Question about Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop
You posted that you have a solution to the Heat problem on L100... mine keeps overheating... could you send me the solution... email@example.com.... thanks...
We purchased 10 of these for our dealers since most of them have space constrains. I found that I had to reapply the thermal compound on just about all of them, since they all had a problem of spinning up the fan and then shutting down.
What you do is get some MX-2 Thermal Compound
--> Open the case with the one screw on the back
--> Once open, undo the 4 screws that hold down the heatsink - the copper looking thing - the fans stay in the case. The screws will NOT COME OUT. Just leave them attached to the heatsink.
--> Take some cleaning alcohol and put some on some cloth. Then use the cloth to wipe the old thermal compound (grey goop) off the CPU and the Heatsink.
--> Apply a couple "drops" of the MX-2 on the CPU and use a credit card to spread is it over the CPU. NOT TOO THICK. In fact, I found a complete coverage, while trying to get it as thin as possible seems to get the best cooling effect.
--> Re-apply the heatsink by screwing in the screws one by one, switching to the next screw which is diagonal to the previous one. This way even pressure is applied to the headsink.
--> Close the case and refit the case screw.
All of our computers have worked great after that fix. Hope it works for you.
