Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
We have two Acer laptops, my wifes wigged out like this about 6 months ago, and mine started shutting down before having a chance to do anything also. I got a Belkin elevate cooling pad and put it under my laptop, and not only is it working good now, it is running faster than it ever did.
The Motherboard has a sensor in it and if the CPU gets too hot it shuts down to protect it from frying, it will also slow down the processes first. If you have had this computer for a while, then when was the last time you blew the dust out of all the vents? When was the last time you took the back cover off and blew everything out well, or had it professionally cleaned?
The bottom line is, lots of things can go wrong, but it is amazing how much dust gathers in the vents quickly. Dust obstructing air flow or insulating cooling fins can cause excess heat to your CPU, and heat is a computers enemy. So much so, many gamers have gone to water collers for their CPU's to keep it as cool as possible. A cool CPU is a happhy CPU.
