Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
Ive got a acer extensa 3000 laptop, the fan has stopped working which is causing the laptop to shutdown straight afta booting, sometimes it will work fine on cold dayz until the cpu overheats and shuts it down again i want to know what component is faulty or if it is the fan itself that is broken, i have tried all tests posted by other techs but all useless, need a specific answear or how to find the faulty part
Before anything make sure the air vents are not clogged. You can used canned air to blow out the air vents to make sure there is no buildup of dirt or dust cause that can cause overheating problems.
Look to see if the CPU fan turns on at all during the whole bootup process. The CPU fan won't run all the time but as long at its turning on at all during the bootup process then you know the fan is good.
If the fan never turns on at all and the laptop gets very warm or hot and then shuts off then the motherboard is bad cause that means to much voltage is going thru the motherboard and it can't cool down properly.
Hope this helps. If you can't physically see the fan turn on then where the cpu fan is located put your hand there and see if you can feel air flowing thru, hopefully it won't be hot air but slightly warm.
If you need any other info, let me know and I'll help you further.

Booting issues might be caused by power supply problems. If you plug in some other power cord, the laptop might turn on. This may be because the supply of power from the wall socket is not proper as per the needs of your laptop, or the cable that you are using with the laptop is damaged or broken from inside. You may try by changing the power cord or using another wall socket to power your PC. This can prove to be of great help most of the times.

You just solved your own issue. Its your fan(s) that need to be replaced. If you continue to run the laptop it will kill the processor from overheat.
