I have an acer aspire 5710 laptop that ive had for nearly 5 years now. Yesterday though, i tried turning it on and the fan suddenly stopped working after a few seconds. The laptop itself dies two to three seconds later after the fan stopped. I tried turning it on again but the same thing keeps happening.
I tried cleaning the fan and the vent with compresed air but nothing has changed. That's as much as im willing to do by myself because im afraid i might break it further. Im also planning ro send it to a repair shop soon. I would just like to know what might be my problem here, please? Thank you!
I havent changed, removed, or added any parts to my laptop in the time ive had it and apart from the cleaning i do on the fan every three months or so i really havent tampered with the other parts.
I tried plugging in the battery (i normally use it without) and noticed it starts up fine but whenever i try to go into the setup (pressing F2) this error message appears: "AC adapter is not acer adapter." Or something similar to that.
