    same problem to me lately, finally decide to order a new one, but neither acer itself or (acer referal) has the parts in stock, wasting time on waiting phone all day today, frustrated.

Once, I had the same problem, and i solved it buy cleaning my fan!
You need to unscrew the 6 screw under your laptop and clean the fan and espescially the part between the fan and the laptop itself.(there is allways a lot of dust).

1. Take off the silver plastic strip (where the power button is) and the keyboard then unscrew the fan.
2. Remove it and clean it using a paper towel and anti-static foam.
3. Gently scrape out the dust build up from inside the fan cubby.
Make sure all is dry and reconnect the fan, keyboard and strip.

Should be a lot quieter now as air will pass through as it should.

The fan is not turning... the computer overheats every 5 to 10 minutes .... different colour dots appear on the screen and then it freezes and turns itself of... the bottom of the hardrive so so hot u cant...

fans are really inexpensive so thats a plus however it shouldnt be doing this .the sft could be coruppted so replace fan and re-install OS for base configuration then you will know if your os is corrupted at least --good luck!

I have a new(2 week old) E6400 Dell latitde. It got hot and now when I press the power button to turn it on the fan is running on high and the computer makes a beep and immediatety shuts off. How can I fix...

is this computer under warantee being new? if so contact dell for service..
this is usually a telltale sign of processor overheating.
unplug it from the wall and let it cool for 30 minutes. restart it, make sure your not laying it on a blank, your lap, or any other surface that will block the vents on the side bottom or rear. I always put mine on the table or a book, any flat hard surface is good.

if it still shuts down after a few mnutes , i would contact dell warantee support.

Gateway nv52 notebook screen goes black but is still on, 2 days

I've had the same problem. The problem occurs because the wifi network driver is conflicting with vista. Just update to Atheros Network Driver V7.7.0.356 and it should fix the problem. You can find the download on the gateway support page.

Inspiron 8200...can it be fixed?

When that guy so you mentioned opened it up did he tell you it is possibly the fan stuffed up on the top of the processor. Thats why it was hot. Replace the fan then you wont have any problems. If you do the one who opened it first did not put the right things back proper thats my assumption. The sound and the touch pad connections were not replaced when he put it together again. Although the fan on the processor may have been going it is not strong enough to cool the processor down.
