Re: aspire 5360

Mine was turning itself off with no warning quiet frequently.

unscrewed the panels on the underside so i could get to the fan, pulled the dust balls out, and it's been right as rain ever since.

was really easy to pull apart and put back together and i didn't even have to expose any circuit boards,so i figr it's a pretty safe bet too.

ob just make sure it's not plugged in and the battery's out.

Re: aspire 5360

The 2 most likely causes are: it is getting too hot, or the power supply is failing. For the first, you can make sure that it is getting good airflow around it, and especially underneath the laptop. Purchasing a Laptop Cooling Pad should help.

If it is a bad power supply, you will need to seek warranty repair, or take it to a laptop repair shop, to get the power supply replaced.

My computer starts then shuts off i havent used it for about 2 years ?

It could be overheating. Do you hear fans running when it's on? If not, the CPU Fan may not be working. Also the Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink may have dried up or is not thick enough to keep the laptop cool, so it shuts down. You will have to take the laptop apart to fix either of the two things mentioned so far.

You might have a virus that is causing you to shut down. Try booting the system in Safe Mode and see if it stays on. Turn the laptop off, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE option. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. Most times the virus can't operate in Safe Mode because it needs the Internet Connection. If it stays on you will need to run your virus scan.

When loading my laptop it's taking at least 20 minutes to start the internet. The laptop is only 2 years old and it has only recently started to do this.

When you eventually get on the internet, download and asc-setup. Run the registry error utility.
That will help.

Battery indicator keeps fluctuating to 4hrs to 6hrs back to 4hrs then 8hrs every 5 mins or so i have acer A0532H with windows 7

first of all let me ask how old is the battery, if it`s new-discharge the battery until pc shuts down itself because of low battery, remove the battery , unplug AC charger from laptop, wait for 5 minutes, then hold power button for 5 full seconds, wait another 5 minutes, then put battery and ac charger on , don`t turn on laptop yet, wait until battery indicator shows that battery fully charged, then remove AC charger, and turn on laptop. P.S. you can try this on old battery too, but usually worthless, because old batteries are not recognizable by system currectly ..

This solution may sound stupid, but it is affective. Try to press really long time (about 1-2 minutes) on the power button of the laptop. wait for it to shut down completely. Then turn it on to see what happens.

What may have caused this is an update of any sort.

Brand New laptop, won't start

Try taking the battery out before you turn it on. Have seen completely a dead dead battery keeping a laptop from starting up. Does the hard drive activity light flickering? If it is you can try holding down the Function button (FN) and there should be another button to hit to switch between LCD\CRT.

Power problem

I think it is not having problem with the software or the windows.
The main problem is you don't give the specification detail , for instance the memory module itself, what memory module do you use, does it have 2 memory module, if it has then it could be .. but if it doesn't do you recently upgrade your laptop? or the ac adapter, or the baterai itself.
