Having problems with your Acer PC Laptops ?

Acer Aspire and on start up it keeps shutting down?

Answers :

\015\012Its over heating as the the filter on the fan underneath is blocked, it needs to be opened up and clean out.
\015\012Even though its called a laptop they put the fan on the botton where you have it rested on your knee, also don't put on quilts, duvets, carpet etc....it needs to go on a flat solid surface with the back elevated.
\015\012If you smoke, the fan filters will also clog up faster, if you don't please ignore.
\015\012If you up for doing it yourself, I can tell you how...!
\015\012If not, get an engineer to do it for you, 10 min job so make sure you don't get ripped off.
\015\012If it still doesn't stay on after the clean then i'm afraid you have a hardware fault, usually mainboard related.
