Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5022 Notebook
My brother gave me his Acer Aspire 5512WLMi few weeks ago, I check the notebook specs., it fits to min. requirement for my online games. I reformatted the notebook just to be sure that I'm free for any viruses and maleware and it's runs very good. I launch the game, and it runs smoothly I can even chat with co-players or even PK, just like im playing with my desktop PC but suddenly it shuts down (just like the power cord has been pulled out in your desktop)the time I turn it on, it only runs disk check then no error have been reported.I launch the game again and still shuts down,interval time of shuts down was not consistent, the longest it reach almost an hour but the shortest is seconds only. My brother told me that he also experience this problem sometimes when he launch a lot of applications at the same time and after a few days it's shuts down. I read some tips on other forum they are more focus on overheating causes of fan problem or clogged heatsink with dust. I check my notebook but everything is ok and clean, both heatsink and fan. Just to be sure I already flushed it out using compressed air but seems nothing change. Hint: I notice something before it's shuts down I can hear the processor fan spins very fast then power out. Does this notebook can't handle the game? If it's overheating problem, how can I evaluate it? I almost apply all the things I knew about PC trouble shooting and still can't find the perfect solution. Hope you can assist me. TY
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...
