Have you blown out the cooling vents and fan? Do this first. That will take care of the hardware end. Now, what OS are you running. If it is XP, left click in the tool bar and pull up your taks manager. You can see what is hogging your cpu if that is the problem and fix accordingly. Hope this helps.

My acer aspire 5738g shutdown while i plaay agame


You either overloaded the processor or the available RAM. Also with these laptops and high end games...it is very easy to overheat them unless they are on a cooling pad with another external fan blowing cool air over them, without it they will shut down due to thermal overload....this is to keep them from melting something. Try checking with the support driver page for your laptop and see if there is a BIOS update that addresses the algorithym for fan speed, then pull the heat sink from the processor, clean everything up and apply a good thermal paste compound, then blow out all the airvents and make sure there are no restrictions.

Unable to logon


I've faced this issue before, after lot of research i found that OS Reinstall is your only way out (Repair can work sometimes). Alternative is, if you have other user accounts - you can login and create a new account to use (success rate : low)

Acer aspire 5600 shut down


the only way you can upgrade the graphics on a laptop is to purchase a graphics accelerator card that plugs in to the usb slot, its not an upgrade as such but it will allow you to play high res games on the laptop, there would have to be a memory upgrade to go with that also

Nvidia are doing some good laptop accelerators at the moment but they are expensive!!!

kind regards

Acer 5050 crash problem.


It is highly unlikely its a crash......two operating systems cannot....CANNOT crash similtaneously. Its impossible! unless the hard drive you run both on is faulty BUT you wouldnt get Windows to load. Not even for a bit....you say all lights will stay if they were lit up but they some how dont stay on.........I think thats what you mean.........then you say you checked again and there were rectangles that look like a book that stopped blinking yet the power lite stayed on....Im at a lost But I dont think its a crash......only software crash it might be a hardware pronlem....
