|Okay, my laptop is being a pain in the butt. It's an Acer Travelmate C310, and I know that the fan is either working really badly or, most likely, broken. I've got a fan ordered, and it'll be replaced within several days hopefully, but I'm not sure if my problem pertains just to the fan problem.|
Whenever I try to turn on the power to my laptop, it just won't turn on. Normally, my computer will get really hot, and I'll unplug it and it'll cool down a bit, and then I have to plug it in 2.5 hours later when the battery's dying (I know, reallly bad battery), and then I'll just turn it off as soon as I can to keep it from just automatically turning off (which it does quite often). But these last few days, it's been worse. And what's weird is, as I try to turn it back on, sometime it won't turn on. Since last night, I've completely shut it down, opened it up, tried to clean out the fan a little, tinkered around with the hard drive, removing it and putting it back in, and the problem's just not fixing itself. (Before I opened it up), it just wouldn't turn on at all, no matter how hard I tried. Do you think that this will be solved as I get a new fan, or does this sound like a completely seperate problem - and if so, any suggestions on how to fix it?
Please help, I'm going crazy without my laptop. :-P
