Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 240 Notebook ?

I have a travelmate 240 which as now burnt out two cpu's . the fan stops running after 6 seconds does this mean its the fan at fault or the motherboard thanks ****


Answers :

The problem is probably with the motherboard. it may be passing too much power to the fan thus causing the fan motor to burn out. the cpu burn out is usually a result of cpu not cooling properly, either because the fan is not working or the white gel between the heat sink and cpu is finished.
