    ok....do you think its worth changing the fan before i reinstall the operating system.
    as soon as i turn on the heat sinkk starts to get hot.
    the battery for the motherboard was alsoo completely dead, soo i replaced that today but no joy!
    i take it that the backup disks i created when i first brought the computer are what your talking about??

The CPU fan should turn on when the PC is powered on, and then it usually slows down until the workload on the processor causes it to heat up, then the fan spins faster, it might also be a power supply issue, but if your able to boot and its giving you messages and not shutting down then you should re-install the operating system.

Acer aspire 5630 doesn;t start. problem with the monitor and the fan any solutions


If the fan is not working, your computer will not start sometime. Try cleaning the fan with hand held vacuum cleaner. and restart the computer. Before you clean the fan, remove the batteries and power cable from the computer.

I reset my surge protector and the computer wont power up. i think i need a new power supply. the power cord is working fine. Please let me know where i can find a power supply for the aspire...


The Acer Aspire L100 is a desktop computer powered by a special DC adapter and power cable. The computer's motherboard incorporates a fuse designed to prevent any power surges from damaging the computer. If the fuse burns out due to a power surge or for any other reason, the computer will no longer function. You can check the motherboard fuse for damage yourself, then take it to a trained technician for replacement if needed

Shut down the Acer Aspire L100 and turn the tower around.

Press the "On/Off" button on the front of the tower. If the computer will not boot and the fan does not turn on, the fuse may be burned out.

Unplug the power cord from the rear of the tower

Turn the tower on its side and remove the Phillips-head screws connecting the back panel to the Aspire L100's cabinet.

Pull out the motherboard assembly gently from the back of the cabinet. The internal fuse is located on the motherboard behind the DC power jack, which is to the right of the monitor jack

Let me know if this helped..

    The acer l100 does not power on at all no lights or fan running


    If the computer is not starting then and the power supply is ok then you need to try a different charger. If the problem still exist this may a sign that the motherboard is dead and need to be replace, because when a motherboard is dead it the computer will not receive any power.
    Thank you

    After the electricity fail, my Acer Aspire L100 will not start, What could happen?


    2 things could have happened, a brown out and a surge a surge (usually what we fear the most about) will spike send electricity up to the computer destroying it, there is also a brown out, a brown out is when the electricity suddenly drops with out a single warning or notice, this can damage your computer very badly call acer, they should be able to fix it idk if its free or not but it does not hurt to ask.

    I am running Wxp on my Acer L100. After about 15


    first things first pls check if the cpu fan is seated properly.
    if not pls try to reseat the cpu fan, but before doing it put thermal paste on top of the cpu to haver a better contact on the cpu

    if the fan is seated properly check the rpm of the fan on bios mode see if the rpm of the fan is fast enough.. if not then there's the problem.


    this things only happens if the cooling system of your processor is malfunctioning. Your built in hardware monitor tends to turn of the computer to prevent further damage,,

    Sounds like your hard drive might be bad, its also possible that your cables are loose, follow the cable from your hard drive to your motherboard and make sure they are plugged in securly. If they are and your still haveing the same message then its possible that your hard drive is bad or at the very least that somehow the operating system has become corrupted. If you have the software that came with the computer, then you will need to reinstall the operating system.

    Power but no display acer aspire L100


    Try these sequence(you need another one good computer to test and interchange component and you will find out the problem):
    - check your RAM, if you use two RAM start computer using one and interchange it to find out which one is bad
    - if your RAM OK, check your VGA
    - if your RAM and VGA OK, try to check your power supply, sometimes defective PS cannot supply sufficient power to all component to work.

    hope this will help you.
