Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?

Acer 3680 has trouble powering down and up

\015 I have searched high and low for an answer and I can't seem to find one and usually I can troubleshoot these problems myself, but this one has me puzzled. first off I should mention that the lid switch went out some time ago, so I don't rely on that. Ok here's the problem, most of the time I can't just push the power button and power down when the system hangs, I have had to unplug the power and remove the battery to get it to power down, then when I go to power up it won't start at least not right away for months I have thought that the power button is faulty but just the the other day, I reset my power settings and then it was working just fine like it should, but then the other day the core temperature was high and there was some overheating and it started again, I don't know if there is a connection with that. So I really don't know what is causing this and would like to figure it out before it gets much worse.Thanks\015

Answers :

I think you should check fan for dust and clean out the cpu area, maby even a re-applacation of heat sink silicone could assist you in your core temputure problems.

\015\012You may want to clean out some programs running in the background, and make sure that youre not infected with a virus, that is over working your machine.

\015\012Another item to check is in the bios looking for automatic fan control settings.

The dc power plugin is not working. I have had the pink acer aspire one mini laptop since christmas 2008. I've never had trouble with it before. Two weeks ago I noticed that sometimes when I plugged in the power cord, the laptop did not recognize it was plugged in. The light would not come on showing it was on the main power supply and it would not charge the battery. It eventually would work when I retried plugging it in a few times, but now, it won't work at all.
