Overheating and shutting down

My Acer Aspire 5610-2328 notebook has been over-heating and shutting down since I purchased it around 15 mos ago. I sent it in to their repair center once and they turned it on and left it in the back room without any kind of load on it and told me that they couldn't find anything wrong with it.

It has continued shutting down and now it says that my Windows Live OneCare that I purchased some months ago has quit working. It is freezing up and most of my programs are not responding on a regular basis. One of the biggest problems is that the date is stuck at June, 2005 and it won't let me change the date and time.

Re-load it. OR Take it apart and clean it. Dust is clogging the heatsink by the processor. AMD OR PENTIUM?

My acer all in one z5600 runs for awhile and then shuts down very annoying!!!


Start by cleaning the fan or fans, heatsink, and vents, you may have to open the computer. When you open, you may as well replace the Thermal Paste on the CPU and Graphics Chips. Overheating will cause shut downs, heat sensors set to detect a set temp. will shut down to protect vital components from heat related damage. ALSO, Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Change plan settings, under Plugged In, set both to Never, open Advanced Power settings, go through thr Advanced settings set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust to your preference. It's a good idea to Always shut down your computer when not in use, it will last longer and a reboot everyday will reset the machine. Make sure ALL your Windows and Acer Updates are current.

Aspire z5600 keeps turning off


You could have an overheating issue. most computers get hot after a small period of time and that heat must be dissipated. To do this, the computer uses fans and heat sinks. These need to be cleaned of dust and dirt or they will clog and fail to remove heat from the system, forcing it to power down.

Possible overheating problem for Acer Aspire mini L100


I am not totally sure if this is the problem, but I would suggest that you may have a power supply issue or possibly it going out. If the computer runs fine, and then shuts down, than this can be more symptomatic to a overheating issue.

In my limited experience with overheat issues, the computer actually smelled like it was getting hot, and then it would slow down and then sometimes stop. Most computers have fail safe settings where they either alarm, or shut down or both when they overheat.

Hi i have a acer aspire 5044 and it keeps shutting it self down after 10 - 15 mins of use


This sounds like an overheating issue. You need to open the case and check for dust and clean it out. If dust is not the issue then the heatsink compound will need to be changed, this will involve removing the proccessor heatsink and fan, removing the old compound and applying new.
If you are familiar with the BIOS you can check your processor heat readings just prior to the shut down if you can.

Computer keeps shutting off


the fans must work for the processor not to overheat..

thats why it crashes.. processors or certain hardwares need a certain temperature for it to run.

try repairing the fan it will help. and also clean dust on your board it insulates and increases heat inside causing your pc not to last long

Computer shuts down for no discernable reason


Im not a expert but my opinion would be to just buy a new power supply. Installation is easy. Thats one thing that gets replaced most often out of all pc parts. I would wait for a expert opinon though, good luck

An Interesting Problem


It sounds like the CPU is overheating. When the system boots up, can you hit the DEL, ESC, or F12 key to get it into BIOS mode? Often, there will be a setting in there to monitor the processor temperature. If you can get it into that screen, leave the computer in that mode and keep checking the temp. Make sure the machine itself has good air circulation and isn't in a hot spot in your house (for example, where sunlight hits the main box) If it continues to flounder, you'll probably need to upgrade the CPU fan or install a heat exchanger fan...
