It is overheating. Make sure the fan on the processor is working. Get a can of compressed air and blow out the inside of your computer to remove dust and dirt which will also cause overheating. If the fans are not working replace them or you could end up replacing your computer.

The fans must work for the processor not to overheat..

thats why it crashes.. processors or certain hardwares need a certain temperature for it to run.

try repairing the fan it will help. and also clean dust on your board it insulates and increases heat inside causing your pc not to last long

I have an acer aspire ax5900. The video card fan vibrates loudly for the first 10 minutes after start up. I am told I need a new video card. Is this correct and where is the best place to get one?


Your Acer Aspire, like any other desktop computer system, contains fans inside the case to help vent the heat generated by the internal components.
These fans generally operate quietly and reliably, working in the background to prevent your computer from overheating.
A fan that sounds excessively loud could indicate a problem such as overheating or loose internal components, or it could simply be a normally loud fan.
The key to differentiating between the two involves looking for additional clues from your computer.
Normal Operation
Due to computer configuration and build quality, the fans in some desktops sound louder than others.
Depending on what other brands of computers you've owned or have had experience with, the fan in the Acer may sound louder, when it's actually functioning perfectly.
The fan will run to keep the inside of the computer from overheating, so periodic runs are normal. If the fan runs for long periods or very often, you may have a deeper problem.
Fan Damage and Overheating
A fan can sound loud due to damage, such as broken blades or to a build-up of dirt that impedes normal operation.
This dirt, as well as normal wear and usage, can wear away the lubricant coating on the fan's internal shaft, causing the blades to make excessive noise as they turn. In many cases, a loud fan indicates that the computer is overheating, causing the fan to run more often than usual to try and cool the system.
Depending on the types of components and upgrades within your Acer computer, your current fan may be too small and weak to handle the heat output, and require upgrading to a larger, more powerful fan.
Troubleshooting
Take note of when the fan turns on and how long it runs to determine any distinct patterns, whether if it occurs only during certain processes or programs.
Your computer's CPU generates a large amount of heat while in operation, so programs that require large amounts of CPU usage may trigger the fan more often.
Watch for additional signs of overheating, such as sudden shutdowns or computer crashes. Check inside the case for signs of other components touching the fan and causing vibration noise.
Solution
Do not overtax the CPU by opening numerous processor-intensive programs at once.
Check that all screws, cards and wires are securely fastened and away from the fan.
Keep your computer clean inside and out, to prevent the build-up of dirt on the fan blades or air vents and minimize the threat of overheating.
Apply a drop of oil to your fan's shaft to give it proper lubrication and smooth, quiet rotation of the blades.

Shuts down after 30 seconds


1st step: take out the ram and clean it with an eraser..... blow air over the ram slots and reinsert... it shall work 80% chance.

if that doesn't help then:

your PC might have a cooling problem.....

1 change the position of your PC... a place with high air moisture and high temperature can cause similar problems.

2 check , if your fan is working properly.

3 check the Processor IC thermal compound... a paste which is applied in between the processor and the fan.

Fan working with big sound, Model-ASPIRE M3802


Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.
Welcome to Fixya, Sajaltunes.

This indicates that your computer's processor (CPU) is getting too hot, the fan spins faster to cool it down.

What you need to do is to remove the side panel from the computer chassis and then use a vaccum cleaner and paint brush to gently remove the dust on the fan and heatsink.

Cleaning the heatsinks and the internals of your computer system will increase airflow through the system, meaning that the fans will spin at a lower RPM. In other words your fans will not have to try and push air through dust.

Take care!

Acer Aspire M5100 shuts down randomly. Sometimes lots of programs running, sometimes none. Fans have always been loud, and they still are. I don't know how to troubleshoot, I am a graphic artist and I need...


Would need more detail but sounds like it is a problem with your processor overheating because of ur fan situation. To be sure of this download a program such as speedfan to gauge your temps.

Boots up but only runs for about a minute. Then fan runs at full speed constantly with no video. Also front panel popwer switch appears shorted. i.e as soon as you plug in the PC starts


Very well could be overheating or powersupply problem. Most Definately Hardware related. You can try opening up the case and blowing air into it from compressor. (Make sure to do this outside away from clean items). Also, check CPU fan and heatsink to make sure fairly clean. CPU fan may also be old and need to be replaced. Don't put case back on and try again. Look at CPU fan to see if moving (or struggling). If computer stays on longer then CPU fan most likely the problem. If off in same time as before then most likely the main power supply problem, in which case the only way to check this is to replace the power supply. Hope this helps, Best Regards,

My acer aspire cooling fan is not working properly so it turns off unexpectedly several times a day.


if the cooling works well the fan gonna shutdown automatic. nothing to worry about, but if it does when the computer is still hot then you need to replace the fan.

Acer t310 fan runs when shutdown


More than likely the cpu is still hot even after you shut off you computer, so as a saftey precaution the fan is trying to cool it down,(which is a good thing).

Over Heating Problem In Acer Aspire L100


There are two solutions to this problem. First set the fan in the PC Bios to rub at full speed all the time. This was too noisy for me.

Second, If you are running Windows Vista, you can adjust the Maximum Porcessor Utilization. From the Windows Control Panel select the Power Options icon. Then select "Change plan settings" for which ever power plan the PC is set to use. Then select "Change advanced power settings". Expand the "Processor power managment" by clicking on the "+" symbol. Finally click on the "+" for "Maximum processor state". I would try changing this setting to "90 %". This worked fine on my ACER L100 and it no longer overheats.
