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

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.

Acer Aspire One PC starts to boot up but then shuts down with a snap noise.


This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard

ACER aspire one netbook model# A0A150 cooling fan quit


If it is just the fan then yes you can fix it yourself its just a matter of getting the computer open enough to where you can get to the fan. Then all you have to do is take out the old and install the new. No biggie. There are some cases however where components on the motherboard can cause the fan to stop running. This is pretty rare though. Fans are the easiest fix so I hope for your sake it is the fans. Sometimes if there is a lot of dust in the fan you can even get it to work just by cleaning the fan off.

Acer aspire 5000 unexpected shutdowns, random, fan running.


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have you cleaned out the airvents and fan area. these build up with dust and if the unit gets too hot it will shut down unexpected

Also always use on a hard surface so the airvents are kept clear

thanks

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,

Aspire 9500 just shuts off


Hello,
Maybe it needs cleaning for better ventilation or the CPU fan may be faulty. You will need to have those checked.

Thanks,

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.

when it shutsdown, does it later start by it self?

Cuts off unexpectively


In the control panel, there is an icon for power settings. Set the fan for maximum cooling. Make sure the exhaust ports on the computer are blown out. Don't use the computer on a soft surface.

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).
