I have and ACER aspire 5738G (1yr old now), everytime im playing games, the left portion, exactly below the power button is getting very hot after 30 mins, then my laptop will shutdown.


Games will cause more heat as they put your components under more stress. Make sure that you are not blocking any of the vents and also, check them for dust. Give them a vacuum if they are dusty. It sounds like there is not enough ventilation, which causes your computer to overheat and then to shut down.

My acer aspire 5738g keeps shutting down when i'm


Sorry you are having troule. It sounds as if it is getting hot and protecting itself. Games are very cpu intensive and this causes heat. The cheap fix is an under cooler. This is a cooler the laptop sits on. I have seen them at Best Buy for under $20

Graphics card upgrade on Acer Extensa 5230E-901G16Mn laptop


Unfortunately, laptops are generally locked down in terms of graphics cards. The GPU is integrated into the laptop mainboard due to space constraints.

Your only option if tied down to a laptop for any reason would be to purchase a more recent laptop with a specific graphics card in it.

Any discrete (NVIDIA or ATI) graphics card that was manufactured after 2008 should be sufficient to run most games.

If you're looking to play games on more intense graphic settings, your best bet would be to look for laptops with the NVIDIA GeForce 9600M/240M or better, or the ATI Mobility Radeon 4600/5400 or better. Either brand with at least 512 MB of video RAM will work well.

My Aspire doesn't works


I'm assuming you bought this new. Take it back & exchange it or contact acer for warranty repair.

My acer 5738G shuts down abruptly when i start playing games. its not even a month now tht i have bought this laptop. what is the problem?


Hi again.
The Graphic adapter is nVidia GeForce G105M, the dedicated video memory is 512 MB.
The games you are playing require 512 MB minimum!!!
This means the the graphics card cannot handle the games you are playing because they are really made for a desktop PC.
The only way around this is to lower the resolution of the game so its not using the high end settings.
It won't look as good but at least you will be able to play them.
If you are a gamer i recommend you think about a gamers desktop computer as they are built for that.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Acer aspire 5600 shut down


it sounds like the video card cannot support or handle the pressure put on it by the game you are trying to play, if it is an OEM game have a look for the minium system requirements that the game will run on, you can also find this information on line, you will probably find out that the graphics card doesn't support the game, do this check with all games you try to play
another thing is to upgrade your memory because some laptops don't have a devoted graphics card thus they are relient on the system memory

good luck

Playing Call of duty 4 on vista


could try to add ram. laptops rarely have good video cards for gaming, and its prolly using system ram instead of dedicated video ram. If its using system ram, the reaction time will always be slower than if it had a suficient amount of dedicated video ram.

Hi
This is a hardware problem and sorry you won't be able to play the with your current video card configuration .
This problem relates to the vertex shader/pixel shader aspect of the graphic cards.
