Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
My laptop switched off
\015 My laptop (acer aspire 5715z) keeps closing down with out warning, i have run the battery down fully, done a system restore etc also i have taken it into the shop form which i bought it (brighthouse) Although they are not very helpful and will not seem to do anything about the problem, any ideas of what it could be, It is still under the 12 month gaurentee.I can not be with out the laptop for long due to using it for work and studies\015
Overheating. This is really simple to fix if it is what I think it is. Take a phillips head screwdriver, unscrew the back panel with the grate on it, unscrew the fan, then clean out the metal thing. If there was a lot of dust there, that's the reason why it was overheating. If not, then I don't know what to tell you.
I had exactly the same problem with exactly the same laptop. I called acer warranty support on 0870 853 1000 and they repaired it within 7 days. You have to provide proof of purchase (I had the store I bought it from post me an invoice and I emailed a scan of that to them). It's still fixed and I've had it back for around three weeks now.
Hope that helps.

Wireless Switch My laptop is a Presario2100 (not a 2100T). I have had it for just over three years. Naturally, 2 months after the warranty ran out, something stopped working on my computer. My wireless switch will not turn on. It probably isn't a card problem, because it will not even turn on enough to tell me whether or not it senses wireless networks. Instead, the switch itself seems to be broken because I push the button on the front right corner, and absolutely nothing happens. Is ther
