Yes, it is normal. You can try using a cooling pad like those made by evercool or belkin but it won't cut down on the noise much. If you have a waterbed and can place the laptop directly on the mattress the water will act like a huge heat sink and keep your unit much cooler.

If the fan was not that noisy before , this can only be cause by a dirty fan and you may need to clean it up to reduce the hum coming out from it...

Makes loud continual beeping noise after boot up and fan sounds very noisy


The beeping is most likely bad RAM, the fan running loudly may be a result of the system not being able to detect it's own temperature (which can also be caused by RAM if the system can not post correctly) or it could just be a dirty fan.

My Acer Aspire One AOA150 's fan is very loud and warm


I'd suggest that you carefully pull the base of your Acer apart - taking out the screw, and keeping track of them. See if your fan is dirty - I have an Acer as well, and if it's dirty, it get loud, and HOT!

A quick cleaning does wonders!
