Question about Nexus Prolong:Extra Cooling after PC shut down

1 Answer

Random shut down

My acer aspire 3000 keeps shutting down randomly. i've restored my computer after deleting files that i shouldnt have. then when booting up, the "acer" screen comes up and it offers the "setup" option, but when i hit f2, nothing happens. after several re-boots, i've selected the default configuration, and when i open more than one web page, it shuts down. i've burned a bunch of files to cd and deleted them to expand my hard drive memory. i'm constantly deleting temporary internet files and cookies to increase virtual memory, but it doesnt work. please help me! i dont know what else to do! thank you!

    i tried updating my mcaffee anti virus, and it didnt work. how do i check the psu voltage output? the fans are all spinning on boot up, and i've blown all the dust out of the system, is there something i can detach to clean it out?

    i'm not exactly sure what the atx connector or the dmm is, but when i hit control/alt/del, it shows that my cpu usage is around 5%, when i have a web page open. i do not get a blue screen before it shuts down, but often the "acer" screen shows up that asks "press f2 for setup" and it stays there, requiring me to hit the power button and try to boot up again, and after 2 or 3 times, it finally boots up, but then it shuts down after about an hour. depending on what i'm doing (checking e mail, playing games, etc.)

    * Have you cleaned all the excess dust out of the system?

    * Have you checked the PSU voltage output values?

    * Are all fans connected and spinning up on POST (boot up)?

    * Have you considered backing up your necessary files & reinstalling windows?

The PSU voltages can be checked with a digital multimeter at the ATX connector, 3.3v (orange), 5.0v (red) & 12v (yellow) if the DMM is indicating values of MORE than 5% variation your PSU is the likely villain (best to rule it out first).

Are you getting a BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) or error messages when you PC randomly shuts down?

Does "Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu. " erase my memory or files from computer?


No, delete restoration data just removes data that was saved just before your computer crashed or shut down without going through the normal shut down procedure. The operating system makes little temporary files while you are working on something so that it can restore them if the system goes down. Nothing happens to your real data files, documents, music, pictures, videos or memory.

Acer 5002 laptop shutoff randomly


Try to cool the laptop in the sense, do not use it for some time, approx two three hrs then try to re install...
But if your laptop is old then the problem could be because the fans working beneath get old and do not run upto the mark..usually they have two fans i believe...maybe one is conked?

Hope this helps
