Re: Acer Aspire 3680-2022

There is a program, where you can manage the notebook, called "esettings". That has an option, to turn the fan allways on.

The cause can be either the motherboard is sensing the proccesor is overheating, but it isn't and is running becausse it thinks it needs to be cooled, which is not right, or the processor is actually running too hot, so check around all the vents, side and underneath and carefully hoover with an attachment around them, if it still continues, then a specialist repairer is requird to check board and processor.

Why isMy Acer aspire gettting really hot, would replacing the battery help?

Sometimes, the computer gets really hot because the "ventilation" (cooling) system (fan, etc.) is not working properly. Normally, if it gets too hot, i.e. to an unacceptable level, the system will shut down. Or, it will catch on fire.
Yes, it's known that some battery will get too hot ... and potentially damage the system. So, if you already know that the cooling system is working properly, then try replacing the battery.

Yes! the temperature is running to high probably due to much dirt build up in the heatsink ports and cooling fan, this needs to be serviced asp because the risk to the processor ic is high.

When my netbook is on charge why does it sound like the processor is over worked?

Your processor doesn't make noise. The noise you are hearing is most likely the fan. If it is the fan, the noise is because the processor is overheating which may be caused by the collection of dust or the computer sitting on a soft surface such as a couch or a bed and blocking the vent. Some computers just have very loud fans.

Acer Travel mate 7730 os xp laptop shuts down

make sure processor fan is working fine. you may hear the sound of fan on the left side of the laptop. and make sure its not getting heat soon. If the fan is not working you need to replace the fan. If if gets heat soon that means you have to put processor cooling paste.IF the fan is working fine and the processor heat is normal, then you need to re-fix the RAM. Then it will work fine..ok

Pc keeps freezing up making a strange noise, then has to be switched offat power button. special happens when listing to music or movie

This normally takes place when there's a problem with the processor. Well it could be your heat sink fan not running properly due to choke of dust particles, therefore making the processor over heat in stressful situations, causing the PC to freeze. If your fan is clean and running okay, then you would have to check your processor. If the problem persists, then you would have to check your memory since there are situations whereby a bad memory can also cause this.

All the best.

The fan is making a lot of noise. this has

Is the laptop dirty inside?

If it hasn't been cleaned out regularly, with a can of compressed air for computers, more than likely it is.

Laptops typically have a poor cooling design. For one, everything is crammed into a tiny box.
For two, there is a small duct, (Air Intake Duct), that draws air in.
For three, laptops typically just have 1 small fan.
For four, the Air Intake Duct is located on the bottom of a laptop, or on the side.
This is an excellent (?) area to draw foreign debris in. Another word for foreign debris, would be CRUD.

Hair, Food Crumbs, Lint, Dirt, Dust, and so on.

A laptop's cooling systems primary function is to keep the Processor at a certain temperature. If the processor becomes too HOT, it turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
NO Processor, No computer!

1.The excessive fan noise can be that the fan is spinning at top rate, trying to keep the processor cool. It's having a hard time doing that, because the fan cannot draw enough air in. (Clogged Cooling System with Crud)

2.The excessive fan noise could be that the fan's bearings are bad.

3.The excessive fan noise could be that the Processor is running at 100 percent, (100%), and the fan is running at full speed, in order to keep the processor cool.
Perhaps caused by a virus, or some sort of anti-virus program, or running more than one virus program. (Installed a new anti-virus program lately?)

Acer Aspire 4315, making noise near fan

You would need to open it, has the laptop been dropped? This is the only way I know that could cause this problem. I suggest you fix this problem because it will cause overheating of you chips, that will eventually cause failure. Opening a laptop is not for novice, unless you trust yourself you can do it, have it done in a shop that fixes laptops. Some electronic shop can do this for you at a resonable price.

Noisy laptop

If the noise is always coming (when no application is running) then there might be the issue with the processor fan cleaning.
