It sounds like your laptop is overheating. Check that all of the air vents are left unblocked and that your fan is spinning and expelling warm/hot air. It is recommended you use your laptop on a hard flat surface to ensure some airflow under the laptop. You could try purchasing a can of compressed air and blowing it into the vents to loosen up any built up of dust and hair.
If you are skilled enough you could open the laptop up to completely clean the fans and heatsink. Whilst it is open you can remove the heatsink, clean the old thermal paste off of the CPU and GPU and apply a very thin, evenly spread layer of fresh thermal paste. Then put the machine back together.
Hope this helps,

You have to probably remove all the screws under the computer. remove the hdd memory and etc. The next part will be to check near the keyboard if there is something to pull out, underneath that there will be more screws to pull out and you will the cmos battery.

Microphone connect have acer aspire travelmate


It appears that your Acer has 3 ports in the front center bottomportion of the laptop. One of them should be for plugging in an external microphone, one should be for external speakers, and one should be an input jack.http://complap.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/acer-travelmate-2420-2.192120139_std.jpg

It could also be the CPU "heat sensor" causing a "thermal" shutdown.
Try a hairdryer on cold blow, and point it in where the CPU cooler is!

see does the laptop stay on longer. Thermal paste dosen't usualy "go" unless the heat sink has be detached from the CPU.

I think as you say either the fan or I think the heat sensor.

Acer Travelmate 2420 PROBLEMS :(


Try to turn off automatic updates. Right-click on MyComputer icon, select properties, Click on Automatic Updates, turn off automatic updates. Maybe it's trying to download updates automatically and this will slow down the computer. If that is the problem, you have to make sure you get all your updates manually first and then change back settings to automatically download updates afterwards. Please let me know if this still doesn't help.
