Acer :: Aspire 5738G Fan Runs Almost Constantly

Nov 8, 2009

When I power on, after about 5-6 minutes the fan (I assume the CPU fan) kicks in. However, it then seems to remain on constantly until the laptop is turned off, even if I'm only idling. This is slightly annoying, not just because of the noise, but also it seems to have quite a noticeable effect on the battery life.

I have installed SpeedFan to keep track of the CPU temp and it seems that the fan kicks in initally when the core temps reach about 35 C, but then the fan does not switch off, even when temps drop back down to 25/26 C, which seems very cool.

On every other laptop I have used (none of which were Acers), the CPU fan only comes on now and again, as and when it is needed.

So, is this normal behaviour or is there possibly a fault with the fan control mechanism ? If so I will consider taking back to the retailer for an exchange.

Dell :: Fan Runs Constantly On XPS 14z

Mar 14, 2013

The fan on my laptop runs constantly. The noise is very annoying. I have been having this problem for 6months plus. In reading previous posts, upgrading teh BIOS seemed to resolve the problem for a while, but it is happening again now. The fan runs from the second I turn the computer on.  I am running the A02 BIOS. I just ran diagnostics and the fan test passed - speeds were 4500, 4500, 4000. current CPU temps ranged from 68-71. What else can I do?

Dell :: Studio 1535- Fan Now Runs Constantly

Jan 21, 2009

In the last two weeks or so, the fan on my Studio 15 (1535) has been running continuosly. Even when it's under little/no load for extended periods of time, the fan stays on at higher-than-low-speed (from the sound)?

I've had it for about four months and this wasn't an issue until very recently. I have updated the BIOS twice (A02 to A03, then A03 to A06) and wonder if the most recent update was the culprit. I skipped A05 initially, but a few days ago I re-flashed using A05 to see if that might fix the issue- no dice! I'm debating whether I should go back to A03 and see if that does the trick?

But I don't want to keep arbitrarily flashing the BIOS over and over if there's no chance of it fixing the fan issue.

Anyone else have similar issues with the fan running constantly? Any suggestions on how to fix or, at least, mitigate the problem?

FYI- I always use the laptop on a flat, hard surface (desk or wooden lap-desk) to allow proper heat dissipation. I have also tried elevating the back of the system by 1/2-inch or so to improve airflow- NADA!

Dell Latitude E6440 :: Fan Runs Constantly

Mar 5, 2014

I just got a new Latitude E6440. Overall I love the system, but when it is docked / on AC power, I have noticed that I can almost constantly hear the fan. Right now my CPU is only at 6% but I can hear the fan running. Is that just normal behavior with this system? Does it just have a louder fan that runs more often? I just upgraded from an E6410 and I don't recall ever hearing the fan. 

I am running Windows 8.1 Pro, and it is a brand-new install. I ran diagnostics and did not find any issues.

Dell Inspiron N7010 :: Cooling Fan Runs Constantly

Feb 23, 2011

I just bought a N7010 and the cooling fan runs constantly.  It keeps the laptop cool, but I don't think it is supposed to run constantly.  Is this a firmware upgrade or something else?

Acer :: Aspire 5738G Heating

Jan 13, 2010

I bought an acer aspire 5738G a couple of days ago with windows 7 x64 installed ,catalyst 9.9. When playing any game or using any 3D demanding application both my GPU temp. jumps up to 85-95 degrees C, and the CPU to 75-85 degrees C. according to GPU-Z my fan speed is always at 30% no matter how hot the lappy gets. I also wanna mention I didn't OC or use any modded stuff yet.

My questions are:

-Are these normal temps since this is my first acer and my previous lappy which wasn't an acer with a Nvidia Geforce GO7900 never got past the 75 degrees barrier

- Is there something wrong with the fan or it is supposed to kick in only at critical heat point

Acer :: Inactive 4500MHD Inside The Aspire 5738G

Apr 28, 2010

I have bought the Aspire 5738G over half a year ago and it was just a couple of days back from now, when Everest showed me a hardware report about an integrated Intel 4500MHD onboard, which is inactive.

I couldn't find any info on this matter online, so I thought that with your help and my readiness to disassemble my laptop, we could figure out a way to make use of this integrated chip, which would result in serious power savings when running on battery.

I am thinking that maybe there is some place in the circuitry that was cut in order to disable the chip or something, or that it has no access to the LCD and HDMI ports.

Also, I downloaded a Service Manual for my model and I couldn't find my 5738G specification in it.

Acer Aspire 5738G :: Windows 7 Reinstall Post HD Replacement - Setup Could Not Configure OS

Jan 1, 2015

My original hard drive of Acer aspire 5738G crashed and I bought a new 1 TB WD hard drive. I tried to reinstall Windows 7 from recovery disk. All data copy and system restoration (from 3 restoration disks) completed successfully. But after the auto reboot, during “Setup is applying system settings” stage I encountered error message “Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run this computer’s hardware”. I tried reinstalling the OS multiple times but every time I am getting the same error. Before replacing my hard drive, I was using Windows 7 Home Premium OEM version and now I was trying to restore the same in my system.

Acer :: New Aspire 3680: Fan Running Constantly

Oct 22, 2007

I just bought this new acer 3680 1 month ago because i needed a laptop for my studying. basicly all i need it for is to take notes from classes, and surf the web (youtube etc).
ok so basicly the first impression with preinstalled vista was horrible. incredible lag... 3 seconds delay at all times when browsing the web. and completely unable to playback any form of media with any other windows open without the sound lagging like crazy... all that kind of stuff

but the main problem seems to be the fan. It runs at high speed (producing as much noise as my desktop computer). The fan turns on aprroximately 4 minutes after you turn on your computer, or immediately after you open an application.. and it just keeps on running untill you turn off your computer... It is so annoying that i have trouble bringing the computer to class (which is where i really need it!) because i feel embarrased about the noise, and frankly i think this is an annoyance to the other students aswell. Is this a common problem with 3680? No one of the other students pc's fans run when they just use basic applications like word, or internet explorer, and they certainly dont do it when simply idling on the desktop.

furthermore it needs to be said that i have messed around with vista alot, and tweaked it in every possible way to remove pressure of the cpu.. and ofc removed all antivirus programs etc. Furthermore i tried installing XP, and guess what.... it took 5 mins of idling on the desktop in the brand newly installed xp for the fan to start again!!! so i conclude that the problem is not caused by vista overloading the cpu!. Does anyone else have this problem with their aspire 3680? maybe im just overly sensitive about the noise, but really it isnt supposed to run at all times.

Acer :: Aspire 2000 CL32 Resetting Constantly

Jul 17, 2008

notebook- Acer Aspire 2000 series CL32

problem- resetting itself constantly!

Explanation- Basically, one day after normal operation of my computer, I turned it off properly. The next time i went to turn it on, it comes up with the normal BLUE screen which has "acer aspire" on it. Down the bottom it says f2 to boot or something and f12 to enter setup menu.

If i do not press anything, it goes to a black screen and attempts to locate a boot cd. After it does not find one, it goes black, then up comes the BLUE screen which says "acer aspire" on it. If i do not press anything or touch anything, this process will keep going and going until i turn it off by holding down the on/off power button.

Resolution / what i have attempted to do-I CAN enter setup menu, by pressing f12 on the blue acer aspire screen. Once i am in the setup menu, i attempt to exit. I have attempted to exit the setup menu in all way, incl. disgarding changes, saving changes etc etc.
Each time i try to exit the menu a different way, It just goes to a black screen for a few moments, then repeats the process of going back to the blue acer aspire screen.
I have attempted to insert a boot cd. So after the blue screen, it goes to the black screen and attempts to find the boot cd. After locating it, it verifies it, says something like "found in drive C" or something similar, then it goes back to the same process.

Question- How the hell can I use my computer again?

Further note- 80% of my data has been saved on an external hard disk so rebooting or any other process is fine by me, I just want to be able to use my computer again.
Before attempting all the above processes, I disconnected everything from my computer e.g. all usb devices. I have tried it on batteries and with the power cable.

Premiere software. I'm not sure whether the crashes and problems are due to the laptop or the software. I purchased this new Acer laptop because from the reviews and specs I was confident it could handle PE13. I've had nothing but problems using the program though. Not sure if it's the laptop, the program, my own limited knowledge, or a combination.
There are some issues I'm having:

Acer :: 5738G Bottom Vent Built Closed

May 5, 2010

I bought my Acer Aspire 5738G laptop last november and this month I experienced for the first time my laptop shutting down by itself while playing cs-source.

The laptop is quite hot and upon searching the net found out that it's most likely due to overheating.

My question is about the ventilation at the bottom of 5738G.

Is it supposedly closed? No holes/slots? Cause I think it's the cause of overheating.

The system doesn't have a way to take-in air

It's like it was designed to be a bottom vent for air intake but then forgot to make holes in it.

I also searched for it's manual and confirmed that it is a ventilation slot.

It even says there "do not cover or obstruct the opening of the fan".

(I've got a screen shot attached. I'm talking about part 6. That part of my laptop doesn't have holes/slots but clearly there should be according to the manual.

Acer :: Fan Starts And Stops Constantly

Jan 6, 2009

Model: Acer Aspire 4720-4538

The CPU fan is totally off when the CPU temp is under 55C (according to Everest). Once it's over 55C, it goes onto its low setting. Somewhere higher up, it goes to its high setting.

The problem: Even just browsing the web and doing light desktop work (IM, Explorer, Word), the CPU temp creeps up to 55C pretty easily. Once it does, the fan shoots on, but it only takes about 3 seconds to get to below 55C, so it shuts off again. Without the fan, the temp goes up past 55C again, and the cycle restarts.

The result is an on-off-on-off-on-off fan that turns on or stays off for only about 2-5 seconds at a time. REALLY annoying, esspecially in an otherwise quiet library environment. I can see people looking over at me with a "what the f is wrong with your computer" look.

I've updated the BIOS to its latest as of this date (Jan 06 2009) on the Acer site (3810), that didn't help any.

I've read (on this site) that Acer uses something propertiary to control their fan, causing normal fan control software to not work on Acer's.

Does anybody know of any software that will let me control the speed of the fan? I tried the fan control software for the Acer Aspire One, which didn't seem to work.
