make sure processor fan is working fine. you may hear the sound of fan on the left side of the laptop. and make sure its not getting heat soon. If the fan is not working you need to replace the fan. If if gets heat soon that means you have to put processor cooling paste.IF the fan is working fine and the processor heat is normal, then you need to re-fix the RAM. Then it will work fine..ok

Reset my acer travel mate 520it

Am not sure about a reset.. However, you can try the system restore option. This will bring back your system to a earlier date configuration.

Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> System tools --> system restore is where you will find this.

Please read whats in there before restoring .. You might lose recently installed software / data
