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!

Hey,

the laptop is overheating and shuts down to prevent hardware failure. Use canned air to blow dust out from the fans that may improve it a little.

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:

Acer aspire 5600 shut down


it sounds like the video card cannot support or handle the pressure put on it by the game you are trying to play, if it is an OEM game have a look for the minium system requirements that the game will run on, you can also find this information on line, you will probably find out that the graphics card doesn't support the game, do this check with all games you try to play
another thing is to upgrade your memory because some laptops don't have a devoted graphics card thus they are relient on the system memory

good luck

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.

Acer Aspire Shuts down when I play my on-line game


A notebook can only shut down if the processor is getting HOT that is by itself. I can timagine its a virus because you said you formatted it?. You keep maintaining that it keepsshutting down. to me thats the CPU because its getting too HOT> How to fix is to check to see if the fan is ok the one on top. Even when it glogs up the fan can always clear it ......may be a faulty fan check it...
