Question about Acer Aspire 5630 Notebook

1 Answer

My notebook restarts during graphics intensive games

My Acer Aspire 5630 notebook restarts anywhere from 5min to 2 hours after I start playing a graphics intensive game. I got a program that tells me the CPU temp, normally while idle it sits about 45-49 degrees Celsius, but I've seen it get to 80 Celsius during a game. I bought external fans and I took off some of the panels on the bottom of the computer to use canned air but the problem still persists. I've had the computer for about a year and a half, and I've had this problem for as long as I can remember. Thanks for any help!

It is a thermal problem. Try upgrading your internal fans & if possible install a graphics card cooler. Hope this helps.

A critical part from the video driver is corrupted. Since this happens only in cases of severe malware infection, the best way to deal with that is to completely reinstall windows.

Switch on my acer 5630 and the power light comes on and the fan kicks in for a couple of seconds and then shuts off. There is no output/no bios/ nothing like the machine has died? help please


It sounds like it has overheated and the cut-out is turning it off before it will start. Depending how ow the machine has become it can take a while for it to restart. My worst case for overheating was a couple of hours before the machine would start.
Please let me know how you get on.

I have a problem with fps. When i bought my acer 5315,the fps was good when i played games, but suddenly the fps dropped to 2-8. I have tried updating all the drivers and stuff and dont know what to do


Games always need RAM and Graphics cards to keep the frames from stuttering.Your Acer
Manufacturer: Acer Product MPN MPN Aspire 5315-2153 Key Features Processor dtrquestion.gif Celeron M 1.73 GHz Hard Drive dtrquestion.gif 80 GB Serial ATA Display 15.4 in. WXGA+ TFT Active Matrix Processor Processor Type dtrquestion.gif Celeron M Processor Speed dtrquestion.gif 1.73 GHz Memory Installed RAM 1 GB
is low on both.Win XP x32 likes 3GB of RAM and Vista wants even more.The Frames Per Second is purely a Graphics Processor Hog.
This is from Fixya website;
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1531241-acer_5315_series_laptop_get_better
Your graphics card "is" built in and cannot be upgraded.The latest drivers "from Intel" is your only option for an upgrade. To be less graphics intense decrease your screen resolution by right clicking your "desktop" and clicking "properties" then "settings".Move the pointer left one click "screen resolution".The screen will jump around a bit while it's resetting,hit "apply" and "ok".The resolution will now be less but your game will speed up-some-ultimately this laptop is not built for fast paced games.Sorry bout the news,take care!

Acer aspire 5600 shut down


the only way you can upgrade the graphics on a laptop is to purchase a graphics accelerator card that plugs in to the usb slot, its not an upgrade as such but it will allow you to play high res games on the laptop, there would have to be a memory upgrade to go with that also

Nvidia are doing some good laptop accelerators at the moment but they are expensive!!!

kind regards

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

Playing high graphics games on acer aspire 4315


Check the requirements printed at the back of each game. this will tell you if the game runs. If some game is slow try disabling the antivirus while you run the game, remember to restart antivirus afterward.
Do not use software accelerator, majority of them are useless, some of them carries malaware and viruses.
