Possibly it may be due to virus that is infected to your system.
try installing new antivirus (Avast,Norton) and scan your system.

The fan on ford escort van 51 plate continually runs even when the ignition off


Sounds like either a temp. sensor, or a timer malfunction. There are heat sensors that make the fan run after you shut it down, until it's cooler, usually doesn't run long. You didn't mention if it continually runs, or if it shuts down after awhile. Other than taking it to a shop, check your fuses, wires connecting the fan under the hood, look for any frayed wires and/or loose clips. Good Luck. Grimm

My acer all in one z5600 runs for awhile and then shuts down very annoying!!!


Start by cleaning the fan or fans, heatsink, and vents, you may have to open the computer. When you open, you may as well replace the Thermal Paste on the CPU and Graphics Chips. Overheating will cause shut downs, heat sensors set to detect a set temp. will shut down to protect vital components from heat related damage. ALSO, Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Change plan settings, under Plugged In, set both to Never, open Advanced Power settings, go through thr Advanced settings set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust to your preference. It's a good idea to Always shut down your computer when not in use, it will last longer and a reboot everyday will reset the machine. Make sure ALL your Windows and Acer Updates are current.

When I plug the unit into power, the CPU fan runs very fast but no boot, and then when I press power on the fan slows down and the PC boots normally. It shuts down in about 30 minutes with no sign of...


Sounds like you are overheating. One way to tell if it's overheating is you say it will run for about 30 minutes then shuts down. When it shuts down try rebooting to see if the boots successfully. If it fails to boot successfully right after it shut down then you are probably overheating. If you wait awhile to let it cool down for 30 minutes or so and if you reboot and it does it successfully you definitely have a overheating problem. If I remember correctly all those compaq sr series have loud and fast running fans. Computers overheat because of three reasons for the most part: 1) A fan has stopped working. 2) The Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is not thick enough to keep the unit cool. 3) Dust has clogged the fan vents and inside the computer. Fortunately for you desktops don't have to be completely disassembled like laptops to get to the fan, CPU and heatsink. Just pop the case and you'll see the components attached to the motherboard

My laptop shuts down for no reason


  • Hi, from my experience, when a Computer shut-down, as the way you discribed; the main area of concern is the "Fan." The Computer is overheating; to make sure that there is not any permanent damage done to the "Computer Components, the computer will "Shut-Down." Now back to the Fan, more than likely the "Fan"just need to be cleaned. If you can get access to the Fan area to apply a "Air Blower" to clean out the "Dust," the computer should work fine. If by some reason this is not the case. There may have been a change in the "Configuration of the OS." The safest thing to do is a "System Restore," setting the Computer back to a [Time] when it was working properly. The {System Restore} can be perform by going to the "Control Panel," open the program; and follow all the instructions carefully!" Be very patient, it can take awhile. Do not use,or touch any "keys" once the System Restore started, even after the Computer restart" its still running! Wait until the message appear; that the [system restore is complete]." "Let me know how tyhings work out, by giving a "helpful rating, and thanks for using Fix'Ya"

Boots up fine runs for awhile then shuts down for no apparant reason.


Most times if computer runs and then shuts down it is mother board over heating. It shuts down to prevent damage. Try to clean you mother board fan and also make sure no dust in the exhaust part on the bottom of the computer. You can clean it with air can for computers just make sure you hold it upright because if it is sideways or upside down it will put out freezing air and it can damage you computer. Hope this helps.

Fan motor runs for awhile and then runs hot and shuts off


Bearings in the motor may need oiling. look for a tiny funnel hole on a tube on the ends to oil it. Remove power first.
If none it could be permanently sealed and need to replace the motor.
Let it cool before touching anything. again remove power first.
