i believe my method has the fix.

On the bottom side of the laptop, unscrew the door to access the CPU Fan....(closest to the power supply)
Make sure the system is OFF and not plugged in or no battery in.

You will see 2 tabs on the copper heat sync that holds it down to the cpu.
Unscrew both the visible tabs.
Bend Both Tabs upward to where when you screw it back down there will be resistance.
What that will do is secure the heatsync to the die of the CPU.

replace the CPU door, and start her up.
Hope this helps ya'll
