Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

4 Answers

Acer Aspire 5000 series laptop

Computer was running fine, then just shut off for no reason. (Click noice, and goes black) You could start it back up and it would boot fine, run anywhere from 3 - 10 minutes and then shut off again. Keeps shutting off over and over. that was my main problem. I called tech support, and they told me to do a restore with the disks that came with it. I thought that was a drastic step for a first resort, and I thanked them and hung up. Well after it kept doing it, and I couldn't use, I decided to do the restore. After starting restore it just keeps shutting off, so I can't get through the restore and now it definately won't boot because it had started doing restore and has probablly erased the hard drive, but it won't stay on long enough to get through the rest of the 3 disks. It is plugged in, so can't be battery. Help - computer is only slightly over 1 year old, with minimal usage!

    my problem is with aspire 3004wlci. The fan speeds up and then it shuts down. Doesn't do it all the time. I did re-install everything, didn't help, I tried a cooling pad, didn't work, acer techs last comment was possible video card problem. can anyone tell me how to replace it, or if you have had the same problem and found a solution.

If the fan on the processor is indeed spinning, then I would go to your local electronics store and buy some thermal compound. Spread some on the top of the processor and firmly mount the heat sink on top. That should solve your overheating problem.

Just check in the power options that anything is not set to shutdown if idle like the hard drive. it sounds really to be processor overheating problem, just check around the side and underside vents for any blockage. Does your fan appear to cut in at any point and stay on or not come on at all, as these things ay be a clue to the problem if it's the processor overheating and shutting down.

Break it off..........

In order to take the Base Enclosure (Bottom Cover) off, you would have to break it off.

The Acer Aspire 5000 series of Notebook PC's, disassembles from the Top down. When you are done you are looking at an empty Base Enclosure,

You have to;
Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
Remove the Harddrive Compartment Cover, Harddrive, Memory Compartment Cover, Ram Memory, Wireless Module, Wireless Antenna wires out of laptop body, Optical Disk Drive, (DVD drive), Display Assembly, (LCD Module), Keyboard Cover, Keyboard, Palm Rest Cover, Motherboard, and so on..........

Then you have the Base Enclosure. (Bottom Cover)

WEAR an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.

Acer aspire 5600awlmi going slow

Assuming stock LT go to start run and type msconfig and click ok. On the general tab select Diagnostic Startup and click ok, it will ask to reboot and seleck ok. After the reboot see if it is operating normally.

If it is working normally then some application is causing the problem. You can selectivly choose to launch one app at a time till you find the one causing the problem. Most likely is antivirus set too agressivley or spyware. Might consider a tool like spybot to clean the system.

Acer aspire 5600 shut down

it sounds like the video card cannot support or handle the pressure put on it by the game you are trying to play, if it is an OEM game have a look for the minium system requirements that the game will run on, you can also find this information on line, you will probably find out that the graphics card doesn't support the game, do this check with all games you try to play
another thing is to upgrade your memory because some laptops don't have a devoted graphics card thus they are relient on the system memory

good luck
