You need to stop playing these kind of games on the lapop, this is because latops are not built for gamers, and the graphics card cannot support the game, this causes the laptop processor to heat up, thats why the fan is on constantly and eventually crashes, check the games minimum system requirements before installing and playing games, you can purchase a graphics accelerator card that plugs into the USB slot boosting the graphics but these devices are still very expensive


kind regards

The cooling fan is on


Usually the fan stays on because your PC is overheating! First try and see your PC has at least 5 cm (2 in) space all round.
2. Dust
You computer fan may have accumulated a lot of dust, which causes the fan to run continuously. Purchase compressed air spray and spray the computer fan to loosen up any dust that may have accumulated. Most computer fans are exposed, so accessing the fan should not be a challenge. Brush the blades with a soft artists brush if the dirt is still on, but GENTLY
3. Technical issues
In some cases, your computer may have either a defective fan or thermostat. Some Computer providers allow you to purchase a new fan and replace it yourself. For thermostat issues, you may have to contact a computer repair professional for assistance.
4. Computer is overworked
Depending on the age of your computer multiple programs that are running can cause it to overheat. Watching a lot of DVDs, playing video games, and listening to music on your computer also can cause overheating. Considering closing some of your programs and rebooting your computer.

I have an acer aspire ax5900. The video card fan vibrates loudly for the first 10 minutes after start up. I am told I need a new video card. Is this correct and where is the best place to get one?


Your Acer Aspire, like any other desktop computer system, contains fans inside the case to help vent the heat generated by the internal components.
These fans generally operate quietly and reliably, working in the background to prevent your computer from overheating.
A fan that sounds excessively loud could indicate a problem such as overheating or loose internal components, or it could simply be a normally loud fan.
The key to differentiating between the two involves looking for additional clues from your computer.
Normal Operation
Due to computer configuration and build quality, the fans in some desktops sound louder than others.
Depending on what other brands of computers you've owned or have had experience with, the fan in the Acer may sound louder, when it's actually functioning perfectly.
The fan will run to keep the inside of the computer from overheating, so periodic runs are normal. If the fan runs for long periods or very often, you may have a deeper problem.
Fan Damage and Overheating
A fan can sound loud due to damage, such as broken blades or to a build-up of dirt that impedes normal operation.
This dirt, as well as normal wear and usage, can wear away the lubricant coating on the fan's internal shaft, causing the blades to make excessive noise as they turn. In many cases, a loud fan indicates that the computer is overheating, causing the fan to run more often than usual to try and cool the system.
Depending on the types of components and upgrades within your Acer computer, your current fan may be too small and weak to handle the heat output, and require upgrading to a larger, more powerful fan.
Troubleshooting
Take note of when the fan turns on and how long it runs to determine any distinct patterns, whether if it occurs only during certain processes or programs.
Your computer's CPU generates a large amount of heat while in operation, so programs that require large amounts of CPU usage may trigger the fan more often.
Watch for additional signs of overheating, such as sudden shutdowns or computer crashes. Check inside the case for signs of other components touching the fan and causing vibration noise.
Solution
Do not overtax the CPU by opening numerous processor-intensive programs at once.
Check that all screws, cards and wires are securely fastened and away from the fan.
Keep your computer clean inside and out, to prevent the build-up of dirt on the fan blades or air vents and minimize the threat of overheating.
Apply a drop of oil to your fan's shaft to give it proper lubrication and smooth, quiet rotation of the blades.

My acer z5600 crashes with multicoloured screen when playing games


Ya it sounds like your video Card is dying, though you can check with different RAM and try some normal games which don't need high Graphic. You have PCI Graphic card fitted on it then try removing and playing the game, then this way you can know what is the fault.

Just want to now what is the biggest duo 2 cpu can you put in the acer aspire l310 desktop


This is the standard equipment for your model.
Problem is, your system is already maxed out for heat.
If you add a faster CPU, you will most likely suffer from overheating, but yes you can add up to a 3 gig+ duo with no problem fitting it in the socket. Expect your power supply fan to run constantly though.

Processor: 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo E6300
Memory: 1GB DDR2
Storage: 320GB hard drive
Optical Drives: Double-layer DVD±RW
Monitor: None
Graphics: Integrated Intel GMA 3000
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium

I got an Acer aspire M3610 desktop. whenever I launch a game and play online, it crashes. I turned off my firewall and tried it again, and it still crashes, I tried restarting my PC and it still crashes...


Sounds like you are running out of system Ram or "System resources" and the game freezes the system up. Once the RAM is allocated, the CPU will go to 100% and lock the system up trying to re-allocate ram to the programs wanting it.

Computer keeps shutting off


the fans must work for the processor not to overheat..

thats why it crashes.. processors or certain hardwares need a certain temperature for it to run.

try repairing the fan it will help. and also clean dust on your board it insulates and increases heat inside causing your pc not to last long

Hi,
These can get warm/Hot under constant use.
If it,s new i,d suggest you may have a faulty card.
I,m not sure whether you can actually remove the fan from the GPU Chip, but if you can.
I,d reseal with a quality thermal compound such as arctic-silver or similar. Theres a possibility that the card has overheated and damaged the thermal-seal between gpu and heatsink.
The other option, is to direct a fan blowing cool air towards the card, rather than trying to extract air from it.
If it,s new it,s faulty ( get it replaced )
If i can be of any further assistance/help.
Please post here.

Many thanks mike @ compurepair.
