Shut down by itself

My 2yrs old Acer aspire 3000 doesn't keep working continuesely as usual. It shuts down by itself every 30-45'. What's problem? How to fix it? Should I add more memory to it? or should I rather have an external hard drive? Please give me an advice.
thanks.

    The same problem on my Acer Aspire 3000. For the time being, I think it is because of high temperature because when I start it cold it takes a longer time before it shuts down than if I start it after being used. I couldn't find the "temperature" and "temperature before shutdown" in BIOS though, isn't it standard to have that?

    Your Sincerely, Everdale.

Not sure I understand the question. Do you mean the level goes down, by itself, whilst playing or it changes to the default when you power off and back on again?

My acer aspire 3000 star up only half way and torn off in seconds ?


turn on your laptops, press F2, and wait for a while. if your laptop doesn't shut down, it means you just have a software problem, try to check the boot order. make sure you put your hard drive as your first boot order and save. if it still shut down even after inside the bios setup, it means your laptops have a hardware malfunction. probably overheat, exhaust covered by dust, the cooling fan is not working, or other hardware malfunction.

My acer aspire 5738g keeps shutting down when i'm


Sorry you are having troule. It sounds as if it is getting hot and protecting itself. Games are very cpu intensive and this causes heat. The cheap fix is an under cooler. This is a cooler the laptop sits on. I have seen them at Best Buy for under $20

ACER ASPIRE 3000 gets power off after some time automatically


If the laptop shuts down by itself and deosn't boot up again after some time, then the problem could be an over heating problem. The CPU shuts down when it overheats (thermal shutdown) and it is usually caused by a faulty fan and or the fan and heat-sink is clogged with dust.
Check the fan and if it does not spin freely then replace the fan and or remove the dust from the fan and heat-sink assembly.

My Acer Aspire 3000, Keybourd Stopped Working


i had the same problem. the battery does something during startup and the only way i found to fix it was to turn it on without a battery while its plugged into the adapter, or leave it in standby instead of shutting down... i dont know if theres a better way, but thats what i do.

Acer 5002 laptop shutoff randomly


Try to cool the laptop in the sense, do not use it for some time, approx two three hrs then try to re install...
But if your laptop is old then the problem could be because the fans working beneath get old and do not run upto the mark..usually they have two fans i believe...maybe one is conked?

Hope this helps

Big problems


start the system hit delete or F2 to enter setup load system defaults then exit saving changes.

if it didnt work

get to the mainboard
there is a jumper near the cmos battery usually shows the
word (jbat) near it , try to change its position for some
seconds while power is off , this way will clear cmos and set the
mainboard bios to default settings.
start the system hit delete or F2 to enter setup then exit saving changes.

Acer apire 3000 keeps freezing!


The first, best thing to do is to back up your data and do a system restore. Acer's have the restore function usually built into their acer system management software.

Restoring the computer will solve most issues. If you keep having issues after the restore you probably have a hardware error like a bad hard drive or bad memory.

Be sure to back up any important data as the restore will erase everything from the hard drive and set it back to the way it came from the factory

Good luck!
