Ive got the same model. mine gets damn hot too. especially after about 4hrs you can barely type on it or use the mouse pad.
i sent it back as soon as i got it. acer replaced the fan and said it was fine. 4hrs later it was running as hot as before. they probably did nothing but waste my time for 2 weeks. just poor design i spose. poor cooling system poor design. i also noticed the fan air vent is on the right hand side. again poor design, most people are right handed. getting hot air blown on your hand when using an external mouse, during a hot summer day is not pleasant. dont think ill buy an Acer again

How do I fix Acer Travel-Mate 5744, The laptop cannot boot. There is a brief Brand Name Acer and then it goes back off.

Heating the motherboard enough to repair a dry joint is rather folly. It will do more harm than good unless you heat both sides simultaneously at controlled temperatures..

Remove hdd and RAM. See what happens when you try to boot. You should get a DOS screen. If not, replace the motherboard.

Shutdown computer don't open again then 2/4 hours computer start then open.

Not exactly sure what you mean, but sounds like it could be a laptop getting too hot. Because the space inside them is so small, laptops overheat and shut down to protect themselves from damage. They will not switch on again for a while, until they have cooled down enough. One solution is you can buy a small stand to put the laptop on, which has a fan powered by USB. Try to keep the laptop cool and make sure the fans are not blocked by anything.

My acer travelmate 4200 laptop keeps turning of

This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

Acer TravelMate Laptop, cord getting hot, not getting power

I would imagine the voltage regulator in the adapter brick it will fry your motherboard if it starts throwing off power spikes. laptops need good consistent power flow of the right voltage. Buy another adapter.

Acer Travelmate 2300 memory all used

Disk space is not RAM.
RAM is a memory where operating system and software keeps their current state.
All disk space used is a message about the harddrive on your laptop.
You will have to buy bigger harddrive and change it (you will have to move or reinstall system) or buy an external USB harddrive and move some data onto it keeping the original system in place.

Keyboard not working on acer travelmate 2350

it could be the sensors are damaged under the keys, but hopefully its just the driver. Right click on my computer icon and click properties and then the hardware tab, then device manager and look down the list for keyboard. Click the + sign and then right click on your keyboard under that and select uninstal. Restart the notebook and it will reinstall itself and hopfully work as it should do, if not then the keyboard itself is damaged in some way.

Dismantle Acer travelmate 270 Laptop

Caution is advised, as getting everything to work again after you put it back together is normally difficult, especially the screen. You will have to remove all the panels underneath, all screws and look for screws around the screen hinge area, with hexagon heads. There are no instructions on acer notebooks on their site for obvious reasons.
