This system uses the Intel X3100 integrated video chipset. This video uses system RAM for video production. It is quite likely that one of the memory modules has a faulty memory address. Most modern system have 2 RAM modules, with allows you to test them by using one at a time. If the issue occurs with one module removed, but goes away when you use the other, then the one causing the issue is bad and will need to be replaced.

My Acer z5600 just shuts off while I'm doing something without any notice.I gets very hot at the top of the screen and then shuts off without warning.The screen just goes black and I can not turn


Your processor is overheating. Or the fan for the CPU is dead or the way to eject the warm air is blocked. Try to work with your laptop on a table, if the problem persists, is the fan other way you have to work everytime on the table.

My Acer Aspire desktop computer died without warning, I think it is a hardware issue. I can load my factory backup into it, but when i try to start windows, it says an unexpected problem prevents windows...


Yes you may. You can remove the D drive, and install it as a Slave on another computer. Then all you do is access to it, and get the info you need from it. Good luck

Acer Aspire One Netbook will not stay running


Most likely it is overheating. The cpu has a thermal monitoring device implanted in it that when it gets too hot it turns off the system so that the cpu does not fry. You have to make sure the vents are unobstructed & that while in use the laptop is on a smooth surface. You can upgrade the fan if you wish or purchase a laptop cooling pad that sits underneath the unit while in use. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my solution. Thanks.

Help !!!!my laptop shuts down


We had some Acers do the exact same thing and we fixed them. I believe it shuts right off as a safety. Usually when the processor gets too hot it powers right off to save the laptop from burning up. First quick fix it to blow out the vents and especially blow out the heat sink vent. Also could be that the heat paste that sits between the CPU and Heat Sink could have dried up and stopped doing it's job to remove heat efficiently from the CPU. Big problem in earlier model Gateway laptops too. This can be fixed by acquiring some paste from a local tech shop and reapplying it. If you feel unsure about it, take it to a tech shop and they can do it quick for cheap if not for free. Keep me posted - Scotty
