Question about Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop

1 Answer

System running problem

I could start the computer. After a few hours or minutes, it stops running. I have the screen on but everything looks like sleeping. If I move the CPU, there is a chance to "wake up " the computer.
I left my computer for a few weeks with this problem. But now, it can even not boot anymore. Is it a problem with the cable outside or inside?

Most likely your power cord is loose by the sound of it. If not, your power supply may be shorting out.

Compressor won't stay on...

My guess is that you have a problem with one of the following:

Start relay...this gives a quick shot to the compressor to start the cycle...if it doesn't shut it will go to overload. The capacitor in the start circuit which assists the start relay or the compressor itself. Best bet: get a service guy in.
