Help, please! ... Overheating laptop v3-551-8883 Aspire?

Hi, in Christmas mental disabled sister, I bought a laptop Aspire v3-551-8883. She loves him and he allows her to stay in touch with the people and face. She called me last week because she had problems with her. I am far from being an assistant tech but I can usually work my way through the computer problems without too much trouble.

The computer seems to be...

(1) bogged down with malware or a virus

(2) overheating and shutdown

It was not easy with it overheating and turn it off, but I managed to erase the hard drive and do a fresh install of windows 8 (which it came installed with). According to me, which would have eliminated most of the malware and viruses.

Initially I thought that the overheating could be due to the malware or virus, but even after I reformatted it maintains power off after 15-20 minutes.

I've seen several videos and messages on the problems of fans and I think that's probably the fan. I can see the rotation of the fan when the computer is turned on but it nevers seems to go fast enough to cool the machine (and the 'exit air' area move same tissue, when placed in front of him).

SpeedFan will not identify the fan if this program does not help.

The laptop is less than 1 year - would it still under warranty? (I did not buy a good scope)

I don't want to make a history of sobbing, but my sister was in tears when I told her that I couldn't still attached to his computer.

Can someone please offer me some advice or assistance?

Thank you

  • Help, please! Aspire E5-511-P4LN takes at least 30 minutes for it to start after stop down

    Help, please!  I have an Acer Aspire E 15 (E5-511-P4LN) that I bought online at HSN last September, 2014.  I'm not really sure what happened past.  On the morning of April 10, 2015, I had downloaded the Wakfu game in my computer.  I played the game for two hours, then turned off my laptop around 14:30.  The same day in the night, about 9:30 pm, I started my laptop, but the monitor was blocked to the Acer Logo at least a half hour!  I thought that it must have the game I've downloaded so before going to bed I hibernated just my computer.  When I woke up the next day, it took my computer at least 15 minutes at the start of Hibernation!  Once he showed me the splash screen, there is no problem with the computer's performance.  in any case, I uninstalled Wakfu of my computer when I finally got in my computer.  I even downloaded CCleaner and used clean the registry.  However, today, April 12, 2015, when I started my computer, he remained on the Acer Logo for at least thirty minutes before taking me to the splash screen!  It's just too.  I don't know what else to do.

    strange question.

    the 'fastest' solution will involve a backup of your data and a reinstall of windows.

    If you don't mind not to do, turn off your laptop and turn it on by pressing ALT + F10 to launch Acer erecovery process.

  • New portable printer HP2540/301 Acer Aspire 1 has no disk drive and a silly user. Help, please...

    I bought myself a nice 5240 again 301 printer all-in-on Wednesday.

    Since then, I have made that fight with him since then.

    My laptop is an Acer Aspire one, one of the smallest, which unfortunately doesn't have a hard drive in it. My first thought went to download drivers. The web page did not work and I realized then, that, without the user manual (which I think is on the disc), I'm totally lost.

    If someone could please help me.

    I made an impression that says.

    Check your network printer name HP (SSID) corresponds exactly to your router (SSID) wireless network name.

    If they do not exactly match, run set up the printer software to set up your HP printer wireless.

    I guess that's the software on the drive. Is it possible to download the software online?

    Any help would be accepted with gratitude that I have no idea what I'm doing atm. I just starting to learn how to properly use Windows 8 atm, so far my computer all skills hass been how to open a browser and an office.

    Thank you.

    I would add also, I downloaded the application too, but which does not recognize that there is a printer at all.

    Hi, here is the link for the driver.

  • Headset microphone does not work on Aspire E14. Help please?

    I bought a laptop Aspire e14 and a headphone (GE Voip stereo headset 98974), but the headset microphone is not detected by my laptop.  I tried other headphones, but the microphone still does not work. I updated the driver but it still does not work.

    Device Manager does not detect the other microphone.

    Helmet has a single 4-pin socket.

    Help, please.

    Thank you



    I managed to solve the problem!

    In case you are experiencing the same, this could work:

    1. pull upward the TASK MANAGER. Under the "Startup" tab, check if the Realtek HD Audio Manager is disabled. If so, right-click on it and then click on 'enable '.

    2. search for "Realtek HD Audio Manager" and click on it.

    3. on the Microphone tab, check that the microphone is not on mute and click the icon of the folder on the right side

    4. Once you click on the folder on the right side, a pop up as will appear and you will need to make sure that the box is checked as the image below:

    5. now, plug your headset device and you should see a pop-up message like so... and check on the option button "HEADPHONES".

    Now you can test the microphone using sound recorder or Skype.

    It worked for me and I felt so helpless.

    I even tried Acer support cat and the person has not yet asked troubleshooting and just told me to bring the product to a service centre

    I hope this helps!

    Thank you


  • laptop HP Clubhouse 15: help please!

    Fail short, DST = disk hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced. If you are still in warranty HP will send a replacement. If this is not the case, a laptop SATA hard detail can be used. Just be sure to get a quality at least equal the original in order to use recovery disks. It may be big, but not small ability more. For example if you have a 500 GB hard drive you can use a 750 GB hard drive, but not a 320 GB hard drive.

    How to activate Audio devices hidden in Vista and Windows 7

    Connect one microphone, music player or other audio device to your computer (you want to be sure
    the mic input is enabled)


    Pilots may also need to be updated:

    Control Panel - device - SOUNDS - look for HD Audio Manager - Mine said RealTek high definition
    Audio (this is an example and you can have an other name/maker).

    Make sure you write down the description and model double click top - tab drivers - write version. Now
    Click on update drivers who cannot do anything like MS is far behind the certification of drivers. Then RIGHT
    CLICK above and UNINSTALL - REBOOT - this will rebuild the driver stack.

    If your driver shows 06 you have the default windows and part of the question.

    Go to the system manufacturer's website and get the latest Audio/Sound drivers - download - SAVE - go to the place where you
    Put them - right click on Reboot - RUN AS ADMIN -.

    Check the Version tab of the driver in the Device Manager as the restoration of the sound card drivers often
    and then install the latest version. Restart and check after each test, not
    rare to have to run the pilot of 1 to 4 times or more. Just the version make sure you
    installed shows upward on the tab of the driver.

    Then navigate to the site of the manufacturer of the device and search for the drivers more recent and repeat the installation procedure.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    After the updated driver.

    Click with the right button on the speaker near clock - recorders - right click in the box - check see the

    Also in the search for some Audio Manager Panel (perhaps named after the manufacturer of the sound driver). Mine
