Does your Acer Aspire 5253 overheat during use? Acer Aspire 5253 laptops are susceptible to a range of problems that could cause them to overheat. Check the following causes to identify and solve the problem.
Cause 1: Too Many Programs Running
If your laptop is being overworked, it can overheat because the fans cannot cool the laptop quickly enough. Close all open programs and restart your laptop. Wait a few minutes for the laptop to cool down. If the noise of the fan decreases and eventually stops, it means that you had too many programs running.
If your laptop overheats and simply turns itself off without the fan turning on, see the following causes to solve the problem.
Cause 2: Improper Ventilation
If you do not think that your laptop was running too many programs, the overheating issue may be due to improper ventilation. To ensure proper ventilation, avoid using your laptop in bed or on a carpet. Never use pillows as padding, since they can block your laptop’s air vents. Always place your laptop on hard surfaces to allow air from the fans to properly ventilate.
Cause 3: Fan Not Functioning
A malfunctioning fan is often the most common cause of overheating. To check if your laptop’s fan is functioning properly, turn the laptop off and turn it over so that its underside is facing up. Then, turn the laptop back on. If you hear the fan whirring when the laptop turns on, the fan is working properly. If you do not hear the fan start to whirr, it means that the fan processor is not functioning. Use the Acer Aspire 5253 Fan Replacement Guide to access the laptop’s fan and view the issue.
The fan processor can become clogged and stop functioning due to a collection of dust. To clear out dust and debris, unplug all cables from your laptop and remove its plastic cover. Blow compressed air into the fan to remove the dust. Then, place the cover back on the computer and reconnect any necessary cables.
