    I figured out how to over and downclock my card using RBE and winflash. I downclocked it again to 400mhz, but then tried amd tools to run it at 500mhz. I used GPU-Z to monitor my temps, and my game shut froze and I shut down my pc at a temp of 74 celcius, so its not an overheating problem afterall.


    Any idea what might be causing these shutdowns? I'm going to try to play at a simple 400 mhz after this post, and hope it won't shut down again (don't understand why it would, since its not the heat).

    edit: Ok so even at standard clocks (400mhz) my games freez, regardles of which resolution I use. I triend installing the drivers mxm-upgrade.com recommended but that didnt help.
    I think I just have a fawlty gpu. Everytime my gpu reaches 74-75 celcius my games freez :(

    In bios you can raise shutdown temperature to avoid the trouble you have...
    For my card critical temp is set to 105C and the hottest my card went was 97... But average is 75-80C when playing PES 2010...At idle temp is 48-55...

    this shutdown temperature is useless because in my gpu bios is set to 105 that is the basic i think and my gpu was 110 and didnot shut down it! but did you try another driver?

    The guy in this vid speaks about artifacts and freezing laptop, after that the laptop shut down.

    Maybe it helps

    I'm not sure if it shuts down due to heat, since I just tried playing Empire TW and it shut down at 68 celcius -_-'
    I also have no idea how to alter the shutdown temps in my BIOS.

    Hi all,
    I have an Aspire 5739G. It originally had a GeForce 130m. I have upgraded to a Radeon 4650 DDR2.

    Ok, I have a problem though. Does anybody know where to buy a replacement fan for a 5739G? Mine has started to makes horrible noises lately. I have tried eBay and can't find a fan specifically for the laptop and I can't find the specific model number of the fan. I have tried all of the stores that Acer has on their website and can't find anything either. Thanks for anything you can offer.

    Welcome to the forums, iain.lightbody!

    Unfortunately, my favourite site for replacement Acer bits, AcerParts.com, has shut down; they only sell Asus parts now (boooo!). You could try to contact Acer Support, ask for the replacement fan to be sent to you and that you'll install it yourself (you might have already voided your warranty by upgrading the GPU anyway).

    And interestingly enough, I don't have the 5739G as "confirmed" MXM on my first page. Any chance you could snap some pics of your system's innards so I can confirm it's MXM-A?

    Check this link:
    Review Acer Aspire 5739G Notebook - Notebookcheck.net Reviews

    It has few photos which could be useful...
    As I could notice it has MXM slot A...
