First test your CPU then tast all leads that are attached to your hard drive sounds like a faulty lead of some sorts then
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
good luck

Gaming (and graphics application) consumes more CPU/ Processor resources and due to the heavy processing the PC (CPU & GPU) heatup. Excessive heatup beyond usual is alarming and PC shuts down by itself when the processor/ GPU temperature exceeds the safe temperature limit. There are mainly two reasons for heatup.
Laptop heating issue generally occurs due to fan failure, which may damage the system, if not checked properly. Another most likely cause of overheating is the dust present inside the laptop, which clogs the fan and heatsink.
1. Make sure the fan is running. (if not it needs replacement)
2. Clean the fan and heat sink (thermal module). Click here for GENERAL Acer Laptop disassembly instructions and refer to
Removing the System Fan/Thermal Module after removing the outer cover. Take out the fan and heat sink. clean them with the help of tooth brush and put it back. Also, repair manual can be searched online or downloaded for referrence.
The procedure is very simple, but if you are not comfortable with working inside electronics, I suggest that you should get you laptop checked by a professional for servicing (if required). I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it Helps! Let me know if i could be of any further assistance.

I hear big sound from my processor of my colling fan, it happen when i start my computer


Hi,

I understand that the cooling fan on the top of the processor is making a noise when you boot up the computer.

I would suggest that you immediately get a new one installed.

This is a mechanical fault and fans will last their lifetime and require a replacement then.

In case you continue using it, then the processor might get damaged.
So, I suggest that you get the cooling fan replaced at the earliest to avoid any damage to the processor.

If this doesn't work for you or in case you need any further assistance, please comment and let me know, and I will be happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
Thank you.

I have a desktop PC, Gateway 5472. I am running Windows Vista, and a variety of productivity suites. It has a 500 GB hard drive, and 4 MB of RAM. My computer has an unusual problem...one which has...


Hi, Well looks to me a problem with either your Fan (or cooling system) or RAM (memory). If your machine shuts down itself (without restarting) most probably the Processor cooling procedure has failed. Without a warning the System will shut down immediately to avoid any damage to the Processor.
  • Have you experienced a 100% CPU usage? You can check it using your Task Manager.
  • Have you checked your System Temperature? If your System has a built-in Temperature monitor use it. Or you can check it using the BIOS. It has a location which displays System Parameters. Monitor the temperature. That has to be the problem.
  • Check your fan. If it has been damaged it will not be able to function as expected.
  • Make sure your power supply is able to provide enough power to the CPU Fan and other devices.
  • Make sure you fan has no loose connections.
  • Make sure that its clean.
  • If you have problems visible with your fan, please replace it.

  • Make sure that your Processor has no loose connections. Its must be installed to the slot or socket properly. The heat sink must be installed properly.
  • Make sure your power supply has no internal leakage or extensive heat.

  • If your machine Restarts without shutting down:
  • Most probably an Issue with your RAM or Hard Disk (or an Operating System Problem has been detected).
  • If it launches Windows Repair Process it might be a problem with one of these devices and / or the OS as well rather than CPU.

  • You can use the Event Viewer to check for System Related errors. What you have to do is type Run in the search box in the Start Menu, hit enter then.
  • In the Run box, Eventvwr.msc and hit enter.
  • Go to System category and check for Errors. (Red X mark represents errors).
  • Read the description and try to check whether an error is logged. If so please post it here for further assistance.
  • You may need some hardware knowledge to perform these tasks (except the Event Viewer and BIOS check). If you do not have any experience please take the machine to a tech.
Feel free to contact again. Comment here.
Please be kind enough to rate the answer as well!
Thanks for using Fixya! Have a good day!

Cease using it immediately and get it serviced. There are failure modes of this that can do serious damage that requires a lot of work to repair.

If the temp sensors shut it down, it will restore if cooled off... If that doesn't happen service is required.

If just one side of the speakers went out I know exactly what has happened as I have repaired three of these all with same problem. If both sides are down and the rest seems to work, that is an uncommon failure

The cooling fan is throttled as needed and runs only when heat sinks get to a certain temp.

Red lights


hello,
the red light is infact a general hardware failure message. In this particular case, his hardware failure is with the blu-ray drive, that's why the system does not shut down until the drive is accessed. Your thoughts on overheating are close the system will shut down the same way, however it will shutdown while on the dash as well, and regardless of in game or dashboard, if the system is overheating, it will tell you so in the top right hand corner. It will say the system has overheated and is shutting down to avoid further damage.
this is not a theory either, pull your fan power than run your system for a few minutes, you will see what i mean.
Hope this will help...
