Most properly the laptop shutdown itself it due to processor overheat problem. Bring back the laptop to the shop you changef the fan and ask them to check whether the heatsink with fan is tight properly to the processor.

I tried to hook up my Dell Optiplex 745 and I herd a split second pop.


It is likely your power supply was fried, but this does not mean you are out a computer. Bring it to a local repair shop and they can swap your power supply that can adequately charge your components.

Tip

Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop


Instead of going to the start menu, choosing shutdown, then waiting for the computer to shut all the programs down, you can create a shortcut on the desktop to do it quickly. You can create a shutdown, restart, or a logoff icon on your desktop which will work a lot quicker than using the usual buttons in the start menu.
Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop

1. Go to your blank desktop
2. Right click on a blank space and a menu will appear
3. Choose New from the menu
4. Then choose Shortcut
5. Where it says type the location of the item type in shutdown.exe -s
6. Then press next
7. Now enter a name for your icon. Mine is called SHUTDOWN NOW
8. Press next
9. The Shutdown shortcut will be on your desktop

Different combination you can type in when creating a shortcut to shutdown, restart, or logoff.


Shutdown.exe -s

Shutsdown your computer in 30 seconds and will close all programs and ask you to save all work.

shutdown.exe -r
Restarts your computer in 30 seconds.


shutdown.exe -l
This one will logoff your computer back to the welcome screen where you will need to login again.

shutdown.exe -s -t 1
Shutsdown your computer in one second. the -t 1 tells it how long to wait. (one second in this case) You can put -t 10 or even -t 1120.

shutdown.exe -s -t 15 -c "Goodbye you idiot"
This is my favorite code. It will shutdown in 15 seconds and have a message in the box saying "Goodbye you idiot"
The -c "bla bla bla" stands for a comment.

Notes:

* to stop the computer from shutting down type shutdown /a into the run box located in the start menu..
* -f will force everything to close immediately without asking to save anything.

My acer computer says that repair recommended and look like it's gonna boot but it display the same message


This is usually a sign that your computer was incorrectly shutdown or it lost power. You may be able to choose "Start windows normally" and hopefully everything should be ok!

Otherwise , your windows installation is corrupted. You may be able to run the "Startup Repair" option by choosing the "Repair My Computer" option which you are presented with.

If that doesn't work you will have to reinstall Windows and start from scratch. You will lose all the data on the computer doing this unless you take it to a computer shop where they will be able to recover your data before reinstalling Windows.

My acer eRecovery is missing


When a person buys a computer, and turns it on for the first time, you are repeatedly asked if you wish to make a Backup.

This is your Restoration (Recovery) disk

Did you make one?

No?

Then either contact Acer for the disk, or buy a fresh, new genuine copy of Windows, and install it.

When asked choose Repair. Non-Destructive Installation.

[Microsoft makes one Master disk. From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer]

Or see if a nearby computer repair shop can repair the basic Windows files.

[NO, I do not agree that the Recovery files are on the harddrive, and not a separate disk.
The reason however, that this method was brought into play, was because of users.

1) Lost the recovery disk.
2) Afraid to use the recovery disk, so they just take it down to a computer shop anyway.

Hmmm, I'm a pre-built computer manufacturer......................

Say the disk costs around 50 cents USD.
If I take that times 100,000 computers, I save $50,000 dollars.

Users don't use them anyway, I can save $50,000 dollars.........hey, whats the problem?
I'll just put it on the harddrive, and tell them to make a Backup disk.

NOW people aren't even making a Backup disk! Sheesh!

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).
