Question about Acer Aspire 7720 Notebook
About 10 months after buying my laptop, it starts to suddenly, without any warning, shut down. Then, just after a year it shut down and wouldn't start again. Basically, the laptop was overheating due to bad ventilation design. Because of this problem, it burnt my hard-drive. I had a friend who works with computers replace the hard-drive, load a new OS onto it, and generally make the laptop good again.
I now have to have a cooling stand operating all the time to prevent this happening again, which basically defeats the purpose of a laptop. But now, even with the cooling, the temperature sometimes still gets very high!
Can anyone please help me out with this problem??
ARE ACER AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM? AND IF SO, WHAT IS THE SOLUTION........WHY HAVE THEY NOT DONE A RECALL??
I just fixed this with my daughter's laptop Acer Aspire 7720. The prolem was with lint covering inner side (facing cooling fan outlet). To fix:
- open the big cover on the bottom for the memory slots - well it covers everything: processor(s), memory clots etc.
4 screws, the cover also held by snapping little plastic tabs, do not be afraid to open but be rather carefull, do not just yank it open, you will see the fan facing back of the laptop in the corner, it suppose to blow through the heat sink.
- remove the fan, 3 screws, the screws are very little so be careful, you will see the inner side of the sink more likely coverd with lint, dust etc.
- carefully remove using tweezers and blow using canned compress air dust remover.
- assemble back in reversed order.
without removing the fan it is not really clear what it is I almost accidentaly saw it...
do not be afraid to do so you just need small screw driver. magnetic screw driver helps to handle the screws but be carefull with it as some components may be sensitive to magnetic field...
this did the trick for me I hope it works for you. please spread the word as I saw many posts about it in forums...

I use a product called the Laptop Flip which basically raises the back of my laptop decreasing heat by about 30%. I really like the functionality of the product and it solves the overheating issue. http://newpcgadgets.com/products/laptopflip/index.html
