About the speakers, you need to replace them with factory OEM speakers.
The touchpad and the headphone outlet will get hot if the laptop is hot inside. You might want to check the fan for dust and clean it. So the heatfan extracts the heat from inside. Avoid using your laptop on a surface without airflow, such as mattresses or pillows.
To avoid overheating and graphics card buring out, use the laptop keeping on a flat surface, especially not on pillows, bed and lap. Also dont use the laptop always connected to the power adapted. Connect only when the battery goes down. This will increase the battery life too.
Typically, normal temperature is over 100 degrees. There have been reports of fires starting as the result of a overheated PC. I am not making the claim, I have not had this experience.
Heat is the enemy of delicate computer parts. They call them Lap Tops but you should never use one on your lap. Always place your lap top on a hard surface to insure the vents are not blocked and the internal fan can try to do its job. If you are concerned about the heat, you can get a 'cool pad' to use under your lap top. A cool pad has a fan which blows onto your lap top to keep it cool. The cool pad gets its power from a USB in your laptop. This cool pad should not be used for long periods of time on battery power for obvious reasons.
It is important to remember that laptops draw in air from the bottom of the unit. So if you place the laptop on your bed or a nice fluffy pillow on your lap to keep your legs from getting hot, then it can't draw in air and it will over heat. The second thing to remember is that, while they are good laptops, Acers are generally not the best for gaming and the internal graphics card may be getting over worked.
This usually happens when your laptops gets overheated. Avoid using laptop keping on beds, pillows of laps. Always keep it on a flat surface facilitating amble air flo. Also dont use the laptop always plugged to the power adapter. It again overheats the base. Change and discharge the batteries, this increased the battery life too.
Usually the fan is controlled by the laptop. It comes on when it gets too warm. If you cannot hear the fan running from time to time, try blowing out the fan ducts with a can of compressed air. Also, laptops seem to generate a bit of heat due to there closed in parts. Also don't operate the laptop on anything soft like a blanket, or pillow or even your lap. (I use a large hardback book under mine)
Using a laptop on your lap is probably the worst place to use it. Most laptops have air intakes underneath or the side. Put it on your lap and these air vents can get blocked or restricted by you clothes. A solid surface is much better. Placing the laptop on a bed or pillow has pretty much the same result for exactly the same reason. If you plan to use this on your lap, find a cheap laptop cooler to set it on and I bet the problem goes away.
Keep it cool. Despite its name, you lap is not the best place to put a laptop. Laptops generate a lot of heat, which can have a severe effect on your laptop's performance. Try not to use it in a hot room. Never set it on a bed, pillow, upholstery or anything else that is soft. Instead, place your laptop on a hard surface like a table. If you like using your laptop in bed or on the couch, try putting a book or a thick magazine in your lap and then setting the laptop on top of that. Every ten minutes or so, turn the book over so the surface never gets too hot. This will absorb the heat.
Step2Shut down unneeded programs before using power-hungry software like games or large spreadsheets. The more programs you have running at the same time, the worse your computer's performance will be. Most computers have a lot of unneeded programs running in the background from the moment you boot up your computer. Shut them down manually using Ctrl+Alt+Delete, or download a freeware application that will shut them down for you. If you have Wndows Vista, you can also access the start up configuration by selecting "Run" from the accessories menu, then typing "msconfig" in the box
You didn't mention if you had a laptop or a desktop. But on a laptop there is a small fan on the power supply that cools the CPU and all inside. The laptop must always be used on a flat surface like a table to ensure the air is circulating properly. Putting it on your lap or on your bed will cause it to heat more than usual. Yes they do get hot, the tempature is monitored by your BIOS and will automatically shut down if it gets too hot, this is to save the CPU from being damaged. As long as things are working properly then you are ok.
