Hi,
this is a general problem, with most laptops not just Acer.
the more modern-faster and more memory installed, all contribute to these factors. battery power is standard for lasting anywhere between 45 minutes to 2 hours. 2 main causes of overheating, are that the fan exhaust outlet may be blocked or restricting warm air extraction from the cpu. secondly the heatsink material ( Thermal-Patch Or Paste ) between cpu and heatsink, is insufficient. there are other reasons but these are the 2 most common. if the laptop is warranted, i,d suggest returning it, for repair/replacement. if it isn,t then locate the cpu fan, and clean out any dust build up, usually between the fan and outer casing.

hope this helps you.

Mike @ Compurepair.

I have a acer laptop that I let my son use and I've noticed that it is very slow and also it gets very hot. What do you think the problem is?


Dear Kristen,
1. Your laptop is running slow because there are too many applications running in the background. Go through the start menu and remove them if you don't need them.
2. Defragment your hard disks. Use a tool such as O & O Defrag Pro.
3. Your Acer heating up is a normal issue. Some older acer laptops heat up quite a lot. This is not an issue in laptops purchased after 1/1/2010.
If you are worried, get your laptop checked and serviced by a qualified technician or just simply hand it over to the nearest service center.

I have a Acer Ferrari 4006wlmi, which I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with it. It does turn on but HD indicator just stays lit (no flickering as to say it's accessing), it was undergoing...


Please remove the laptop battery and disconnect the Ac power. Then press POWER ON button and hold for 1-2 minutes. Then power on with the AC adapter only. Then start the laptop. It will powered on. After that shutdown laptop and reinsert the laptopbattery.
Even it wont work, remove the battery, hard disk and ram. Just insert the RAM and try to check the display. then insert hard disk and check the working nature of laptop on AC power only..

Further any clues please provide the feedback..

Acer ferrari display problem


If you mean like squares of pixels then it will be the video memory on your video card failing or over heating.
Check the video card and make sure it's not clogged with hair and dust etc and reseat it. Also use good thermal paste when you put it back together between the heat sink and the GPU.

If that fails to improve things then a new video card will sort it right out.
You could always send it to me.. I have a thing for Ferrari's ;)
