I have an Acer Aspire 1660 laptop with 3.4GHz, 2Gb Ram and 60Gb 7,200rpm
hard disk in conjunction with the Edirol FA-101.
On the whole this system works
very well, fast and powerful, however, sometimes it just randomly turns itself off.
There's never any warning, no blue screens, no busy hard drive noises, it just suddenly
goes completely dead.
As far as I'm aware there arn't any regular processes or
jobs I'm undertaking when this happens; the majority may occur during high processor load
sessions, and when it does die it often feels very hot at the back.
anybody have any ideas what the cause could be here? could it be an overheating issue? As
I say it does feel hot when it dies, but then it's hot most of the time, and the fans
nearly always on...it's quite noisy really!
