Question about Acer Aspire T310 PC Desktop

1 Answer

No boot up screen

I switch it on but nothing comes up on the screen, the fans are going at full speed and they don't slow down to normal speed like before. I took the memory module out and it doesn't even beep when I try to turn it on again. It doesn't even make a beep when I switch it on. Is the mobo gone?

Re: No boot up screen


The mother Board is a possibility, but I think that first I would check the main power supply. It is best to substitute in a known good PS to verify. If a good power supply fails to correct. I would look on the mother board for obvious hot spots or electrolytic capacitors with bulging tops or shrunken PVC outer coverings. Manufacturers have built with defective or incorrectly marked capacitors before. I have repaired several by just replacing the caps that had overheated and started to vent pressure after doming their tops.

Good luck.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant

It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

I have a t6524 running xp media center sp3..everything inside is stock. The problem is sometimes when i try to turn it on the fans run full speed and the the hd status light comes on for about 15 seconds...

Remove the video card and connect the monitor to the onboard VGA. If the problem continues, check the power supply. If you have another with the same wattage rating, see if it works ok - it might be the power supply going out.

Dell precision m90 overheats randomly

Either your motherboard has gone bad, or you fan AND cooling grid needs replacement. The grid is simply a series of metal bars, so to speak, which absorb heat to be passed out of your system with the cooling fan. The cooling fan has 2 speeds. If the system is not kicking in the higher speed on the fan, it's more than likely a bad motherboard. Also, make sure you keep your laptop plugged into the wall as much as possible. Going on battery alone does slow down the processor considerably to conserve the battery.

Best wishes.

I just flashed my Bios Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 from F12 to F13. Now my CPU fan is at full speed. It's loud and driving me nuts. I've looked all through the bios to see if I can slow it down. Also, went on...

it's actually good that your cpu fan is runing at it's full speed. Usually only the manufacturer issues firmwares. Lookforward Gigabyte for the update. thanx

Random shut downs

Check the CPU fan it may not be spinning at the full speed or not turning at all. Check that there is not cable that is obstructing the fan blades. When the CPU over heats the machine will shutdown to save it from any damage. Then other thing to check is the power switch make sure that it is not sticky or stuck in. It also could be a memory issue but normally there will be a blue screen fault and audio beeps when you first switch on.

CPU fan races

thanks bigunit12 - as I suspected, no real concern

expect the noise is a pain.

I do think the HS might be marginal and so I shall replace sometime with a higher capacity model, also maybe increase fan flow capacity and add a case hot air extractor fan.

Just to make sure
