CPU shutting down.

Ok, so my CPU has been shutting down randomly... more often lately. I think it might be overheating. I used to be able to hear the fan running but i can't hear it any more. Is that the case? How hard is it to switch the fan out?

    Hi,



    May I have the model name of the motherboard of your computer? The motherboard manual will contain the instructions to replace the CPU fan and it is an easy procedure. When we purchase the CPU fan, it shoudl match the socket type of the motherboard.



    Thank you and regards

Hi MonaMona,
Replacing a CPU fan is easy, but be carefull, the CPU will have old thermal grease on it, so unlatch the CPU at the same time you take the fan off. Because the CPU will come up with the fan, so unlatch the CPU pins, to release the CPU pins, when taking the fan off. And when putting the new fan on the CPU, & the fan nust be smaller then 80mm, the sell just CPU fans. Make sure you put on thermal grease on the CPU, so it won't over heat & will protect your CPU, also don't cake on the grease. Put on a small amout & spread it on the CPU thin. Let me know if that does it for you.

Good Luck with it.

Computer Randomly Shuts off


If it only seems to be shutting down when connected to a 2nd screen, it's your GFX card that's overheating.

Normally, you'd hear a beep or two before it dies, but that would only be if you have the pc speaker connected to your motherboard, and also only if the card manages to send the error to the motherboard before it shuts down.

I'd suggest trying to cool down the inside of your case a bit more - add an extra fan or two to get the warm air out. If the card you have is nVidia there is a gadget that tells you the temperature of your card - you can find it on Microsoft's Win 7 gadgets page. I'm not sure if there's a similar gadget for Radeons.

If the card is overheating, that gadget will show the operating temp, and give you an idea of what you may need to do (and it's free)

I changed my cpu fan out, when i started it up it ran 30sec and shut down. So i replaced new mother board without fan., it still shuts down after a few sec. I disconected the 4 pin power source and it will...


From your problem description it sounds like the CPU was overheated (and failed) before you replaced the CPU fan - so the fan replacement was too late. Since the procesor already failed, installing a new motherboard without a fan did not accomplish anything.

The 4 pin power plug provides +12 volts DC to the processor. When you disconnected it, the processor essentially could not run at all and the system is no longer capable of detecting the CPU failure and shutting down the power supply.

You need to install a known good CPU which is the right type and speed for your computer. Unless you are experienced in replacing,CPU's, fans, heat-sinks and applying thermal grease I recommend that you have a PC technician perform these tasks.

Emachines ET1810 desktop computer randomly powers down for seemingly no reason. Doesn't crash or freeze, just turns off, as if the plug was pulled. Started about 5-6 months after buying.


It could be overheating, and automatically shutting itself down, to avoid any damage.

Did you get the standard 12 month warranty when you purchased the computer? Did you purchase "extended" warranty? If so, contact Emachines, and get them to trouble-shoot and fix it.

Bios reports "shut down due to overheating". Will then randomly shut down (hard). After each start-up will shutdown anywhere between 10-200 seconds. Can MB or chip be saved? Reset thermal trip (ie....


I had this problem crop up. Dust was the culprit, the CPU heat sink was a giant dust bunny. I removed the fan (held by 2 clips), removed the four screws holding the heat sink and pulled that. Then used a small shopvac to thoroughly clean everything out then reassembled. Works fine now.

The computer will just randomly do a windows shutdown and then restart. Cleaned, changed the power supply and still does it.


Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart person keeps turning the computer back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the unit is probably doomed. Once a unit shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot. The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated unit is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down. Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning. Check the CPU fan if it is spinning and also the CPU itself put thermal paste. So that the heat from CPU will absorbed by the heat sink.

D400a reboots/restarts randomly


It it would seem to be overheating, so it could be the CPU fan that is faulty, or the CPU Thermostat. In either case it would need a visual inspection to be 100% certain.

Read disk error occured during rebooting


The acer recovery software sometimes has it's glitches. The CD might be fine, its just the data that wa written to the disk @ time of recovery creation was corrupt at some point.

If your machine shuts down randomly there can be only 3 possible solutions to this one:
  1. Your battery from your laptop has an issue. Try letting the laptop run on AC power ONLY.
  2. Your CPU is overheating, caused by a broken or unresponsive CPU heat sink fan, which causes your pc to shutdown (will always auto- shutdown at a certain temperature to prevent damage to the CPU. Check if you can feel "air" coming out of your laptop, suppose to be a hatched outlet at the side or at the back or on the top cover.
  3. You have a Virus that is shutting down the pc when it wants to. NO Operating system issue can cause your PC to shutdowb; only a virus can do that.
Summary, check your battery, check if your CPU fan is running, and make a virus scan (if the pc doesnt shut down). Remember to make a backup of your DATA, cause Acer (i dont think they will) don't do backups. Waranty on Acers is usually 3 years, depending on the country. So they should replace and repair, everything.
