Question about Acer Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Hey there! I own an Acer Aspire 5710. It’s always had overheating problems and I’m quite used to it shutting down frequently (and frustratingly :( ). However, I was switching it on again a few nights ago after it overheated, and it went into System Repair saying there may be a disk error that it was attempting to repair and that it may take over an hour. That was all cool but then the laptop overheated AGAIN, shutting the System Repair down mid-fix. When I attempted to turn the laptop on once again, it showed the ACER screen and turned on, however after it attempts to load Windows and the Windows System Password screen, the monitor just goes black but the screen is lighted. It doesn’t beep nor go any further. Removing the battery and replacing it does nothing. Restarting the computer with just cable as the power source makes no difference. So I don’t get any further than the shoddy black backlit screen. Any ideas? Your help would be MUCHLY appreciated! xJay

    Thanks to both of you for your help!



    I will look into purchasing a cooling pad, thanks :)



    I'm getting a little further with my laptop atm.. I held down F8 during startup to bring up the Repair/Safe Mode system menus..



    It's currently repairing C:, which I suspected was the damaged drive to begin with.



    I'll post the results in a few hours or when possible! (Yes, I'm hopeful..)



    Thanks again for your help..I shall be back here whether it works or not :)



    Cheers!

From what you are saying, the overheating inerrupted the disk error repair. You would need to repair your operating system using your Windows CD. Now to deal with your overheating, I recommend that you purchase a laptop cooling fan from a computer acceceries shop near you. It's normally a simple plastic pad with fans in it on which you place your laptop. I suggest that you obtain this before you go on with the repair since the laptop may heat again and interrrupt your repair.

Sounds like a power supply issue. Acer laptops are known for this exact problem.

    after you resolve the overheating problem, which is probably what caused the hard drive issue, (ie bad shutdown) than you will need to format and reinstall windows. Usually this description you are giving is caused by corrupted start up files. (boot loader) There is no work around.

My acer aspire 4930 laptop shut down frequently while working


Hi

Maybe you are using this laptop for a quit a long time now without cleaning? you need to clean the exhaust fan. As the thermal protection shuts down the system once the temperature reaches its limits. Cleaning the fan will solve the problem.

I have a ACER 5735 . The laptop shuts down suddenly while its on and sometimes im not able to switch on the laptop and even if i switch on , then once again the power goes off immediately . What would be...


Hi,

The reason for the sudden shut down of your computer is because of overheating of the 'case', where the CPU is mounted. Overheating can be due to dust accumulation on the heat sink, which prevents dissipation of heat. The possible solution to combat overheating issue is to keep the laptop dust free by cleaning out debris at the vents frequently. Note that a laptop has a much smaller cooling area in comparison with desktops and hence laptops tend to accumulate dust a lot quicker than desktops. This is because all the dust/debris, in the case of laptops, accumulate in the cooling fins.
