Question about Acer TravelMate 290 Notebook
When I turn the computer on, starts and works fine for some minutes, After that, it shuts down and tries to reboot, in an endless cycle, not loading windows xp. If I shut it down manually, it will restart after some hours, but shall repeat the same routine.
This sounds like a heat related issue.
Are you sure that the CPU fan is running and that the vent ducts are all clear?
You maye be able to get it cleaned out with a can of compressed air.
Is the computer new? If so, then it is probably not dust, but if it is more than a couple of years old, then that is probably the problem.
