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..

HP DV7-6c90us Lockups :: Laptop Shuts Down Randomly While Gaming

Aug 9, 2014

So recently my laptop started randomly shutting off while I was gaming, I assumed it was the graphics card so I tried to use the intel hd graphics and disable the amd hd graphics to see if that would solve the issue, however it still happened. One thing I noticed is that now when I disable that graphics card the resolution is odd and the letters won't be as clear, I'm guessing this means it may be a motherboard issue.I moved on to thinking it was overheating due a fan problem, I bought a new thermal module for it and the same thing still happens.

I did the reset procedure (removed the battery and ac, pressed the power button for 60secs) and it still happened. I tried with a new battery and charger, same still happens.Lately it doesn't happen just while gaming, it will randomly shut down and once it does, sometimes it will shut down again and again before it even boots up, after a while it may boot up or may shut down again.It's really random and I cannot find a pattern....

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.

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Reduced Performance In Gaming And Watching Streaming Videos

Jul 1, 2014

I have a Dell Inspiron N5110.  After two years, my laptop starts to have reduced performance in gaming and watching streaming videos. I did a factory reset. Everything seems fine. 

I did a test by installing Warcraft 3 which I played with no lag at all. After that, I started to install/ update the Graphic drivers, Windows updates and installed Starcraft 2.

Then I played Warcraft 3 to test the performance and it lags like for every 2 seconds in game. 

Please note that I test my system by playing WC3 after installing the following individual items:

Item 1: Graphics driver
Item 2: Windows updates
Item 3: Starcraft 2 

Please note that I did three (3) factory resets.

This means I install WC3 and played and there is no lags. When i do Item 1, WC3 lags. 

This means I install WC3 and played and there is no lags. When i do Item 2, WC3 lags. 

This means I install WC3 and played and there is no lags. When i do Item 3, WC3 lags. 

  Please note that I did a hardware diagnostic test and I pass all the tests. 

I also did played around with: 

1) Power Settings 
2) Nvidia Control Settings and used the my graphic card instead of integrated video card.

But I am still facing the lag. 

At the moment, I am using my laptop at the factory settings and not installing any drivers or updates.

Dell :: XPS1530 Shuts Down When Gaming

Feb 26, 2009

I have just bought a new game - dawn of war 2.

Approx 30 mins into the game the laptop just shuts down, no BSOD, just powers off. When i reboot it there is no system error saying it was a major crash or any warning telling me why.....

I have installed a heat program to record the heat on teh GPU and the CPU, at the point of crash the GPU is around 85 degrees C.

I have taken the back off the laptop and cleaned the Heatsink fan, it was pretty dusty.

Dell :: XPS M1530 CPU Idling At 67-70, GPU At 77-80, Shuts Down While Gaming

Jul 4, 2009

I've recently starting playing Civilization 4: Beyond the Sword again, and my computer (stats listed in my signature) has started to shut down, I'm presuming from overheating.

I downloaded CPUID hardware monitor and those are my web-surfing/idling temps. This bad boy can get very hot. I only just realized a few moments ago that my fan does not often speed up to max.

Unfortunately, I don't have the extended Dell warranty, and since I bought this in 2007,

Will I have to take it apply and reapply thermal paste?

What utility can I use to test the fan to ensure that it's working properly?

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).

Acer :: Viewing Angle Seems "off" On Aspire 7740

Apr 17, 2010

I just bought an Acer Aspire 7740-5691. I really like it a lot, but the screen appears a little "washed out". The problem is that the screen can only be pushed back to an angle of about 30 degrees. The unit is designed so the screen can't be pushed back any further than that. If I put something underneath the front of the laptop to tilt the whole unit back, the screen looks nice with good color saturation.

My previous laptop (also an Acer) had a screen that would go all the way down to 180 degrees so that the unit would be flat. It was possible to adjust the screen angle to suit anyone.

I don't want to return the unit (14 day return policy at Staples), but this is going to bother me too much if I keep it. I have tried to adjust the color controls, including the gamma, contrast, brightness, but the problem is the angle of the screen.

Are all of them going to be like this, or is this some type of manufacturing defect that might not exist in other units?

Acer :: 6920g Laptop Down Throttling When Gaming

Jun 3, 2009

I am experiencing a problem with my 6920g laptop throttling down when playing games when the heat increases eg. GTA IV.

I've already tried just using RM-Clock Utility and setting it for max performance but yet it still clocks down with heat increase.

Ive seen an excellent guide on here for lowering the voltage of my laptop so would this help with gaming (as well as the general running of the laptop)

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 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?

Acer :: Aspire 7520 Gaming

Mar 15, 2008

I think it has something to do with my CPU getting really fast 100%

I bought a Acer Aspire 7520 for using it on college. It came with Vista Home Premium and I was planning to put XP asap on it. But because everything went pretty smoothly I did not saw a reason to do it inmediatly. So I could play games like Half-life 2, Counter-strike source, and Team Fortress 2 perfectly fine. But after some time I got annoyed like hell by Vista, and by downloading a crack I accidently installed a virus so everything got even worse. So I thought, okay lets install XP inmediatly! After I formatted my hard-drive I installed it with Service pack 2, and it all went great.

Well that's what I thought at the first few seconds. Because after having installed all the drivers I started Team Fortress 2. And suddenly around every 10-20 seconds my ping went from a 30 to 90 or higher. And that ofcourse caused my fps to drop, so this made it impossible to play Team Fortress 2. And after trying allot different drivers I decided to go back to Vista, because the games I wanted to play ran great on it. So now I have Vista Home Premium installed with Service Pack 1 and the drivers from acer that are made to be used with Vista + SP1. But now I got the same ****ing problem, I had in XP. For some unknown reason my ping decides to raise randomly. And makes it again not possible to play a game online because my fps then drops from a nice 72 fps to 9 or lower.

I installed every driver that Acer released for my laptop that are compatible with Vista (32bit) + Service pack 1.

I just have no idea what causes this! I have a antivirus + firewall. And a special anti-spyware/malware/other crap that makes your laptop/pc slow...............

May 24, 2009

Im having a small gaming problem here. Im playing world of warcraft on my Aspire 6920g and it works perfectly smooth for like 5 minutes then starts performance decrease until its very bad. If I minimalize the game, for like, one minute and then maximize it back, it works perfectly smooth for some time again. I have no idea how to fix it. It probably isnt overheating as it occurs after I launch my lappy and then the game(the laptop is cold).

Acer Aspire 5742g :: Overheating When Playing Games - Instantly Shuts Down

I have some problems with my 3 and an half year old laptop. When I play games on it, it get so warm that it instantly shuts down. Normally it's around 100 degrees but it sometimes goes up to 103 - 104. I also have an extra cooler, 200 x 200 x 20mm, 850 RPM which doesn't seem to work that much.  My computer usually turns off 2 -3 times a day and that is really annoying and I don't want to damage my computer.....

If the hdd is worth upgrading do I go for internal or external? and what size ?

how to make it run better with Aero?

My Laptop's Specs Are
Brand: Acer Extensa 4220
CPU: Intel Celeron CPU 560 - 2.13GHz
RAM: 1GB DDR2

HP Envy 17 Display :: IPhone Videos Will Not Play On Laptop

Oct 25, 2013

i have recently purchased and HP Envy 17 laptop and have been trying to backup all of my iphone 5s photos and videos onto thelaptop however everytime i try to play videos either through the photos folder or the photos library app nothing works.In the photo app the app just freezes and crashes and in the photos documents folder media player just comes up not responding. This hapens with the vast majority of my videos i have seen that other people have had the same issure and i have installed the VLC video app as suggested and still nothing works.

there has been an IOS update since i started taking videos however this makes no diffeence as the handful of videos that do work are from both before and after the update so it can not be an issue with my phone and the videos i have taken in the last few days dont work.
