Hiding behind a 16 year old mentally ill Brain-Washed child, then getting upset that she
personally has to take shots that should be aimed at you, is not bravery on your part.

...Its Cowardly...

This board never seemed to get any action so I stopped looking in on it. I apologize for that. Seems I missed two questions. I'm not sure on how much help I as one person could have offered, but the rest of the board could have joined in too.
 
So, if you have a Problem, then please write it down in this board area, then let us know in top (Current Events) board.
 
You know how men like to fix things... :- )

I've got an Acer 4736 laptop that shuts down by itself a lot of times in a day. I reckon it's because of heat or something, so I bought a cooling fan and it worked for a while. It doesn't shut down as often, but it still didn't solve the problem.

I did Laptop repair for Dell and am certified on all thier laptops, and your Acer is just another Laptop as far as I'm concerned.

If your problem is heat, and thats what it sounds like since an external cooling fan seemed to help for a while, then you likely have a large dust buildup deep inside your laptop. Most likely around your internal cooling fan and its heatsink.   After a while that dust actually builds up inside until it looks like a small horse blanket.
 
The only way to insure you clean it properly is to take the top cover and keypad off for an internal inspection. However, as a short term fix, you may want to blow compressed air into the cooling fan vent, (and I don't mean from an air can, an air can won't do anything), or even put a strong vaccum up to those vents to try to suck some of it out of there. Just keep the vaccuum away from your keyboard, else they WILL pop off.
 
I've never worked on an Acer, but usually taking the top of the laptop apart is rather simple. Usually there a top bezel in front of the keypad with a small notch, that pops off with a tiny screw driver, or a few tiny screws in the back that hold the top on. The keypad either just snaps out or has two tiny scews itself.
 
But, I'm not telling you to take it apart, only that I would, and it would be easy to do. if you take it apart, you do so on your own ... :- )
