edited November 2019 in Nitro and Aspire Gaming
I have used this laptop for about a month. I bought this new Nitro 7 with cash from our local store. This laptop has so much potential, but is that normal when CPU temperature goes up to 90 degrees when playing a Overwatch on lowest graphics?

The other problem that relates to battery is that the battery stays on 88%. This sounds a little bit rant, but I'm pretty worried about the future days of the machine, because I paid like one and half kilos of a ***** laptop and it's likely decaying on my hands.

    The processor of this model has a maximum safe TDP of 100ºC.
    Tenpertura issues are often related to use:
    The appliance should be used in an airy place with a base that allows room for air circulation underneath.
    Do not use under materials such as fabrics, wood, plastics, etc.
    Preferably metals, cold stones, glass, etc. which have higher heat dissipation.
    In high performance and gamer handsets it is highly advisable to use active cooler base.

    How much did the battery perform the initial calibration recommended by the manufacturer?

    - There is no soft surface. On a hard surface like a wooden kitchen table.

    How much did the battery perform the initial calibration recommended by the manufacturer?
    - Excuse me, what do you mean? On first charge it showed like "8 hours" 100% and now it shows 1h 20m on 88% if I unplug it. I have also cleaned entire Windows by it's built in tool which resets entire OS. Then I realize that the machine stays up with power supply, but won't charge the battery at all.

    Avoid contact of the appliance with wood as it is a bad material for heat dissipation.

    As for the battery, perform the reset and calibration.


    CALIBRATION AND BATTERY RESET

    First, disable Quick Start in the power options and disconnect the notebook from the power outlet.

    I already removed the driver from device manager. It did not solve the problem. I also did not find the reset PIN hole anywhere from bottom not even near the battery.

    I have tried pretty many things tho, but it makes me only nervous, because I have spent pretty long penny on high quality machine and everything I have to do is start troubleshooting the issues. I don't even want to hear that I have to send it to repair service.

    First of all, any electronic equipment, whatever its value, brand or developer, is subject to error during its useful life.
    It is not a matter of "troubleshooting" but understanding the operation and peculiarity of the laptop.

    Actually in this particular model, battery reset pinhole was canceled, instead of pressing the power button for 12 seconds to reset the battery with the device turned off.

    I can check does this resolve the charging issue. Shows that it is on power supply, but not charging. Let's see.

    Anything above 65C is a source of concern for me. All gaming laptops heat up a lot. Get a laptop cooler with a beefy fan. I have gone further and blocked all the laptop cooler's perimiter, so ALL the air is forced into the laptop from the bottom. It helps cooling tremendously.

    The above suggestions also do not work (Acer Nitro 7 has an internal battery).
    I have battery reset (using Nitro method; power 12 seconds whilst device off).
    The fact is - it's a new computer. You shouldn't ever have these issues OOTB.
    I bought a brand new Nitro 7 from PB Tech - Penrose, Auckland.

    This computer had the SAME ISSUE as the one you're describing! I got it swapped. SAME ISSUE.
    You heard this right....... TWO COMPUTERS WITH THE SAME FAULT.
    I'm also reading a number of other customer reviews on other blogs with this exact issue. Time for a product recall!

    I think it's a power adapter issue: When using a multiplug on a 240v power supply: Fault, When using directly into the power: Charge.
    I think it doesn't reach the necessary voltage minimum (200v) to charge the device.
