Help! My laptop is turning off and going slow!!!

Okay so a little while ago I noticed my laptop/fan started vibrating and everything started to go slow but I refreshed/restored my computer and everything seemed to be going better. I tried playing League earlier today and my laptop randomly shut down and I noticed that the fan area was really hot and when I was turning my computer back on I was watching the fan and it didn't look like it was moving. It's now moving but I'm super scared to do anything for fear I might completely demolish my laptop. I need some program or something that will tell me what my fans or doing or whatever. (Obviously I kind of have no clue what I'm talking about but yeah.) If anyone can help me, it would be appreciated. Mind you, I've had my computer for like 9ish months and I don't beat on it or anything. This is my laptop: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009JXK1WQ/ref=oh_details_o07_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If you wanna help, I'll try to answer questions you might have about it but I'm not super good with computers or anything so yeah.
Please and thank you!

Update everything.  Bios, drivers, OS, etc...  Everything.  Also, clean the fan as best as possible (it's a laptop so this may get tricky).  If problem persists, call tech support for possible hardware problems of your model.

http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ - Monitors processor temperatures

http://www.evga.com/precision/ - Monitor/change fan speed along with other features.


I use both of these, they're quite useful.


You should try cleaning out your fans. If you don't want to take it apart then you can buy compressed air and clean them out that way. It's good to do it fairly often as dust compiles rather quickly. Replacing the thermal paste might help too, although you shouldn't have to since your laptop isn't even a year old.

 Also, once you download these programs you should monitor the temperatures while idle, and while gaming, and post them here. Although its a 'gaming laptop' it's not truly optimized for gaming like with most laptops, so you might have to lower your settings.


Edit: Also if your temperatures are still high after that, you should consider buying something like http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-NotePal-Cooling-R9-NBC-NPX3-GP/dp/B0079T2KHG/ref=lp_2243862011_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1379715761&sr=1-2


I used a cooling pad on my shitty HP laptop and it lasted a few more months before I finally had to cave and buy a new computer.

If it's shutting off like that, it's because of an overheating issue. Like Monk and Fetus suggested, use compressed air to get rid of the dust. That's typically the case with laptops and I don't see why your hardware should be failing 9 months in. Keep an eye on the temperatures and invest in a cooling pad if it's not a hardware issue.

Also, you and I have pretty similar laptops except my Acer is a few specs higher. That's pretty cool.

Yeah I've done basically everything that can be done or that ya'll mentioned or suggested. Thanks for your help but I'm probably going to just send it into Acer to have it fixed. Kind of tired of dealing with it at this point.

Compressed air, but might as well send it in if you can.

I wouldn't bother much with it. At 9 months it is under warranty. Cleaning the fans is probably the answer. A good sign is if you can hear it vibrating because it is off balance.

Laptop coolers are a great investment for laptops.

I've noticed that in the last few years laptops are made so cheap and badly that they tend to overheat regularly. I can only imagine that it could be a purposeful way to build in time to fail.
