Acer Aspire 3000 turning itself off and on again

Hi I am having a hideous time with my Acer Aspire 3000 which has been turning itself off for some time now.  I read in a blog that it could be the fan overheating and to sit the laptop on a baking tray to increase air circulation.  This worked for a few weeks but then the problem started again.  Now it has got to the stage where the computer won't get past the startup phase before switching itself off and then on again repeatedly. I am able to enter the setup screen and the laptop will remain powered while in setup.   Unfortunately I don't have recovery disks.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as this is frustrating the hell out of me.

    How do I clean the radiator?

  • imnogeek Oct 18, 2007

    Thank you for your help.  I did take it to an Acer service agent today and they told me that it was a software conflict.  They reverted it to factory setttings and it is now working fine.

In response to imnogeek...

I was reading your post and I have the EXACT same problem. I did a deep cleaning but I still have the same problem. Do you know of any other alternatives? Would you mind sharing?

  • if u have a steady hand unscrew the bolts from the back af the laptop, remove the keyboard, remove the panel and at least u get in the "zone", is a damn triky part! or use a powerful vacuum cleaner on the exit of hot air, but in all of the case u must dismount all the parts from him :( and is a frustrating job. 

  • if u don't know how is the best thing is to go on the service dep because is not a easy job for an not exp man.

  • glad to read that! :)

Hi, you can perform a system repair, by inserting your operating CD then booting and selecting this option.
Or you can start up in safe mode, by pressing the ESC key during bootup and selecting start in safe mode, from here you can roll back your system to a time before the problem started.
Hope this helps

ACER ASPIRE 3000 gets power off after some time automatically

If the laptop shuts down by itself and deosn't boot up again after some time, then the problem could be an over heating problem. The CPU shuts down when it overheats (thermal shutdown) and it is usually caused by a faulty fan and or the fan and heat-sink is clogged with dust.
Check the fan and if it does not spin freely then replace the fan and or remove the dust from the fan and heat-sink assembly.

Acer aspire 3000

remove your battery pack, then try again, the reason for this problem because your battery is already trash, i know this because we have the same problem. and one thing more to expect from our low end aspire 3000, it will shutdown itself when it's hot.

xave here, hope i explained clearly. I HATE ACER ASPIRE 3000 it sucks
