Hi grade laptop fan not working


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a can of compressed air to do this.

Hi, my acer aspire 5315 switches itself off when it gets hot? It has been doing this for a few months now! My cousin also has the same laptop and same problem!! I would be grateful if you could...


this can be possible if your laptop is AMD processor. kindly check the cpu fan if working, system will shutdown once cpu reach the temperature set from the bios. change the fan if not working.

I've had my acer aspire (5315) laptop for over 2 years


Hello,

Sometimes, the CPU heat sink fan might get clogged up or faulty or stop spinning entirely. Make sure that the fan can turn properly.

IF YOU CAN, open the unit when the battery is disconnected and the power is not connected, then reseat the CPU Heat sink and re-apply a eye drop heat sink thermal paste onto the CPU. Reconnect and tighten everything again properly and adhere to the sequence in turning the screws back as per their numbering on the heat-sink

If the FAN has trouble spinning, doesn't turn at all or is noisy and runs irregular please replace the fan. The fan alone should cost about a few US $.

ACER Aspire 6530 - Windows Vista sound problem


I had the same problem, and it always seemed to be a resource issue. (CPU running near 100%). Somehow my Acer ePower Plan was set to "balanced" and when i looked at the settings for CPU speed when the computer was plugged in, it was set to LOW !!! So, I changed it high, rebooted and it now sounds great.

Processor


I told you my opinion, If I was in your shoes I won't upgrade the CPU.Professionals do not do works against Factory specifications, and I fixcomputers for living.
Acer says Pentium dual is not supported on Acer 4315, I can only tell you not to do such an upgrade.
Itwould be the same as if you ask me if you can mount a Jaguar engine ona Mini, yes, for sure there is the way to mount it, but the car won'twork as it is supposed to, and risk to blow at first corner.
If you really want to replace your CPU consider the following.
Acersays pentium 2 dual core is not supported on 4315, if you do ityourself you risk to damage the computer. Do not do the CPU upgrade ifthis is your only laptop, or if you care of this laptop, chance ofdamaging laptop are high. This kind of upgrades are done more as anexperiment.
I know Core 2 Duo T5300 1.73 Ghz had been installedsuccessfully on Aspire 4315, Acer says not to install any core duo, Iknow for sure Pentium duo T5200 1.6 Ghz works on Aspire 4315 with noneed for replacing cooling system.
Both chipset are difficult to find, best place to find them is Ebay.
