Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 3690-continuously reboots then checks harddisk several times, every time I start this Laptop

Have tried several software programs that check the registry... and occasionally some probrems are found and cleaned...but this problem still continues. The problem seems to have started after the numerous Windows XP updates loaded, so its real hard determining which one, if at all, was at fault. Have reloaded the operating system several times, but nothing helps.

First remove any new, or unnecessary hardware, extra mouse / keyboard / monitors / dongles / and even the battery.

Try again, and if possible, get into 'safe mode' by pressing F8.

If it is stable in safe mode, you at least can try removing devices under, START / CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE / DEVICE MANAGER. Then whilst disabling various devices, try booting again into normal mode, and obtain a new, AND correct driver for whatever piece of hardware was deemed to be at fault.

About 10 seconds after i turn on my aspire 3690 the fan shuts down. the laptop will run for several minutes and then it shuts down also probibly from overheating. The fan starts each time i start but shuts...


First thing I'd check is for a BIOS update for your computer under the Acer support pages (acer.com). In some cases, thermal control updates are included in newer version of the BIOS, if it is a manufacturing problem.
Goto http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php and download Hardware Monitor, start the computer and immediately run the hardware monitor app to check how high the temperature on the CPU gets before it shuts down.
Continuing use under this condition may damage your Windows installation because of the sudden shutdown.
