When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with 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 sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

How do I fix Acer Travel-Mate 5744, The laptop cannot boot. There is a brief Brand Name Acer and then it goes back off.


Heating the motherboard enough to repair a dry joint is rather folly. It will do more harm than good unless you heat both sides simultaneously at controlled temperatures..

Remove hdd and RAM. See what happens when you try to boot. You should get a DOS screen. If not, replace the motherboard.

My acer travemate 7720 keeps powering off without any warning


To me that sounds like it is getting hot somehow, like the heat sink is blocked with lint. The fan might be burnt out...Next time listen for the fan to come on...and find the vents where hot air should be comming out..and see if that is happening...If the fan is comming on and it is blocked up(from the inside) it still will overheat, meaning you would have to disasble the laptop to remove the lint from the heatsink.

Acer Travelmate 6592G Charging problem


The power adapter id under powered by 1.32A that is why it takes a long time to charge and it is putting a lot of stress on the adapter and could cause it to overheat. The ticking sound could be the thermal cut out cutting the power to the laptop to prevent the power adapter from failing.

Travel mate 8210 heating and there seem to be noise comming from the fan


When the CPUoverheats it goes into thermal shutdown and will not boot up again until theCPU has cooled down.
The heat sink may be clogged with dust, which causes the CPU to overheat byreducing air circulation through the heat sink. If you are notusing your laptop on a flat surface, it may be obstructing the cooling vents onthe bottom of the laptop. Your laptop fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
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. A laptop fanassisted cooling pad may solve your problem

My acer travelmate 2500 overheats when playing games


The cooling on the Acer Travelmate 2500 is worse than most because it contains thin copper heatsink fins which grab the dust as it flies past. Great for getting rid of heat; terrible for getting rid of dust.

prise off the two corner pieces that cover the hinge for the screen. Underneath there are two screws. Remove these, then peel away the keyboard and the plastic covering. There you will see the fan system. Four screws (on springs - careful) will have this away but be aware of the power cable which is tucked in behind a piece of metal. At all times be careful not to damage the keyboard ribbon cable which is usually pretty fragile.

Another few screws (tiny ones) will have the top of the fan off then you can clean and put it all back together. The result: a laptop that actually blows air through and cools what it should.
Kindly rate if this helped Regards
