Question about Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop
I suspect that my Acer mini aspire L100 has some issues with overheating and in so doing the motherboard has possibly gone bad.
It will power on at times and at others does not. The cooling fans run when it is turned on but sometimes there is no light indicating that the unit is on. I am interested to know if I will first have to replace the motherboard and then learn how to fix the overheating problem. Can you help me???
Replace the thermal grease. My fan would get real loud and my system would just turn off. I replaced the thermal grease and it is quiet and doesn't shut off anymore. The thermal grease only costed 10 bucks.

I am not totally sure if this is the problem, but I would suggest that you may have a power supply issue or possibly it going out. If the computer runs fine, and then shuts down, than this can be more symptomatic to a overheating issue.
In my limited experience with overheat issues, the computer actually smelled like it was getting hot, and then it would slow down and then sometimes stop. Most computers have fail safe settings where they either alarm, or shut down or both when they overheat.

Hi, you will be able to purchase a mini ATX format board by almost any manufacturer that will fit the acer case, the only problem you may hve is the PCI and Graphics cards will need to be low profile standards but these are also available if you are not planning on gaming then the on board graphics on most new boards will do all you ask of them.
