Question about Acer Aspire 1690 Notebook
My almost 3 year old Acer Aspire 1694 WMLi (DDR2) has gone mad and is about to make me follow it...
Six Months ago I ran a 3d game on it, as I just happen to do from time to time, and didnt realize that the fan stopped working, I eventually discovered it didnt by almost burning the tips of my fingers to the damn thing.
I turned it off and let it ool down,the next morning the symtoms were apparent:
-Battery not charging,
-fan making a screeching noise and worst of all
-the keyboard is randomly "swallowing" keys when i type making work a real pleasure.
and now the strange part, 3 months ago, out of the blue everything worked properly again.. ...
Joy oh joy, but as you might have guessed a week ago the symtoms returned...
I'd greatly appreciate any insightyou could give me to this problem
Thx in advance
Its easy to clean fan and will be silent again like sleeping baby. Open 3 screws take black panel covering fan off. Than open 4 small screws and carefully clean it. There should be loads off dust.

If your Fan Failed it might have overheated your Laptop and CPU to the point where it damages it and that would explain your symptoms well. That fan is worrying since it may have melted and not working properly. Get it looked at as it may now need a CPU and/Or Motherboard replacement or hopefully just a new fan but it needs physical fixing none the less
Hope this helps
