Re: big problems

Start the system hit delete or F2 to enter setup load system defaults then exit saving changes.

if it didnt work

get to the mainboard
there is a jumper near the cmos battery usually shows the
word (jbat) near it , try to change its position for some
seconds while power is off , this way will clear cmos and set the
mainboard bios to default settings.
start the system hit delete or F2 to enter setup then exit saving changes.

Not sure I understand the question. Do you mean the level goes down, by itself, whilst playing or it changes to the default when you power off and back on again?

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.

i had the same problem. the battery does something during startup and the only way i found to fix it was to turn it on without a battery while its plugged into the adapter, or leave it in standby instead of shutting down... i dont know if theres a better way, but thats what i do.

Computer shutting down

  1. Be sure your power supply is working and charging battery
  2. Allow battery to full charge
  3. Be sure PC is cold not hot or warm
  4. check if before shutting down PC fan is starting: if not starting PC thermal protection can be triggered and your fan out of service.
