Acer aspire 5733 over heating and shutting down


I've seen this before in desktops and laptops. Either your fan doesn't spin at sufficient speed to cool the CPU or something is working your laptop to hard. Some virus software (Norton) randomly start a process that scans every file in your hard drive, which takes almost all your CPU power. If that is the case, boot in Safe Mode and uninstall.

Laptop powers on than shuts down


Michael
I am afraid that English my fails me now. Is the power on when you mean that you have shut the laptop down. If that is the case it helps to close every program down before shutting down.
good luck

I need to know how to disassemble the laptop so i can clean the fan please


Since I don't know your laptop's brand / model, I will give you general details. Shut down your laptop (not hibernate, just shut down) from the start button at the lower left corner of the desktop. After the laptop shut down remove the power plug and the battery from it's place. Put the laptop upside down and unscrew all the screws at the bottom that hold a separate smaller cover. Slide the cover out and unscrew the inner screws in order to disassemble the parts of the laptop like hard disk, memory etc. At the end unscrew the screws that hold the main bottom cover and slowly open it up. It's a good idea to keep a note of what screw goes where especially if they are not all the same. Use a soft brush (and if possible air under pressure) to clean up pedantically the air blinds all around the laptop. In case of using air under pressure leave the laptop to "rest" (and the temperatures and humidity to balance) for about 15 minutes. Reassemble the laptop at the reverse order.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer including the brand / model to give you more details.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

I have a ACER 5735 . The laptop shuts down suddenly while its on and sometimes im not able to switch on the laptop and even if i switch on , then once again the power goes off immediately . What would be...


Hi,

The reason for the sudden shut down of your computer is because of overheating of the 'case', where the CPU is mounted. Overheating can be due to dust accumulation on the heat sink, which prevents dissipation of heat. The possible solution to combat overheating issue is to keep the laptop dust free by cleaning out debris at the vents frequently. Note that a laptop has a much smaller cooling area in comparison with desktops and hence laptops tend to accumulate dust a lot quicker than desktops. This is because all the dust/debris, in the case of laptops, accumulate in the cooling fins.

My laptop won't shut down properly!


Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

Laptop shuts off after powered on omnibook 6000 It runs for a few seconds and shuts down .... it that a bad power supply or what?


You might have a broken or dirty CPU fan. The CPU heat sink fan is responsible to cool down your CPU while it is on. If it is broken or stuck(dirty), then your machine will power off automatically preventing CPU damage or worse-case-scenario:FIRE caused by "burnout".

Your CPU heat sink might not be mounted on your LT properly. Also causing overheating; thus shutting down.

Its a laptop right ? Right! Another thing you could try is to unplug the battery, and let it run from AC power only and see if it makes any difference.

Problem with my Computer


Is this a desktop or a laptop?

In either case, it could be one of your fans is not functioning. There is a fan on top of the heatsink on the CPU. If it's not turning then the CPU will shut itself down before it's destroyed...this is a good thing. If this is a desktop then the case fan may have failed. Make certain both of these fans are turning. You will need to open the computer to see the CPU fan.

If they are both turning then it's possible the CPU heatsink fins are filled with dust. This prevents airflow. If this is the case, use your vaccuum cleaner to get the dust out. This will be much easier if you have a desktop, opening laptops is more involved.

Please let us know what you find.
