My Acer Aspire One powers off after about 1 minute during booting XP. Sometimes it will boot up fully but never stays on longer than about 5 mins. Suspect heat/fan issue. The fan kicks in for about 5 seconds at the start of the booting up but then will not come onagain at-all. Is it a fan issue or maybe a faulty cpu or motherboard.
Thanks for your reply. The problem is that the computer usually shuts off before fully booting up. It is dififcult to install any software. I have heard that flashing the bios can cure this. Any thoughts?
