Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook

2 Answers

Aspire 3610 fails to run for more than a few minutes

It is slow to start up. When it eventually gets to the welcome screen, it shuts down almost immediately most of the time. In a few attempts it seemed to be in regular operating mode, but suddenly shut down within 5 minutes of start-up. It stays running longer if it has been off for an hour or so, but for a maximum of about 5 minutes once XP has loaded. When in setup mode, it will stay on for hours.

Hi Jimbo60,
I recommend you to test step-by-step
1.First test that problem is from heat or fan problem by turning your NB on and maybe press key to enter BIOS setup or do something not to boot into windows and see that it can stay there forever or not ??
** incase it can stay on for half an hour to one our and shut itself down then you have problem with fan or heat flow.

2.incase you didn't have problem with heat then, it can be harddisk problem what I recommend to find some harddisk to test for that case or try to find some utility program that can boot up and test your harddrive.
Goodluck,takecare.

My computer powers off on its own


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a can of compressed air to do this.

My acer aspire 5535, amd turion x2battery runs out faster than it used to


The battery starts a slow decline over months and years, eventually you will notice the time between charges gets less and less until you are down to minutes, this quite normal for these batteries. The average life span is one to three years for most batteries before replacement is required.

Why aspire 3610 is very slow ?there is no virus!


Try removing programmes you no longer use and running Speed Disk/Defrag.
What happens is the system gets clogged with un needed garbage. A good spring clean may help.
Hope that fixes your problem.

The laptop gets hot and runs slow


Two possible solutions to your problem are:

Buy a cooling pad to elevate and flow air around/through your laptop's base.

Use the laptop on a hard, flat surface, and elevate it slightly if possible.

Very slow laptop


could be a Ram problem or perhaps a virus . Try booting off a cd or floppy that you can create from http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

But you'll need access to another computer for that

Crash!!


Could be Heat, sounds like the system is shutting down to protect the processor. Let it sit shut down over night and see if it runs longer when it's cooled down. Is the fan running?
