Having problems with your Acer Extensa 4220-2148 Notebook ?

Light comes on, flickers once after 15 seconds then after 10 more seconds shuts off.


Answers :

Your laptop definitely needs repair. The power supply transformer is supposed to keep a constant voltage. If that voltage is not maintained, it will shut off. It may be the CPU overheating. If the heat sink also came loose then that would explain it as well.

If you feel like taking your laptop apart, see if the heat sink overtop of the CPU is dislodged. Also, check to see that there is thermal compound between the two. If there is and it's securely connected afterwards and you still have this problem, you'll need to take it in for repair.
Could be a loose or shorted wire connection on the motherboard to the power supply.

Or your power supply fan may be non-op and causing system overheating and the system to shut down.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
