Acer :: Aspire 5520 Shutting Down. NOT Overheating

Mar 11, 2010

I'm in the repair field and I've got a customer's Aspire 5520 that was brought in for overheating. The machine had gone to Iraq, and the customer has indoor dogs..so yes, the fins on the heat pipe were very clogged. Got it all cleaned out, and the machine is still shutting itself off after between 10 minutes and 30 seconds of use.

Now, the machine isn't overheating. SpeedFan and a few other CPU temp utilities are showing the CPU to be around 45*c when the machine is randomly shutting down. 45c is not what I'd consider hot for a Turion x2.

It's not a RAM issue, I've replaced the CPU and am getting the same symptoms.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Overheating Then Shutting Down

Dec 29, 2008

I think that it is an overheating problem considering my laptop (ONLY recently) seems to be getting very hot, to the point it needs to shut down. But this is the strange thing:

I had Windows Vista installed on this laptop (Acer Aspire 5100) earlier, and my battery almost never heated up to the point it needed to shut down, or even heat up to an extreme level.... But now that I have downgraded to Windows XP SP2, it seems to shut down MUCH more often. But I did find one thing of concern. Around the same time my laptop started shutting down, I installed an application called 'Game Speed Changer' and that whenever I had used it, it slowed my computer down immensely, and then when I went to close it, the BSOD would appear. Every time.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV 4 Overheating/Shutting Itself Off

Sep 8, 2009

I currently own a HP DV4 1275mx laptop. I have had it since April 2009. This is a product replacement for my DV2000 that had the bad nvidia chip and left this world. It only lasted 9 months.

Here are my issues (i do say they are eerily familiar)

Its freaking hot as a volcano. So hot that I can hardly use my touchpad mouse without it hurting my fingers. I thought I was just being paranoid when I first got it since my last one got hot and then out of nowhere just died. So, I downloaded speed fan a few months ago once it started to really worry me.

The temps range from at the lowest 65C and will get up to 105C. I called HP support right away (3 months ago) they ran BIOS updates and all of that and sent me on my merry way.

Well now it likes to just shut itself off (i'm assuming a fail safe so it doesn't blow up on me). It takes a good few minutes and at least 3 or 4 tries to get it to boot up all the way again. Called HP again, ran the same updates and some diagnostics that my computer couldn't even get through without overheating. They are having me send it in for repair...............

Dell :: M4400 Overheating And Shutting Down!

Mar 13, 2010

I don't know if I shoudl be posting this in the M4400 thread, so please accept my apologies if it should be.

I'm a proud M4400 owner, and have been for a while now. However, I just installed Win7 x64 (upgrade from Vista x64), and the first thing I did was install RMClock then undervolt it. I'm very familiar with doing this, and with overclocking/undervolting in general (my PC is a 4.5GHz Q9650!).

After undervolting it to 1.025v at the 10x multiplier I set about to do some stress testing, whilst also monitoring temps with coretemp.

I guess for temp measurements to be meaningful we need to start with Ambient temps. In my room it is probably around 13-15C (55-59F), as in too cold to sit around in a t-shirt (I'm in Austria, it's winter, and the heating isn't cranked because I like to run my computer cool!).

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y560 Overheating And Shutting Down

Feb 11, 2012

I've bought the Lenovo Y560 laptop ~1.5 years ago and I've been very satisfied with its performace overall, but I've recently noticed, it overheats and shuts down when playing newer games (doesnt appear in games like WoW or LoL or similar low end system req games). And we all know why we bought such a high performance machine (and it isnt to use Facebook). 
 
I've installed Hardware Monitor and my idle temperatures on my i7 are ~60 degrees and my GPU is ~55 degrees. Seems pretty ok I guess. Under heavy load, they exceed 97 degrees and thats when the system shuts down, beacuse of thermal protection. 
 
I've tried testing with bios 71 and bios 59, but the problems persist and I didnt really notice much of a difference, but I have read that under some bios the fan doesnt go over a certain %, but never reaches 100% speed. I've also updated GPU drivers and energy management thingy.
 
Now, I have come to two solutions - I am going to clean the pc today, apply new thermal paste and blow out the dust and stuff. The other is, but I dont really want to do it, is to cut the blue wire that is the fan control one, but then the fan would be at 100% constantly, which is just not needed (noise and stuff). 
 
Those underload temperatures are measured with my cooling station active (homemade from 2 old GPU fans).

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Shutting Off Randomly But Isn't Overheating

Jan 18, 2015

My wife's Inspiron 1545 from late 2008 is having a new issue wherein it is randomly shutting off but not due to heat.  The computer will shut off when not connected to AC power randomly.  Sometimes it will last 10 minutes, other time 40.  What's odd the is computer reads anywhere from 50% - 85% battery life left.  

I'm certain it's not overheating because it doesn't get hot.  Also,I disassembled rear cover and reset the CPU cooler with new thermal paste as a precaution yet the problem persists.

I ran the boot hardware diagnostic test all the way through with no errors.  The harddrive has no audible clicking/crunching which usually indicates an HDD headed south.

Acer Aspire V3-571 :: Keeps Shutting Down

Feb 10, 2015

I have had a look on the forum and from what I saw it was at regular intervals when peoples laptops were shutting down.My laptop shuts down when moved this is often when the laptop is being picked up. I have had a fresh install and still not rectified. Therefore I feel it's down to the internals. I took it to my local shop and tbh he made a meal of it and messed up my windows so got it back and thought to have a go alot self. The fan has been cleaned so don't think its overheating as it can turn off after a min when the laptop is moved or can run for hours if left on a table or something. It makes a click sound and it shuts off.

Acer :: Aspire E15 Randomly Shutting Down

Jan 19, 2015

I got a new Acer a few months ago and it worked fine in the beginning.  In the last few weeks, it has been randomly shutting down.  It does not show the normal shut down message you would see when using power button or Start Menu but just shuts off.  When it comes back on, it says Windows did not shut down properly.
 
I seemed to have narrowed this down to when I move the screen or move the laptop.

Acer Aspire V5-473P-5602 :: Shutting Down With And Without AC Adapter

Jan 6, 2015

I bought this acer laptop about 5 months ago, it was working fine up until a couple days ago that I started to notice that it would shut down after 3-5 minutes of usage, sometimes shorter, and while plugged in, it would shut down before I could even type in my password.

I'm certain that overheating is not the problem, the tempature inside my laptop hovers around 50 and it never feels hot to the touch when it shuts down.

Acer :: Aspire 5520 Shutdown

Sep 2, 2009

I have a Aspire 5520-5912 laptop I am trouble shooting for a relative that randomly shuts down just before, or shortly after it boots to windows.

I have tested the hard drive in my Desktop and scanned it for viruses, swapped out the memory, re applied thermal paste on the cpu heat sink and made sure it was not clogged with dust.

I think I have it narrowed down to a bad MB or CPU but was wandering if anyone else has had any issues like this and what the problem was.

Jan 20, 2008

I have a new OTB acer aspire 5520, and on initial booting everything worked sweetly but when i am trying to access my crystal eye cam on YM or any IM programs it says the webcam is not connected, Now I checked device manager and there is no webcam, so i installed the driver from the erecovery management tool I tried first the BISON driver and utility without success upon installation the program says the computer should display a "found new hardware" message, but nothing showed up. then when it restarted my machine and when i checked on device manager still no cam... next i uninstalled the BISON driver and installed the 2nd one (SUYIN) with the same results. I searched the support and download section of ACER online and tried a third driver the CHICONY and still the same results.. Finally i re installed my system to full factory default and re tried everything still the same problems...

Acer :: Aspire 5520 - Accidentally Deleted My Whole OS

Sep 18, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 5520 laptop with 320gb hd space .. 8600m gs video card ... 4gb ram... Vista 32-bit oem.. etc.

The problem is that I've just accidentaly deleted my whole OS.
I booted with my Vista 64-bit disc so I could format one of my drives, but I stupidly formatted the wrong one. (the one with my OS)

So now I just installed Vista 64-bit on it, so I could at least do something with my laptop (watch dvds etc.), but I can't get the internet to work anymore because of all the important stuff that got deleted.

What I was using was some public WLAN.

Now it complains that a network adapter doesn't exist.. or something like that. I don't even know what that is.

Is there any way I can fix this myself? I just need to get my internet to work again.

Acer :: Aspire 5520- Wierd Videocard

Sep 15, 2007

Bougth a Acer Aspire 5520 couple of weeks ago, tried to install XP on it, thing crashed. Back on normal Vista (not from recovery) and installed the Nvidia driver(101.54 / 32 bit) which comes wit the acer website and the Nforce driver for network connction etc. Got a Gforce 8400M G with a AMD Turion64 X2(1.8 Ghz)

Now when i try gaming on this thing it's totally wack. Installed Counter-strike and World of warcraft, and both run not good... It's just lagging a lot, not internet lag, graphics lag. I tried downloading some other drivers, but no one seems to be working, mostly getting the message: 'u need a Vista 64 bit for this driver, and u have a Vista 64bit' or 'the hardware for this driver cannot be found'. No idea what to do to fix this problem according to drivers... could be really simple.

Acer :: My Aspire 5520 Laptop Fan Is Extremely Loud

Nov 24, 2008

I've had my Acer Aspire 5520 for about 6 months now, and I did not get a warranty with it. Within the last month or so the fan has begun to get really loud. I have ways of quieting it down temporarily, hanging it off the table or propping it up, but even then the fan will burst into loud, annoying noises suddenly and for no apparent reason. It's kinda like a click-click-click noise, like when you put a strip of paper into a house fan (I know we all did this as a kid...) and the blades hit the paper as they go by, making really obnoxious noises...

So anyway, I'm just wondering if this is fixable, or if it isn't where I can find a replacement fan that works for my computer. I'm a software junky, and I don't really know enough about hardware, so when I went on Newegg and Frys websites I was unable to figure out what kind of fans would work for my laptop. If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it, as I spend a lot of time in the library at my school and I don't want to disturb everyone else in the whole building. In fact, when ever I shop for laptops, keyboards are one of the first things I look at- if the keyboard is too loud or awkward I will NOT buy that laptop.
