Acer 5002WLMi dies when downloading large files or video

Hello, My Acer runs fine normally until I try to download a large file or watch a video online (like the Netflix movies). I have a small network at home and I don't have the problem on my other computer.

Re: Acer 5002WLMi dies when downloading large files or...

Youtube is a big problem for my computer. So is making a movie with Windows Movie Maker. Even the video ads on the sides of web pages make hot air blow out the side. There's about three levels of hot air...softly blowing, then to blowing, then to blowing hard, then it clicks and shuts off. Mine doesn't freeze, though. Now, just doing anything will make it start to blow. Most of the time even ripping a cd onto my computer is too much for it, and it shuts off.

I have an Acer Aspire One and unfortunatley I put it into standby mode as did not want to shut down. I can't seem to get it to come back on. i have powered off taken the battery out tried to restart and...

Just sounds like the black screen of death... It happened to me after I turned it off normally.

Here’s what you need:
  1. USB Memory stick (as low as 128mb)
  2. Another PC with a net connection
  3. WinZip, WinRAR, or some other program that can extract zip files.
  4. A quick visit
  5. Your Acer Aspire One, that will power up/turn on, but the screen does not come on.
And here’s what you do:
  1. Go to and go through the DRIVER support pages until you get the Aspire One driver page for your relevant Aspire One model (110/150/751)
  2. Click on the tab on the download area that reads ‘BIOS’ even if it looks like you can’t click on it (their site design grays it out but it’s there) and download the BIOS file numbered 3310 (it might have changed version recently but do it) and don’t worry, you can trust this file, as it’s from Acer directly.
  3. Extract the zip once downloaded and find in the DOS folder the files ‘flashit.exe’ and 3310.fd
  4. When you’s ve found them, rename 3310.fd to ZG5IA32.fd and put this renamed file and ‘flashit.exe’ onto the USB memory stick
  5. Put the USB in the Aspire One and hold the keys ‘FN’ (function) and ‘Esc’ (escape) and keep them held when you turn the laptop on
  6. Watch the power button and when it starts flashing, press it once (DO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE)
  7. You should notice the USB (if it has a light) blinking as well… The netbook has started ‘flashing’ the BIOS and after about 7 minutes, the netbook should shutdown and reboot itself and VOILA! The screen should turn on just fine.
It took my three times but this IS the proper solution! I am now very happy with my Aspire One that still works!

How do i change recording format to avi as i cant upload any of my videos to my friends becuse video size is to large

Did you try using an online file sharing service? You can upload (large) files, get the link and email that to friends. They can then download the file.
There are services that offer GB's of space, so the file would not be too big quickly....

Just search for "online file sharing"

Acer Aspire 5002WLMi overheating


Ok, here is a link for the manual for this device. Just click on the link, once at the site, click get manual.

As far as the overheating goes. Are you sure that this is a overheating problem?? Have you tried formatting the laptop and reinstalling windows? Also if you are sure that this is an overheating problem, have you checked the CPU to see if there is some thermal paste on it?

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Kind regards

Cannot watch video on Acer 5100

Hi there
There are a few applications that you need to have installed on the PC for you to watch videos on line or from hdd.

first you will need adobe flash 10, download it and install it from here:

also download and install java from here:

Now thats the on-line software done, now you need "codecs", download and install these to allow you to watch the latest DIVX, XVID video files etc

and codec 8.3 here:

Install all of the above and restart your pc, then try to watch your media on the net and in a media player, the problem should now be resolved.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
