The rivets holding the screws holding the CPU heatsink on the main board have come adfift. Refit the rivets loosly back onto the mainboard then fit longer screws (10 or 11mm). These will screw through the heatsink, rivets and board into threads built into the lower case. If you own a 4150 you will almost certainly need to do this unless you have already had it repaired under warranty. I reckon about a 80% failure rate in my experience

That is where the processor and fan are situated, so dont worry as long as it is kept ventillated the heat is naturaly expected

If you have Windows XP, right click on My Computer and select Properties; then select the tab Advanced and unselect the option Automatically restart as in the example here below 64bbe3f.gif,
Next time there is this issue I'm expecting your laptop to show a blue screen with some codes and some indication of the fault instead of shutting down.
When you will see the blue screen, please take note of the first message on the top left (For example IRQ_GREATHER_THEN or something similar) and all the numbers shown below.
In this way we can understand in what direction we need to go.
After you took note of all these information you have to manually reboot your laptop.
Let me know.

I have a presario cq56 notebook laptop, the laptop is working, but the fan does not seem to be. feels hot, but not extremely. when surfing the web, everything runs slow. please help!!!!!

Now a days laptop's FAN are automatic , if the laptop is extreme heat or when ever there is work load on your laptop processor like while playing games, or watching movies etc than only your laptop fan moves.

i feel your laptop might be infected with virus ... just scan with updated antivirus.

f you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:

  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

    So if your Acer TM4150 meets this minimum requirements, then you can install the windows 7 OS

I can't watch movies in my laptop, even the downloaded movies i can't watch it. where can i watch?

you need to find an approprieate programme that will be able to play movies of any format.

go to and download VLC or Videolan and a Gomplayer or Divx. I am sure that these would be able to play you your movies.

have fun

I cannot figure out how to bring up my dvd player. i like to watch movies, but i dont know how to get it installed. i hope you can help me. i have an acer aspire 5315-2698. thank you very much.

Usually when you insert the DVD you should get an autoplay menu that asks which program you want to use to play the DVD (such media player etc)
Acer usually has a bundled software that allows you to watch DVD movies it could be called WinDVD ,PowerDVD choose that program to play the film.
