Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5022 Notebook
My laptop has been insanely overheating for quite some time, even with the assistance of an additional cooling pad it still overheats. A while back I sent the laptop to Acer and asked them to repair this, which they told me would be no problem. It came back and they had fixed another issue, broken casing around the hinges of the screen, but hadn't fixed my fan. So I've decided I really need to do this myself, and started looking for the service manual for the 3020/5020 series. I found the 3000/3500/5000 one, but that series has easy access to the fan area, whereas the 3020/5020 series does not. Does anyone know where I can find the service manual for the 3020/5020 series without having to part with a few pounds? I'm sure it must be out there somewhere!
Here is the service manual for the Acer Aspire 5100. Open this page, go down to the bottom and click on the link labled: "Download >>

The fixing of the fan and/or the thermostat control is primary, I understand.
As a temporary fix or an alternative solution to bad thermostat units (or work that is just not worth the time or money) I have recommended cooling pads and they work beautifully!
I realize this is another part to manage and so forth but I also recommend these to my clients that have "hot" running laptops that can often be very hot to the lap.
If you need more assistance, please just ask!~
