Question about Acer Aspire 7530 7530g 7730 7730g 7730z Optical Drive Front Bezel Cover

1 Answer

Got an ACER 7530G with a thermal isue. After some time it shuts immediately down. Seems to be a thermal processor problem. Fan is running, no dust inside. Processor temperature is between 52deg. C and 66 deg. (processor cover removed) without any programs running. Any good ideas? Faulty processor?

If the fans are spinning then you need to take off the heatsink and ensure that there is paste between the heatsink and the CPU (its a golden or silver color normally). If not, go buy thermal paste.
If there is paste, then the heatsink was not placed properly on top of the CPU. Even if 3 corners are properly inserted and only one is not properly done, this can certainly cause overheating.

most of the models you posted only came with a Celeron 800 MHz cpu, (you can confirm this by r clicking on my computer and going to general tab) it will not support more than a 900 speed cpu if so

SOURCE: AMD Turion 64x2 Processor Upgrade Problem

Yes it's the BIOS, which holds a list of supported CPUs (with the right min/max settings for Vcore, FSB, multiplier (or HyperTransport as it's called for AMD chips), etc.). When you put in a newer unrecognized CPU, it either runs at a failsafe (very slow) setting or won't boot at all.

The only solution is to flash a newer BIOS version which supports the CPU. I searched the Acer website and found the newest BIOS version 3315 (dated 2008-12, which is pretty new imho), which you can download (including the required flash software) here: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/BIOS/BIOS/BIOS_3315.zip?acerid=633643256207419447&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire 5050&OS=V10&LC=nl&SC=EMEA_18

Perhaps you already have this BIOS version and I'm not sure wether your new CPU is supported by this BIOS, but you might give it a try.

Please note that flashing your BIOS might fail & brick the laptop and is at your own risk, but when following the instructions carefully, it's only a very small chance things go wrong. I've done it a dozen times without any problem ...

Acer aod257 freezes up after about 10 minutes. runs hot. Any ideas?


Overheating 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.

Aspire 5315 0verheats and shuts down


The problem is in the cooling fan and heatsink, laptop must be dismantled down to the motherboard level, remove fan and heatsink, use a can of compressed air to blow out the clog of dust and dirt blocking the heatsink ports and cooling fan, next get some rubbing alcohol and a paper towel and clean the thermal grease from the processor and heatsink. Now apply a fresh thin layer of thermal grease to both items and assemble, this will fix most thermal issues.

Dell d610 shuts down while playing games


Some games require more processor use, some less.

If the games that cause your computer to shut down feature high resolution graphics or fast 3D rendering, then the problem could be insufficient processor cooling. Once the processor gets overheated, it goes into thermal shut down.

If, while you play, the computer runs hot before it shuts down (check the cooling fan outlet), then these are some of the possible reasons:

-cooling fan blades could be obstructed by dust - cooling fan needs to be cleaned or replaced

-heatsink radiator and / or air outlet could be obstructed by dust - also need(s) to be cleaned

-thermally conductive grease on the microprocessor heatsink could be
partially or entirely dried up - old grease needs to be carefully removed and new grease applied (caution - do not use any kind of thermal grease that contains metallic particles like silver or aluminium - you might short out the processor - only use the kinds which are electrically nonconductive)

of course the problem could be elsewhere, but the above mentioned problems turn out to be a common issue with many laptop computers after a few years use, regardless of manufacturer brand and model, also it could be any of or the combination of any or all of the above problems (obstructed air outlet leads to more dust being deposited on the fan blades, more dust on the fan and outlet leads to processor overheating which leads to thermal grease drying which leads to even more overheating and so on...)

hope this helps somewhat

Gaming (and graphics application) consumes more CPU/ Processor resources and due to the heavy processing the PC (CPU & GPU) heatup. Excessive heatup beyond usual is alarming and PC shuts down by itself when the processor/ GPU temperature exceeds the safe temperature limit. There are mainly two reasons for heatup.
Laptop heating issue generally occurs due to fan failure, which may damage the system, if not checked properly. Another most likely cause of overheating is the dust present inside the laptop, which clogs the fan and heatsink.
1. Make sure the fan is running. (if not it needs replacement)
2. Clean the fan and heat sink (thermal module). Click here for GENERAL Acer Laptop disassembly instructions and refer to
Removing the System Fan/Thermal Module after removing the outer cover. Take out the fan and heat sink. clean them with the help of tooth brush and put it back. Also, repair manual can be searched online or downloaded for referrence.
The procedure is very simple, but if you are not comfortable with working inside electronics, I suggest that you should get you laptop checked by a professional for servicing (if required). I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it Helps! Let me know if i could be of any further assistance.

Over heating laptop shuts down


What is happening is that the processors thermal shut down safety is activating. Cleaning the fan and vents was a good first step but there is something else that needs to be done in order to make sure the processor is not overheating. First, make sure the fan is running at all times. If it is for the duration you're observing and the laptop is still shutting off, then the problem may lie at the heatsink-processor interface. This is where the heatsink sints on the processor face and has a thin layer of thermal paste between the two. If there has been a breakdown in the thermal paste and it is not doing its job, then you can have a thermal shutdown.
Now, the nice thing about your system is that you can clean the heatsink fan and grills just by taking off the bottom panel. Unplug the wiring harness for the fan and unscrew the heatsink off the processor slot. Clean the surfaces well with alchohol and let dry, then apply a very thin layer of thermal paste to the heatsink, screw it back down on the processor. Now leave this panel access door off while you power the system back up, that way you can easily observe what is going on in this area. Make sure to use good clean compressed air from an pffice supply chain to blow out all vent and compartments. Do not use the sir while the system is powered on just in case some condensation escapes from the can.. Good luck, below is the link to the service manual for that laptop. An illustrated guide of the disassembly starts on page 70.

Gateway 7405 GX Fully shuts down at random intervals


It sounds like a thermal shut down when the processor over heats,one thing it might be is that the heat sink is not seated properly on the processor.When removing the heat sink make sure you have thermal paste to place between the processor and heat sink.That should give you a good starting point.
