Question about Acer Ferrari One FO2001799 Netbook

1 Answer

Hi, does anyone happen to know why Acer Aspire FO would be shutting down (I assume from overheating because it is quite hot when it happens), sometimes even when there are just a couple of simple applications running? Is there anything I can do to stop that? I do as a rule make sure that the ventilation ridges are not blocked. The problem started a few months ago and the computer is now nearing the end of its one-year warranty... Thanks for any hint! Best, N.

First try taking off the bottom access panels, and make sure there isn't a large amount of dust/hair that could be preventing it from cooling properly. If everything's clean, you should call Acer ASAP to use your warranty before it expires, as it is probably a hardware problem that isn't user fixable.

Your CPU is overheating. When this happens the safety mechanism causes your computer to shutdown to prevent further problems. The CPU fan will need to be replaced.

Acer aspire overheating fix


What model of acer apire ?
When a laptop gets hot physically hot, to the touch you know something isn\'t quite right. It\'s normal for a computer to get a bit warm as it runs, which is why computers have a built-in cooling fan in addition to a heatsink and cooling vents. Excessive heat, however, is almost always an indication that something is malfunctioning. This is no different with the Acer Aspire 5000.

What\'s Happened If you\'ve ever looked inside of a computer or seen an "exploded view" of a laptop, you will know that thousands of components work together to ensure your computer\'s best performance. The cooling fan is activated by temperature readings from the central processing unit, which heats up and cools down depending on what it is being used for. Sitting idle, the temperature of the CPU will be low and the fan won\'t come on. When the computer is performing a few tasks simultaneously, the CPU is taxed and the fan kicks in. When you hear the fan whirling excessively, the computer is overheating which can damage the CPU. Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490 Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink. b> Checking Temperatures You can download programs to monitor the core temperature of your CPU. Programs like Core Temp, Speed Fan or Motherboard Monitor use the hardware monitoring devices built into your Aspire notebook to track its core temperature. Different sources suggest that the Aspire 5000 can run at a different maximum temperatures. Users on Tech Support Forum say 50 to 60 degrees Celsius is normal even optimal and that above 75 degrees is a problem. Acer\'s technical manual for the Aspire talks about external temperatures for running the computer efficiently (between minus 20 and 30 degrees), but it says nothing of internal temperatures. A few different users reported overheating to the point of 90 degrees, at which point the computer freezes and shuts off. Warranty Fix Computer original equipment manufacturers like Acer sell every computer with a limited warranty. Overheating is usually covered by this warranty. If your computer is repeatedly reaching high temperatures, and you\'ve recorded the temperatures with software, contact Acer for a replacement or a repair. Out-of-Warranty Fix The simplest way to address an overheating problem is to let the computer breathe a little. Make sure that you use it on a flat, hard surface so that air can pass to the fan easily and without interruption. You can buy laptop cooling pads at most computer stores that are designed with this in mind. As a complex fix for an out-of-warranty system, you can follow a picture tutorial from MPS Computers to replace the sealant around the heatsink with a new glue called Arctic MX-2. This glue allows more heat to escape and brings the core temperatures down about 10 degrees.

Computer heats up and shuts down


Hi,
I would suggest you open the notebook by yourself and clean it from dust. I had an Acer notebook that shut down very often because it had so much dust inside that it overheated.

I have an Acer Aspire 6530 running Windows Vista and today it started shutting off at random. When it shuts off the bottom 2/3 of the screen has blue stripes across it, and on the blue is text I cannot...


Good question.

Does the computer feel hot when it shuts off?

Does it always happen at the same exact time?

Can you try booting the computer into Safe Mode? (What Happens?)

First thing I'd try is uninstalling the video adapter driver under device manager and restart the computer.

Let me know what happens!

Computer shuts down for no discernable reason


Im not a expert but my opinion would be to just buy a new power supply. Installation is easy. Thats one thing that gets replaced most often out of all pc parts. I would wait for a expert opinon though, good luck
