Having problems with your Acer Aspire E380-UD420A (ASE380-UD420A) PC Desktop ?

My pc turns itself off as soon as I switch it on, the fan seems to make a loud noise, if I leave it for a while, then switch it back on, it does a disk check but eventually turns itself off again. Could it be something to do with the fan? I do know that it will not download the service pack 1 when I try and do the updates, this is of course when I do eventually get it to work. My pc is acer aspire e380, hope you can help


Answers :

Well, you got to be little bit techie to to resolve this. There could be several issues that cause this problem. It can be either with the Motherboard, Memory or any PCI cards installed. So we will have to do it step by step, (Make sure, your PC is turned off when you are changing the hardware)\012
\012Step 1: Memory check\012
\012In this step, try to remove your memory chip and insert it in an another slot and reboot the machine. see what happens? If you have dual memory module, i would recommend placing one after another that way, you can confirm, if there is a faulty memory.\012
\012Step 2: Motherboard check\012
\012If step 1 doesn't resolve your issue. Please remove any/ all memory module and start the PC. It should beep continuously. If this happens, that means *********** board is okay and problem may be with the Memory. However, before buying a new memory, go through step 3,\012
\012Step 3: Remove PCI Cards, if you have any and reboot the PC and see what happens..\012
\012Typically, such issues needs to be resolved by a techie, so you might want to go to a repair shop to get this done. But again, if you feel comfortable, you can do this steps or call Acer and find out what can be done...\012
\012thanks,
Hi
Which fan. If it's the power supply fan then the power supply needs to be replaced. It could be damaged due to a heat related issue. Most likely it's the CPU fan that is going bad. Once the fan stops then the CPU heat goes up dramatically, the CPU then shuts down because of the high heat. CPU may be damaged also. Get this machine to to a reputable repair person as soon as possible.

I am working on an HP Pavillion a1220n Desktop and I am getting different bootups each time.
