Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Turns off and doesn't complete restore to factory default

\015 My laptop freezes after certain time, lately it was maybe about 30mins or so, that I have to manually turn off and turn on back.\015\012\015\012To overcome the problem, I decided to restore to factory default setting - it reboots as per normal procedure and starts to prepare to do the restoring. Only after couple of minutes of the process, my laptop suddently switches off automatically. The light indicater to say that the battery is connected is also switched off - yes I had the power attached. Lucky I have copies of the restoring data on CDs, however I tried to use it and still the same thing happens, the computer just switches off after few minutes. Do you think this is a hardware or battery issue?\015

Answers :

Actually it sounds like a heat issue. Is the bottom of the laptop getting hot? If so....

\015\012Using an air compressor (be carefull you do not need 150 psi) or a can of compressed air blow out all of the vents. Laptops have heatsinks that are so small it does not take much to plug them up.
\015\012
\015\012You can also prop it up on something or get one of the fans to set it on and see if that does any good.
