I have an acer laptop with windows XP.Recently it has start turning its self off or sometimes restarting for no apparent reason. It was doing it about once or twice a week but not has started to do it more often.Anyone got any ideas as to what is wrong and how to fix?Cheers Michael H
Overheating is most likely cause. Get a vacuum cleaner on the grills and make sure all the dust / grime is removed from the vents.
I tried to clean it...seemed pretty dust free but i cleaned it anyway...also used a heardrier!problems still occurs....I have now taken out the battery and running off the power cable to see if this helps...maybe replace the batteryAnyone else have any thoughts on a solution to this problem?
Removing the battery did not help...so i dont think the battery is at fault...laptop still switches itself off... have visited the Acer website and am considering updating the bios, but I dont know enough about this to know if that will make any difference? any help would be appreciated!does the lack of posts on this mean no one has any ideas?cheersMike
A BIOS flash is last resort as a failure during flash will result in a scrap machine.try testing the memoryMemory Test MemTest - click hereTutorial: How to use Memtest - click hereWindows Memory Test - click here
Disable auto restart click here and then when it reboots you should be able to see what caused the shut down when you reboot.
