Question about Acer-Veriton-M410-US3800P AMD Desktop PC - AMD Sempron 2.2GHz, 1GB DDR2, 160GB SATAII, DVDRW, Gigabi

1 Answer

I have an Acer Veriton m410 amd sempron machine. I am been having problems with it just turning off while in the middle of watching videos online, playing games on sites such as or facebook. It also turns off while listening to music thru my zune software. It is not restarting just straight up going off. No bluescreen of death either. I have replaced the power supply and that didn't fix it. I was going to replace the cpu fan but I don't know what type of socket it uses and my other option is buying a new video card. Any suggestions as the the socket or any other reason it could be doing this?.

    I tried the memory test and it gets to about 50% complete and then my computer turns off. I ran Speedfan and I went to facebook to play the game that shuts my computer down and noticed my pc got up to 93 or 94 degrees and then turned off. So would it be a fan issue? If so, what type of socket does this thing have so I can buy a new cpu fan?

    UPDATE: I guess I should have tried the simplest thing first. I bought a can of air, blew out the CPU fan and heat sink and it is working just fine and dandy.

Sounds like it could be bad RAM. Do a Memory test with something like this:

But if you think it is heat related you can use SpeedFan ( to check your PC's temp.

    If you remove your CPU fan and heat sink you should be able to see the model number of your CPU. If you do a google search for that CPU model number you will find the socket size you are looking for. But I still think that your problem is bad RAM, 93 is not very hot in terms of CPU temps. Most of my computer run over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
