Unhappy Acer 5715z fan problem

Hi im hoping someone can help me, my fan will work fine for about 2 hours it will kick on and off as needed but after the aprox 2 hours it will stay off even if the cpu hits 80 degrees celcius. I have xp on this laptop not vista so my drivers are not exacly the right ones, im guessing that could be the problem. I installed the epower management and that helped for about a day and tried reinstalling it when it stoped working. The only way to get the fans to go back on is to restart windows why that helps i dont know. if you have any questions ask away.

One of the many things one must consider before downgrading OS on a
notebook. Might be SOL and need to reinstall Vista or just live with a
periodic restart.

ocationaly i do get a whine but never checked where it was from and it only happens when my screen is flashing quickly like say during a game or movie.
and im not quite sure what u ment by this "And about e-powering technology, I haven't got any CD! Have you?" if your talking about a driver cd you can just got to the acer euro site and download the drivers, it has to be acer euro cause the panam site dose not have the 5715z model listed

Your Acer is equipped with a hidden disk partition that contains all you
need to restore the system to factory settings. This is accessed by a CD
which a utility program included will make for you. Be sure to locate the
program and make the CD. Then you can always get back to the start condition
of your system.

Acer prefaces all their utilities, it seems, with e- Try the help files for
details.

Good luck

It seem logical that you should roll back the last update, and continue one
by one till the touch pad works again.

Then reinstall all but the offending update.

Or, you could look to see which updates were actually drivers for your
hardware, and roll those back. Never get hardware updates from Vista
updates - go to the manufacturer of the computer or hardware and download
the latest versions there.

Finally, you could consider simply looking on the MFG website for the
drivers for your system, and download the driver for the touchpad and
install it.

The help files will get to to the update roll back, and a search of the MFG
site will get your drivers.

Then, set Vista update to only tell you they are available. Do not let Vista
update on it's own. Then look at the list that is offered, and do NOT
install any hardware updates from Vista. Check the website for the device,
and get it there.

Good luck.
