Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Screen problems/overheating problems

Ok, I have an Acer 4520 Laptop. Vista OS. I have myself set up as Administrator and two other profiles set up. One one of them when we switch users the other profile comes up into only what I can describe as 3 mini split screens of the desktop. I can shut down from there but when I restart the screen remains black, I think the black screen is from an overheating problem.

I've done windows updates including drivers. Do I need to go to Acer's website and update all of my drivers from there or does someone else have a suggestion?

Hi,

Auto settings in NVIDIA control panel are those which control the temperature of the system.

It will check the fans revolution per minute and temperature. Actually it is always better to keep your system in an air-conditioned room which won't result in overheating.

By installing the case fans, it will divert heat out of your computer and increase the air-flow.

If it's an overheating problem, updates won't help, cooling will. With the unit turned off, blow out all vents & screens on the bottom, sides & back of the unit. Get a cooling unit to put under the laptop. Mine dropped the temperature about 30 degrees and it hasn't shut off since I started using it.

If it's not from overheating, the way you have Vista setup to view different users windows should be changed.

your computer your laptop will just shut itself down and get a black screen unexpectedly, which is due to: power overload in the AC adapter, overheated processor / clogged fan, overheated battery, pushing the power button, Windows telling it to, the BIOS telling it to, loose wires (especially the power cord), or intermittent short circuits. The most common problem is cooling. the battery should be removed from the laptop and allowed to cool to room temperature before attempting to use again.
