Got an ACER 7530G with a thermal isue. After some time it shuts immediately down. Seems to be a thermal processor problem. Fan is running, no dust inside. Processor temperature is between 52deg. C and 66...


If the fans are spinning then you need to take off the heatsink and ensure that there is paste between the heatsink and the CPU (its a golden or silver color normally). If not, go buy thermal paste.
If there is paste, then the heatsink was not placed properly on top of the CPU. Even if 3 corners are properly inserted and only one is not properly done, this can certainly cause overheating.

Way to slow down the z5610 acer fan? it runs loud after 2 years.


http://computershopper.com/desktops/reviews/acer-aspire-z5610

A) Needs to be opened up. Needs to be cleaned out inside.

Two years? Bet it looks 'scary dirty' inside. After you have cleaned out the inside, donate the 'Gunk' to local mice. They can use it for a condo. (I would charge them rent)

B) Processor may need old Thermal Paste replaced. Clean top of Processor, and bottom of finned Heatsink, and PROPERLY apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

Primer:
Air is used to cool the inside of that All-In-One desktop computer. The Processor and graphics chipset, are the two hardware components that give off the most heat.

The finned Heatsink, and Processor Fan, are the two cooling components for the Processor. When they get clogged with 'Gunk' over the years, the cooling capacity drops -> tremendously.

The Processor fan sensor, senses that the Processor is too hot, and speeds the Processor fan up. Also BIOS speeds the computer case fan/s up.

Could also be that the bearings for the fan/s are bad. Replacement fan, or fans are needed.

ONE THING HOWEVER Karl, to work on this All-In-One you need to wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip connected to a good ground source.
This is just like working on a LAPTOP computer, NOT a desktop.

Average example,

(And of course unplugged from power)

Need guidance in cleaning, and replacing the Thermal Paste, just post back in a Comment. I will guide you.

My acer all in one desktop computer's fan isn't working. So my comp heats up. How can I fix the fan?


You need to replace the fan as soon as possible. Your computer might be in trouble running without fan. Just a clarification, what fan are you talking about? Is it the fan from the heatsink? rear or the front fan? But anyway, you can buy cheaper fan from any computer store.

Hi there,
Lots of local places can provide a decent price and even install this for you, however based on the model number provided I was able to find this:

SYSTEM TRIES TO COME ON BUT ONLY MAKES IT TO THE CONFIGURING SCREEN THEN IT SHUTS ITSELF BACK DOWN, THIS IS CONTINUOUS. I have a Dell Inspiron 531. Please advise. Thank you, Candace


It sounds like it could be a problem with overheating, which is causing the machine to turn itself off. Try opening the side cover, and carefully cleaning the motherboard and especially the CPU fan - which is the large fan probably on top of a silver box with loads of fins on it. Carefully remove the dust, and see if this clears up the problem. It may be worth removing and refitting the memory whilst the computer is open, to reduce the problems of bad connections between the cards.

If it doesn't fix it, then reply here with any error messages that pop up on the screen.
