You need to make sure the fan is running and you need to clean the heat sink. you can try to blow it out with canned air the best thing to do is disassemble if you are to the point of overheating.

If your laptop heats up in normal circumstances, there might be dust accumulated in the fans and heat vents. Take your laptop to the nearest service center or any computer shop (if it is out of warranty) and get it cleaned. Also when you're working, make sure you dont block the heat vents in your laptop.

Commercial fan on evaporator cuts off after starting


There is an overheat klixon on the evaporator that stops the fan running until the coil gets below -11c This can take some time after startup. if the freezer runs more than an hour before the fan starting, check the klixon isn't faulty, and you have power to the fan. Also check the condenser grille is nice and clean as it will slow down the freezing process.

Freezing


A computer/notebook/laptop can freeze due to a lot of reasons. Here are few noteworthy ones. Check them and see if they help, if not then post a little detail of when it freezes more etc:

a) Antivirus programs have a great tendency of eating up memory quite quickly. So, get a lightweight antivirus program like Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast etc.

b) If you have a low RAM then it is recommended that you run very few applications at the background. Avoid running any unnecessary applications.

c) If you have a desktop set with lots of transitions and effects it can cause huge RAM and often results in freezing of system.

d) Your O/S could be a problem too. If the above things doesn't help try resetting/re-installing the O/S and hopefully it shall help you a lot.

e) Check your system for any viral activities. You can perform an online scan using many free online scanners like Trend Micro etc.

Acer Aspire playing music & video too fast, chipmunk speed.


Go to your sound card settings under start settings control panel, select the real tek audio then in there there should be settings on how your sound comes out of your computer make sure that it is not set on some funky audio morphing setting. Someone must have played some pranks on you but yes its total fixable with a couple strokes of the mouse. ruldss2008

Adding an external monitor slows down my laptop to a crawl.


Looks like you have a memory leak of some sort. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete on your keyboard, and task manager should come up. If your computer is set up differently, then a dialog box will come up with a six buttons on it, you should click on task manager. Go to the preformance tab, and you should see your memory usage. If you go to the Processes tab, you should be able to see which process is using the most memory. From then on (depending on whether you have more or less computer experience) you should be able to solve the problem yourself. If you don't have much experience, just report back with as much detail as you can manage.
