Overheating I have an Acer 4315 laptop and it seems as though it gets unreasonably hot. Is the problem just a dirty fan, or do I have to buy a new fan or something? Thanks.

Assuming that your fans are spinning, and it is just a matter of turning your laptop over while it is running and see if you can see the fans or feel the air flow.

However, if your system has never been cleaned, I would perform a cleaning.

This is what a laptop may look like, from the inside no air can flow.

A normal cleanup may not blow out the dust, so an internal cleaning is best.

These are what clean heat sinks are supposed to look like.

Good luck

Yes this is most likely your problem, unscrew and clean fan if possible, if cleaning does not solve a new fan should do the trick.

System overheating after boot up


First open Task MGR and make sure your CPU is not spiking, running it's full speed because a program or virus, trojan.

If the CPU is only at 1-10 percent then it's the fan.

I keep getting a white blank screen on my Acer Aspire 4315. Sometimes on boot-up, other times while in the middle of a task. It is running Vista and has only 1GB of memory so I've ordered 2GB. Not sure...


A blank white screen generally indicates a video problem on a laptop. This can be a bad lcd data cable, a bad video driver, or an overheating/disconnecting video chip.

My ACER aspire 5742G frequently turns off on its own. suggest please.


Hi,

If you are using the ac adapter and your laptop still turns off frequently, you're probably having a problem with "overheating".

If you notice that the unit gets hot, or the vents are not blowing out air as normal before it turns off, surely you need to either clean the fan or replace it.

Accumulated dust in the fan will affect its performance which can cause overheating. Though the unit will not get too hot, the laptop will turn itself off to protect itself from further damage. Use a canned air to blow out dust from the fan.

If this will not work, I suggest to take the laptop to a repair shop for further diagnostic.

Hope this helps.

My acer gets hot. the fan quit working i think. when it is hot it freezes and you have to turn it off, let it cool then turn it on. you lose the document you are creating. How can i stop it from freezing...


while the computer is off use compress air and spray it into the ventilation area where the fan is that stopped working. hopefully this will free the dust to hopefully get the fan to start moving again.
If the compressed air does not work, you will have to replace the fan.

Acer Aspire 4315, making noise near fan


You would need to open it, has the laptop been dropped? This is the only way I know that could cause this problem. I suggest you fix this problem because it will cause overheating of you chips, that will eventually cause failure. Opening a laptop is not for novice, unless you trust yourself you can do it, have it done in a shop that fixes laptops. Some electronic shop can do this for you at a resonable price.

It could be overheating, either you need to replace the fan, or at least open it up and remove any dust (bunnies) that may have built up inside, if your fan is gummed up it won't spin which then causes computer to overheat.

Upgrading my laptop's processor from celeron 540 to 560


Hi there,
Fan cooler for Celeron is usually the same for 540 and 560 Ghz, there should be no need to replace cooling system if you pass from 540 and 560
Whenever you operates on CPU and cooling system you need to monitor CPU temperature using Bios or a dedicated software. Here is a good software to check CPU temperature and Fan activity: SpeedFan Download.
Regarding the RAM, some seller like this one (UK seller).sells Trascends 2 GB modules, seller says they work on 4315, you can eventually ask them if there is any issue with bios version and if you need to upgrade bios.
Remember, CPU upgrade on a laptop is not a simple operation, be careful if you do it yourself, as it is easy to damage the laptop when taking it apart. Regarding RAM, main risk is incompatibility, If you live in UK the seller above guarantee compatibility with Acer 4315, double check by sending them an email before buying.
