Question about Acer Computers & Internet

My computer sounds like it will 'blow up' frequently now. It sounds like a fan in my 'tower' is racing then slowing (Acer). Any idea? Thank you so much.

Sounds like your pc is overheating due to dirt, clogged up fans.
I clean mine every couple of months.
Make sure you ground yourself on the case of your pc before you touch anything inside your pc
Open your case and using a small brush clean the fans ( case fans/ graphics cards fans/ CPU fan)
Or you can use an air duster ( a can of compressed air )

I use both, and i use my vaccume cleaner when i use the brush, but dont do this if you are not happy about it.

If you google cleaning my pc there is lots of help

Should an ACER 5900 veriton, processor cooling fan, vary in speed ?


Yes all computer fans will vary their speed in order to conserve power. They will speed up when the processor is being used as it generates more heat and needs to be cooled more but if the tower is inactive the fan will slow as it does not need as much cooling.

Normally, when the fan gets loud and races, it means that the CPU is getting too hot. The normal fault is that the case and ventilation block on the CPU is full of dust.

Disconnect the tower and take it outside or somewhere where a bit of a mess isn't a problem. Open the tower and look inside. Is it full of dust?

Using a dry soft bristle paint brush, CAREFULLY liberate any dust and fluff, if you have a hoover, brush to the hoover to remove dust.

The CPU is under a big metal blob with a fan on the top, Underneath the fan there are a load of ventilation duct in a metal block. See if you can clean them out, compressed air in a can is a good way. In conjunction with the brush.

Check all the vents and fans are clear of dust, including the PSU.

Once done, try it again, does it still race / lockup / close down.

If so, then you may need to renew the heat dispersal grease which is placed between the CPU and the Heat sink (Vented metal block under the fan).

The best place to find how to do that is look on Youtube for CPU changing / fitting / upgrading.

Fan races slows down races again


the fan is supposed to speed up when the processor gets too hot, then slow down after it has cooled a bit. if it is running more than normal, maybe you should take the cover off the pc and clean the dust out of the cpu heatsink.

Loud racing noise from the tower e 3052


Open up the side of the tower and you will be able to see the fans. You most likely have dust/hair in one of your fans or one of the fans is going bad. You can clean it out with a low pressure air nozzle or dust can.

My tower will not turn on


It sounds as if your power supply is having issues, I would recommend replacing it.  If your good with computers, you can test the power supply: 1. Open the computer tower. 2. Find the main plug which runs from the power supply to the motherboard. 3. There should be 16 wires. 4. Find the green wire, short it to the black wire with a paper clip. 5. If the computer seems to turn on, its your motherboard having issues and you will probably need a new computer.  If it does not turn on, your power supply has failed, and you need to replace it.
I hope this helps!

When computer is turned on screen stays black and fan races fast


If you put it in another T23, Windows will recognize the hardware change and ask you to re-activate Windows. Microsoft may or may not require you to pay for Windows again.

hi first of all check that nothing is touching the blades then spry some oil in the hinge (WD40..) make sure both ways of the fan are open for good air flow if the SUDDEN accelerations annoys you then connect it soo it will run all the time - take the red and black wires to the red and black wires of the 5v hardiscs good luck
