ASPIRE L100 overheating issue

\015 I have one of this and having same problem of system shutting down by it self. What I found out is that with the cabinet open and the hard drive/CD drive cage support moved out from its place, with a FAN blowing air from the mother board, the system works fine.\015\012\015\012The overheat componnents I belive are related to onboard video processor. To save my money, I am thinking about of replacing the original hard driver with a laptop hard drive(2.5') and adapt a fan into the space left on the cage support.\015\012\015\012I am just affraid of installing the laptop hard drive, which is 5V in place of its original drive that seems to be 12V. Am I right on my concern? If not, could\302\240that work?\015

Answers :

This Acer L100 is overheating due to lack of cooling to the Motherboard Graphics chip and chipset chip. If you take the unit lid off and remove the hard disk drive you will see 2 heatsinks. One of them can be cooled with an additional heatsink, which I have fitted on mine and it no longer overheats and switches off.

\015\012I can olso help with Hard drive issue you have. 3.5" desktop hard drives and 2.5" laptop hard drives in the SATA format both have the same power and data cable fittings on the drive, this means they will both work the same and will not fry. If you read some articles on Desktop PC's, you will see many people fit 2.5" drives into their computers too.

\015\012I think the extra fan idea would be good too, as this small form factor pc has an AMD processor and gets mad hot any way. Hope this all helps.

Bought one of these for my daughter. The problem is definitely heat & some driver problems. I was having same problem. If your running vista make sure to upgrade to service pack 1 & install all updates. Next upgrade all hardware drivers to latest. When I first pulled cover off the ram was so hot I could not touch it. Had two 512mb sticks one was bad from heat I suspect. Bought two x 1gb. The fix for overheating is not hard nor expensive but does require some time. Let me know if interested. This thing runs like a champ now.
