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.

Replace the thermal grease. My fan would always get loud and then my system would shut off. After I replaced the thermal grease, it is quiet and has not shut off unexpectedly.

No liquid cooling would be to hard to install. you can attach another fan. but you will still have a problem. the downside to these computers is there short of made to overheat. you can attempt to do liquid cooling as others have done. but thats an expensive waste. your best bet is to buy a new case and mother board. for about 80 dollars. swap out all your guts and be happy. youd have everything and not fry your dvd rom and harddrive. as most of these L100's have nice processors and a decent amount of ram.

Laptop shuts down


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job", to remove the dust, because the dust is acting as a layer of insulation, trapping heat inside your computer.

Reload the battery.
Connect the AC power.
Start your laptop, and check that the fans inside the notebook computer are pushing air out of the exhaust-vents. If not, the fan(s) have failed, and you need a professional computer technician to disassemble your computer, and fix the fans.

L100 overheating


In most of the cases the cooling radiator inside the computer is full of dust, clean it as well as the fanblades and things will improve.

Try to find a place nothing is blocking the inlet on the back and the outlets on top and in the front, open the part which covers the usb and other connections on the front.

Possible bad motherboard/overheating problem w/ Acer Aspire mini L100


You wont be able to replace the mother board as it is a propriatary Acer unit and is now obsolete.

In all honesty these machines are so poorly designed you would be better to write it off.

The 3 machines i had fail and managed to repair are all now dead again with different faults.

Sorry.

Possible overheating problem for Acer Aspire mini L100


I am not totally sure if this is the problem, but I would suggest that you may have a power supply issue or possibly it going out. If the computer runs fine, and then shuts down, than this can be more symptomatic to a overheating issue.

In my limited experience with overheat issues, the computer actually smelled like it was getting hot, and then it would slow down and then sometimes stop. Most computers have fail safe settings where they either alarm, or shut down or both when they overheat.
