Question about Acer TravelMate 2500 Notebook
My travelmate2500 shuts down when im playing video games...I was wondering if theres a way to tell if its the video card or the cpu thats overheating? i looked in bios but couldnt find anything...in addition, Is there anyway to get at the heatsink and cpu? i removed all the screws but still couldnt get it apart...thanks
Had a similar problem. Whenever I played then it would after just freeze and shutdown. Was also getting pretty hot. The solution was real simple:
At the rear left corner of my 7720 is the heat exhaust vent. Right next to it is the power supply socket. The end of the power cable (jack end) had a large plastic casing around it, larger than a AA battery. Because of how the laptop was set up on my desk this casing around the cable lay right against the exhaust vent and stopped the hot air from escaping. All I did was turn the power cable so it faced right instead of left and, hey presto, all was sorted.
