If your laptop won't boot up again until it has cooled down, then the problem is a faulty fan and or dust clogging the fan and heatsink fins. The CPU overheats and shuts down (thermal overload) and if this problem is not then eventually the CPU will fail.
Check the fan and if it does not spin freely then it needs replacing.
If the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust, then remove the dust.

When i start up the laptop. the screen flashes continouosly for a good 5 minutes


Does it boot up? Are you able to use it after 5 minutes? What does the flashing look like? Is it flashing the boot up posting processes?

Have you tried booting up in Safe Mode and see if it flashes for 5 minutes?

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

Acer 5515 on external monitor


Get an VGA cable and connect your external monitor to your laptop via a VGA port that is usually used for digital projectors. In this VGA port, you can initiate dual monitors.

Then look at your keyboard and look an icon in your function keys (F1 to F12) that looks like a pair of an LCD and a TV like this {LCD icon/ TV icon}. In most laptop keyboards, this is located in F4.

When found, and with the external monitor hooked to the laptop via VGA port using a VGA cable, press and hold down the FN key and press the function key where the icons described above is located. Example, FN + F4 to toggle a single and a dual monitor.

Give it a try.

Tried the solution...Satellite A85 desktop with no iocons or task


freetek suggested booting to Safe Mode and using Restore function; did a restore to earlier than when problem started, and it worked! However, the nesxt day when I started the laptop again, it returned to the Desktop with no icons or taskbar, causing me to have to remove battery to shut down system. Tried a second Restore to a same checkpoint...would not allow me to re-use that previously used checkpoint, so went one week further back. Did not work and all laptop will do is boot top Desktop with no icons or taskbar and I have to remove the battery to turn it off.

Acer laptop fan stops working after 5 seconds


Check the Bios and see if the Fan is set to a certain temp or on all the time. there's a chance if it's set at a certain temp that the temp tracker (thermometer) may be borked and not reading properly. Remember, turning the fan on all the time will use up energy so your laptop will not last as long on batery life.

Laptop will not boot after vrus warning.


try booting into safe mode? on a pc hit F8 repeatedly while you boot until you get a boot screen with the safe mode option. Some laptops have differant keys, eg F2, <Del>, F10, but ussualy they state this when it boots up.

when you get into safe mode, go to your run prompt and type "msconfig" hit enter. got to startup, disable all.Go to services, disable all. reboot. if this works, try running an pdated antivirus scan. I recommend using Avast! which is like AVG. It can do a start up scan. also try running something like 'trojan remover' which is free to download.

Good luck! :)

I have a Vicks Thermometer, the comfort flex one, and it is not working properly. Everytime I turn it on there is a small triagle on the left side... I dont have the manual, so I dont know what that means.


Your battery is too low to allow it to operate properly, according to the manual. You can use a coin to remove the battery cover in the back to see what type of battery is needed to replace. Most drug stores like walgreens, etc, carry the watch type battery.
