Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook ?

Heating and performance problems on my Aspire 5520

\015 Hello,\015\012\015\012I got my laptop about 6 months ago, and problems seem to become bigger and bigger. The CPU almost never stops making noise and the temperature is constantly at around 70, sometimes even at 95 degrees. Next to this, there's the problem that it runs very slow at times. Thinking that there might be a connection, I tried to lift it a little, so the fan has some more space, but it just doesn't work. I removed all spyware, malware, wiped the whole thing clean and reset it to default, nothing works.\015\012\015\012Has anyone got any idea on what's wrong here and how I can solve it?\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance,\015\012Raymond Hanekamp\015\012Groningen, Holland\015

We had the same problem with the same model. The problem is that the side openings in the fan assembly tend to get plugged with dust. Take the back cover off, and then take the few screws off the covering for the fan assembly. It'll likely be plugged with dust. Get a small brush (like for an electric razor), and just brush the dust off. That will solve the problem. or redo the paste on the cpu with some arctic silver

check the fan and h/sink are clear of dust
see if they have a full manual you can download on the acer site giving an exploded view of the laptop
\015\012OR IF YOU ARE NOT ANY IT PROFESSIONAL THEN BETTER CALL PROFESSIONAL TO DO IT.
Well you can clean it out using compressed air to free it from dust, also you can buy a cooler to go underneathe it for under $20.00 it has two fans and this will help keep it cool.

My Dell OptiPlex GX 520 has frozen. It runs Windows XP. Here in the UK, we have had a cold snap in what the papers are calling "The Coldest Day". Dunno if that's got anything to do with it. Anyway, I came down in the morning and the screen was off as if it had gone into sleep mode, but shaking the mouse or tapping the keyboard did not work. So, I tried turning it off and on again. The bootup screen came on, and the bar filled nearly up to the top, but then froze there. I left it for five minutes
