your computer must be overheating. itunes, reapPlayer, windows media player, and the likes require a lot of processing power to decompress and decode files, which can cause the system to get hot and some systems shut down automatically when the temperature reaches an unsafe level.you can try to clean the fins on the heat sink that sits under the cpu. when they collect dust it restricts the airflow and prevents proper cooling. but if this does not resolve your concern, it could be that overheating is not the main problem. it could be a bad memory. you can try to open your cpu and remove/replace one RAM unit and check if that'll solve your problem. if not, you can try to test all the RAM sticks that you have to determine the culprit.

hope this'll help you

ciao!

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..

    My acer aspire l100 keeps shutting off. it sometimes will stay on for like two minutes but most of the time it shuts down after like 30 seconds. it works fine in safe mode. most of the time it shuts off...


    this seems like a software issue . if you can not run your system but ift works fine in safe mode try to run a system restore from factory disks and see where that gets you,

    Thanks for the response to my Acer L100. have checked the cables and they are fine. have noticed the fan doesn't start up when the computer is switched on....could this be the problem???


    The CPU fan should turn on when the PC is powered on, and then it usually slows down until the workload on the processor causes it to heat up, then the fan spins faster, it might also be a power supply issue, but if your able to boot and its giving you messages and not shutting down then you should re-install the operating system.

    Power but no display acer aspire L100


    Try these sequence(you need another one good computer to test and interchange component and you will find out the problem):
    - check your RAM, if you use two RAM start computer using one and interchange it to find out which one is bad
    - if your RAM OK, check your VGA
    - if your RAM and VGA OK, try to check your power supply, sometimes defective PS cannot supply sufficient power to all component to work.

    hope this will help you.

    I own a acer aspire L100


    You have a PCI slot in the computer. If it's available, you can get a 256MB or 512MB PCI video card. Anything you get would be an improvement to the internal card you have. Just familiarize yourself with your monitor's inputs - DVI (the white connector) or VGA (the blue connector).

    Here are some options:

    Possible overheating problem for Acer Aspire mini L100


    I am not totally sure if this is the problem, but I would suggest that you may have a power supply issue or possibly it going out. If the computer runs fine, and then shuts down, than this can be more symptomatic to a overheating issue.

    In my limited experience with overheat issues, the computer actually smelled like it was getting hot, and then it would slow down and then sometimes stop. Most computers have fail safe settings where they either alarm, or shut down or both when they overheat.
