Hello there,i have an ACER ASPIRE T-180,and the fan from top of the processor stop working,i don`t know why,help....:(

Check the fan is not blocked and is plugged in, (the connector is good connection). If all looks well and the fan still doesn't turn, replace the heatsink and fan, or the fan on its own if you can get one.
Most PC shops stock them or go online to ebay

Acer Aspire AST180-ED380M was working very slow and locking up; did a system restore; then had to reinstall operating system (computer error message); now it seems to time out and reboot automatically,...

Sounds like the CPU is overheating. The usual cause is the CPU heatsink and fan need cleaning. Take the side cover off and have a look see. Also, it's possible that the heatsink may have come loose and isn't making good contact with the CPU. In either case you may need some CPU paste. Also check any case fans to make sure they are working.
After checking those things, suspect the power supply, memory, and possibly the hard drive.

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 L100 overheating

You could try a new cpu fan and heatsink. They are normally inexpensive. if this does not work make sure all the case fans are working and check to see if your ram is overheating

Hi i have a acer aspire 5044 and it keeps shutting it self down after 10 - 15 mins of use

This sounds like an overheating issue. You need to open the case and check for dust and clean it out. If dust is not the issue then the heatsink compound will need to be changed, this will involve removing the proccessor heatsink and fan, removing the old compound and applying new.
If you are familiar with the BIOS you can check your processor heat readings just prior to the shut down if you can.
