Acer Aspire V3 551g-8454 :: Laptop Shuts Off And Won't Turn Back On

Dec 25, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire v3-551g-8454 laptop. Lately it has been shutting itself off after anywhere from 5 to 24 hours of it being turned on. In the past I could simply turn it back on and resume from there. Now, when I try to turn it back on, the power button just flashes a few times and the laptop doesn't turn on. The laptop doesn't feel overly hot anywhere on it's surface.

Acer Aspire V3-551G :: Fan Extremely Loud - Overheating When Run Games Or Ubuntu

Jan 19, 2015

I have the Acer Aspire V3-551G (specifically the V3-551G-8454 model) and since I got it the laptop has had some overheating issues when I run games or Ubuntu. My solution to that was just to stop running games and Ubuntu, and besides that it's worked pretty well besides Explorer deciding to crash randomly (it doesn't happen too often though).
However, I've had the laptop for a while now and and not too long ago I noticed the fan would rarely become extremely loud. As the weeks went by, the sound became more frequent, especially if I moved the laptop even just a little while it was on, so I stopped moving the laptop. But now, even with the laptop sitting still on a table, there is about a 40%-50% chance that it will have an extremely loud fan when I start it.
What's weird is that sometimes I noticed the fan is too quiet too. When it does this I assume that the fan is actually off which shouldn't be happening because the laptop gets super hot. Sometimes after a while of silence the loud noise come up too, which is nice because now the fan is on, but is also not good because of the volume of the noise.
I'm pretty sure problem is coming from the GPU (or whatever the big fan on the left underside of the laptop is). I also suspect the fan had actually been the culprit of the overheating (which consequently caused Explorer to crash sometimes).

Acer Aspire V3-771 :: Laptop Running Win 8 Shuts Off When Gaming Or Viewing Some Videos?

Sep 14, 2014

My Aspire V3-771 is a little over a year old now. I don't know much about computers, but i do enjoy several pc games, and watch a lot of streaming videos. when doing so my computer almost always shuts itself off, even while running games that could hardly be called graphic intensive. I'd thought it might be an overheating issue? but i don't think that's the case. 

I've also noticed that, within the task manager, the disk will often jump to 100%.
Again, for months after i bought the machine, it worked perfectly fine. many of the programs that it used to run, now cause it to shut down without warning.

Acer Aspire V15 Nitro :: Running Game And FPS Gradually Drop Until Laptop Shuts Down From Overheating

Mar 9, 2015

I've bought a new laptop 1 week ago, and it's running smooth with 1 exception: Everytime I shut the computer down or save energy, it magically forgets it has fans to cool cpu and graphics card. When i try to run a game it will gradually drop fps until it shuts down from overheating. I tried to fully discharge it and disconnect it from the battery to identify the hardware and then set it to standard in the bios, then it works. But the moment I shut down the computer it is the same thing over again. I don't want to do said process everytime I start my laptop..

Acer Aspire 7750G :: Windows 8.1 - Laptop Wake Up And Immediately Goes Back Into Sleep Mode

Dec 17, 2014

I have a acer aspire 7750 G with windows 8.1 
When I take the laptop out of a sleep mode it goes immediately back into sleep mode. I do get the screen to enter my password but it's only there for like 2 seconds. 

The second time I  take it out, it works fine. Just a bit annoying that I have to do it twice pretty much 95 % of the time.

Acer :: Laptop Shuts Down While Playing Games

May 3, 2009

I have an Aspire 1694wlmi with a 2GHz Pentium M, a Mobility Radeon x700 (256mb) and 1GB of ram. I run Win XP with SP3. I didn't do anything to the comp apart from removing its crappy built-in wlan adapter.

The issue is this: whenever I play any game (even as undemanding as UT99) the laptop just shuts down without warning. This even happens playing 8ballclub's billiards sim in window mode for instance.

The whole thing started happening occasionally a long time ago (with Rome Total War at first). Right now, it happens always and very very soon after starting the game (i.e. less than a minute).

I have noticed that the CPU usage jumps to 100% as soon as I launch the game and stays there until shutdown (but this is supposed to be normal, yes?). Also, I tried stopping all non-essential processes (of which there weren't that many to begin with) and the CPU usage is around 0-4% when idle.

I have also opened the lid and look for dust - none there (neither around the processor nor around the graphics adapter)

I tried updating the ATI drivers, but since the Radeon is included in all Acers, it won't let you update the drivers - and Acer doesn't provide updates either. I have installed the Catalyst Control Center...

People have associated such problems with viruses. I use Avast which finds no viruses (I'm installing Kaspersky next).

Dell Studio 1749 :: Shuts Down Randomly Without Warning And Then Won't Start Back Up

Oct 19, 2011

I'll be using the computer and all of the sudden it turns off, it doesn't log off or say it's shutting down, I mean it literally loses all power. Then I try to restart the computer and you can hear the machine start to come on but then it dies again. I've tried charging it, I took the battery out and put it back in, etc. I'm just not sure what the problem is. I've only had the laptop for 1 year and 3 months and a few weeks before the year warranty expired the computer started to say that the battery life was coming to an end and so Dell had to send me a replacement battery. I've tried leaving the computer alone for days at a time and still nothing and of course it's no longer under warranty so I can't even call Dell without getting charged.

Acer :: Aspire One ZG5 Shuts Off At Startup

Oct 5, 2009

Quick background:
My dad just returned from Afghanistan and is home for a few weeks before he heads back (by home I mean with my mother - i.e. I am not with them so I cannot get my hands on the computer).

He's been using his netbook (Acer Aspire One ZG5) while over there and brought it back with him. It's been working perfectly fine for the last 6 months while he was there, but today when he tried to turn it on to show some pictures to my mom it wouldn't.

The computer would start up fine and begin loading windows. Then it just dies - it just shuts itself off.

The next time, the computer gave them the option to turn it on in safe mode which they tried. Same problem.

They've tried several times and it won't start - it also fails at different times.

Sometimes it almost fully loads windows and other times it shuts off a lot sooner.

I made him open the BIOS which worked fine... for a few seconds and then randomly shut itself off again.

Acer :: How To Fully Back Up My Laptop C: Drive (1810TZ)

Mar 17, 2010

I am very happy with my new Acer 1810TZ. I have installed all my favourite software and set it up exactly how I want it. I split the drive in two, so I have a C drive with Windows 7 and all the software, and no data. All my data is on D: and that drive is not an issue, I have no trouble backing up my data.

I now want to do a reliable backup of the system that will cover two situations:

1. Drive C gets corrupted somehow. Unlikely but I want to be able to simply put back Windows and all the software as it is now.

2. Hard disk fails. I put in a new one and want to set up drive C exactly as it is now.

I use Acronis and I know with a desktop how to so this. I simply use Acronis to make a file containing the C drive, and store it on a big USB drive. If the worst happens I can use the Acronis boot disk and put drive C back.

But the Acer has a complication. The drive starts with a 12 GB recovery partition, followed by a 100MB partition. In my case 1 above, it is easy, I simply restore my backup over C: and all is OK.

But what about case 2, where I have a new drive. I don't really need the recovery partition, but I suspect that if I use the simplest method, and simply restore drive C: as the first partition, it may not work, i.e. not boot? (method A)

Should I make partition backups of the two hidden partitions and then restore those as well as C:? (method B)

Would either method work? Most importantly would the machine boot? What else should I be doing? I'm sure many people muct have tackled this since Acer machines seem to work this way? Please tell me what is the recommended solution? Are you using Acronis?

Acer Aspire 5741 :: Shuts Down After A Few Minutes

Nov 24, 2014

I have a problem with my laptop (Acer Aspire 5741G).It´s a couple of years old and the battery stopped working a year back and after that I need to use the power cable.Earlier the laptop got really hot sometimes and shut itself down.I have cleaned it inside (I took the laptop apart) and also changed to a SSD drive. 

After that it worked better for a while but now the same thing have happened again but there are some differences from earlier. IT´S WORSE. 

1. The laptop doesn´t get hot. It´s almost cold..... I downloaded a program to see the status of the computer and from it I could read from the sensor data that the temperature is between 30-40degC (CPU usage is as low as 0-4% if I just leave it). 
2. The fan starts directly when I start the computer and goes on 100% all the time (even if I don´t do anything). 
3. After 3-4 minutes the laptop shut itself down. Even if I go into the BIOS at start-up and just leave it. 
4. I have cleaned it again and everything but the same thing happens after I have mount it together again. 

What´s wrong? Can it be the power cable (AC adapter)? But why does the fan behave like this?

HP/Compaq :: DV6000- Lights Turn On For 2 Seconds, And It Shuts Right Off

Nov 11, 2009

I have a HP DV6000 Laptop. Im aware of the problems these models have. But this one I have not yet heard of. When I attempt to power it on, the lights turn on for 2 seconds, and it shuts right off. Its not like the Video card issue everyone speaks of. I have extensive technical background, and I have tried taking everything out, and trying each part one by one. I have tried swapping the power button ribbons, I have tried removing the bios battery. I guess im wondering if anyone else has ever been able to figure out whats going wrong with this setup? copuld it be a lack of contact between heat sync and CPU? please give me whatever input you can. I would like to not have to spring for a new Mobo. I can solder, and I am thinking of trying to heat the soldering points with a heat gun maybe. I dont know if thats the problem tho. and also, when the AC adaptor is plugged in, the blue LED surrounding it is on.

I also tried all this (of course)

1. Remove battery.
2. Remove AC power.
3. Remove and reseat your RAM modules.
4. Replace your RAM modules.
5. Hold down your power button for 1 minute.
6. Replace your AC power (not battery) and turn on
remove the small bios cmos battery for 15min and then put it back in
