If the cooling works well the fan gonna shutdown automatic. nothing to worry about, but if it does when the computer is still hot then you need to replace the fan.

when it shutsdown, does it later start by it self?

Acer 5600U is loud


Probably overheating due to extreme dust clogging the CPU cooling heatsink and fan. Take off the side panel and blow it out with compressed air, and make sure all the circulation fans are running.

Way to slow down the z5610 acer fan? it runs loud after 2 years.


http://computershopper.com/desktops/reviews/acer-aspire-z5610

A) Needs to be opened up. Needs to be cleaned out inside.

Two years? Bet it looks 'scary dirty' inside. After you have cleaned out the inside, donate the 'Gunk' to local mice. They can use it for a condo. (I would charge them rent)

B) Processor may need old Thermal Paste replaced. Clean top of Processor, and bottom of finned Heatsink, and PROPERLY apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

Primer:
Air is used to cool the inside of that All-In-One desktop computer. The Processor and graphics chipset, are the two hardware components that give off the most heat.

The finned Heatsink, and Processor Fan, are the two cooling components for the Processor. When they get clogged with 'Gunk' over the years, the cooling capacity drops -> tremendously.

The Processor fan sensor, senses that the Processor is too hot, and speeds the Processor fan up. Also BIOS speeds the computer case fan/s up.

Could also be that the bearings for the fan/s are bad. Replacement fan, or fans are needed.

ONE THING HOWEVER Karl, to work on this All-In-One you need to wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip connected to a good ground source.
This is just like working on a LAPTOP computer, NOT a desktop.

Average example,

(And of course unplugged from power)

Need guidance in cleaning, and replacing the Thermal Paste, just post back in a Comment. I will guide you.

Hi theossva...
Try to restore your computer to an earlier time when things were working properly.

Left click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Restore.

This should bring you back to a time when the computer was operating properly

The heat sink may be clogged with dust and ifthe BIOS temperature sensor controls the fan speed then it may be compensatingfor the reduced cooling by the dust build-up.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust.

Acer Computer Turns Off


Hey ArtWest,

One of the most common reasons why this might occur is if your computer is overheating due to poor circulation or blocked ventilation. As such, I'd first suggest giving the computer a thorough cleaning using an air duster, and making sure that the external vents are not plugged. If there's any kind of obstruction blocking these vents, the internal temperature of your computer can rise to the point that it must shut itself down to prevent any kind of damage. Remember to always hold these dusters at least six to eight inches away from the surface(s) being cleaned, as they have been known to leave liquid residues behind or freeze surfaces when held too close.

Additionally, overheating may be caused by the failure of an active heat sink (fan). If you feel confident in opening your computer's case, you may wish to verify that all of the fans are working correctly when the computer is in operation. Many computers will have at least two internal fans: one to cool the CPU, and one to cool the case itself. Some models may have several extra fans to cool the video card or to help improve circulation.

Assuming that cleaning the computer does not resolve the problem and all of your internal fans are still operational, you could potentially be looking at a more serious problem: a possible defective processor or motherboard.

Remember though that any repairs not performed by a factory-authorized technician may void your warranty coverage, so make sure to contact Acer first if your warranty is still in effect.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Over Heating Problem In Acer Aspire L100


There are two solutions to this problem. First set the fan in the PC Bios to rub at full speed all the time. This was too noisy for me.

Second, If you are running Windows Vista, you can adjust the Maximum Porcessor Utilization. From the Windows Control Panel select the Power Options icon. Then select "Change plan settings" for which ever power plan the PC is set to use. Then select "Change advanced power settings". Expand the "Processor power managment" by clicking on the "+" symbol. Finally click on the "+" for "Maximum processor state". I would try changing this setting to "90 %". This worked fine on my ACER L100 and it no longer overheats.

Computer keeps shutting off


the fans must work for the processor not to overheat..

thats why it crashes.. processors or certain hardwares need a certain temperature for it to run.

try repairing the fan it will help. and also clean dust on your board it insulates and increases heat inside causing your pc not to last long
