Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi I have an Acer aspire L100 and it keeps turning itself off, It has been doing this randomly for the last week or so but from today as soon as You log into a user name and it loads up then it just shuts down straight away, I have tried using a hoover to **** the dust from the fan as i thought it might be overheating but it is still doing it, any ideas what the problem could be?

Try logging in under Safe mode or better yet go in the bios mode and depending on your system there will be a field to check the CPU tempature Leave it in Bios for ahile and see if the temp goes up or stays steady. Also boot it up with case open if possible. Watch the fans and see if they are all moving at aq descent speed

I reset my surge protector and the computer wont power up. i think i need a new power supply. the power cord is working fine. Please let me know where i can find a power supply for the aspire...


The Acer Aspire L100 is a desktop computer powered by a special DC adapter and power cable. The computer's motherboard incorporates a fuse designed to prevent any power surges from damaging the computer. If the fuse burns out due to a power surge or for any other reason, the computer will no longer function. You can check the motherboard fuse for damage yourself, then take it to a trained technician for replacement if needed

Shut down the Acer Aspire L100 and turn the tower around.

Press the "On/Off" button on the front of the tower. If the computer will not boot and the fan does not turn on, the fuse may be burned out.

Unplug the power cord from the rear of the tower

Turn the tower on its side and remove the Phillips-head screws connecting the back panel to the Aspire L100's cabinet.

Pull out the motherboard assembly gently from the back of the cabinet. The internal fuse is located on the motherboard behind the DC power jack, which is to the right of the monitor jack

Let me know if this helped..
