The rivets holding the screws holding the CPU heatsink on the main board have come adfift. Refit the rivets loosly back onto the mainboard then fit longer screws (10 or 11mm). These will screw through the heatsink, rivets and board into threads built into the lower case. If you own a 4150 you will almost certainly need to do this unless you have already had it repaired under warranty. I reckon about a 80% failure rate in my experience

That is where the processor and fan are situated, so dont worry as long as it is kept ventillated the heat is naturaly expected

    sorry, rest of solution is it may be the graphics driver, go to the acer site or the intel site and download latest drivers, or your memory is too low and causing sysem errors, but would need to know more of what happens at shutdown, eg any screen messages

    check first around the vents and hoover to clear any blockage there may be.

    If your system has only 256MB of memory installed and playing a game, then the graphics can take upto 64MB from the 256MB, not to mention what the programmes are using up.

    Minimum memory rquired nowadays for basic usage is 512MB ram.

    But normally you get a memory fault on screen, it may be an overheating problem, make sure there is ventillation and also that the fan is kicking in but not that often as acer fans are normally only intermitant not always running

When watching a movies or playing xbox my avr220 powers down when ever there is a boom in the movie or games or tv this just started about 2 months now

Something is getting overloaded.

When this happens:

Is it running hot? Find out why.
Is the volume set extremely high? Turn it down.
Are the speaker settings proper for the types and bass handling capacity of your speakers? Set them appropriately.

I can't watch movies in my laptop, even the downloaded movies i can't watch it. where can i watch?

you need to find an approprieate programme that will be able to play movies of any format.

go to and download VLC or Videolan and a Gomplayer or Divx. I am sure that these would be able to play you your movies.

have fun
