One of my flock is bringing his Acer Laptop to me tomorrow with the avounve complain.
I think of possible cuases- like overheading through blo9cked fan
Buut he is saying that he has heard it is due to a defective batch of a particular model.
I have had the machine over the weekend, and the first thing was to carry out a restore as far back as possible- this prompted the machine to go to the inbuilt recovery mode - So guess some thing picked up.
Then I gave it a good CC'ing.
Than got it doing all sorts for prolonged periods and it behaved perfectly.
I returned it to the owner- and it was apparent that he used it only for E-mail -[Hot mails= and not much else.
So I asked him to go about composing and sending an E-mail.
Sure enough the machine shut down after about 3 lines of text.
Was he inadvertently hitting a 'wrong key I wondered?
So this time he did it again and I watched his fingers and hands= no problem there
but the machine shut down,
So I tried and the machine shut down
So this problem appears to only occur when composing mail on a web mail account .no E-mail client involved..
Running a search on the model number it seems there has been some chat on serious forums about the same issue.
But no answres except one wag talking about a duff chip and how to change it.- Oh Yes"
As my man has owned the machine for 3 years or so and he has sent it away previously with the machine being returned 'As fault' free'
I an wondering if he he has another recourse with the vendor?
