Overheating. Try using canned air and blowing out vents. If you are comfortable with it, take the laptop apart and clean it out. If not, contact a local computer shop that can do it for you. If cleaning doesn't do it, the CPU heatsink will need reseated or the CPU will need replaced.

Acer extensa 4630z I am trying to reboot Vista but I cannot get to the proper screen. I can get no further than Edit Windows boot options for: Microsoft Windows Vista


You may have to get a CD/DVD of Vista from your friend or associate for reinstallation of the operating system. If you go to Windows 7 or 8.1 you would be better off than waste time with Vista and all of its problems. If the CD Drive is not working, get an External USB CD/VDV drive from WalMart. They are not expensive and they come in handy at times. Plug the external CD/DVD into a USB port and start up the computer seeking the new device. Run the Software the same as you would from your unstable device.

Why does it turn off by it's self and it say it


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error if this fails to fix the problem
another possible reason could be a memory dump make sure your computer ram modules are securely seated wit no dust in the sockets also your Cmos battery has secure seating
you might be running to many programs at the one time placing to much strain on the CPU running your computer over its limits also you might not have enough RAM random access memory to check what is running when your computer is running scroll to the bottom toolbar right click select task manager applications and processes if you see something you dont need running select end now and you might uninstall some of the unnecessary programs
hope this helps

My IBM T22 LAPTOP cooling fan does not work . When I start LAPTOP SYSTEM START BUT FAN NOT RUN. I dont know whether it its problem or not.


If the fan is not running, your computer will definately have a problem very soon. Sometimes, the fan is just clogged up by dust and debris. Head down to a local computer store or one of the box stores and purchase some compressed air dusters.
Dust out the fan and vents as best you can. If the fan still does not spin, your computer will easily overheat and, in all probablilty, shut down on you at random.
If left for too long, this could cause multiple other problems for your computer. I would recommend you look at getting the fan replaced as soon as possible if you cannot get it to work by dusting it out.
Good Luck!

High speed fan


the thermo switch determine how high and how long the fan need to run to obtain the proper temperature, it will be a consern if the fan doesn't run.
as far as the upgrade of your machine. do you have enough RAM (2GB minimum) and how is the CPU?(1.6GHz or better) can the CPU handle the operating system. Since you didn't mention that, and by reading what you say, I believe the machine is not able to handle the Vista, that is why the fan is running at high speed and non-stop. The CPU is getting hot, and the power supply is pulling lots power.
Vista loading takes approximately 1-2 minutes, dependent on how many applications you have installed and what you have on the desktop.
roll back to XP from Vista is no possible, the only way is to reformat and reinstall XP.

Hard drive replacement


Can only find one manual for this machine and the download is only compatible with Windows ME. The hard drive is located in the front left hand corner of the machine. Look at the front for a retangular panel, held by two screws, that slides out. Also, with some of the older Toshibas to acess the drive, you had to remove the plastic that surrounds the keyboard, holding the mouse buttons.

Overheating problems


This is common with laptops if you use programs that use power. The notebook gets hot when the processor and hard drive are working hard. You are doing the right thing with the fan. They make coolers that go underneath the laptop that have fans for this reason. Check out this link.The link will explain everything. Never use your laptop on a flat surface. If you can find a cooler that is curved you are better off. Walmart has a good one. Also take everything apart that you can and blow it OUT. (Use a vacuum with a plastic hose if possible.)

Please rate this as a Fixya since I explained everything. This will keep my name near the top of the page. Thanks and enjoy your laptop.
