Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
If you have lost the rubber feet that normally elevate the laptop off the table then yes, the flat desktop is restricting airflow to the unit. Place your hand next to the fan output and see if you feel warm air.. it will be faint as the fan in a laptop is not huge. if there is no air coming lift the laptop off the desk and see if the air flow improves if so then the desktop is your culprit. You should look at some type of cooling pad such as Targus makes that has supplemental cooling. Second possibility is that cooling fan and heat sink is clogged with dust and dirt. I have seen them so dirty they actually look like sponges where the dust bunny has formed in the shape of the laptop case area. Take a home vacuum hose if you have one, with the nozzle shielded with your hand to control the suction force and gently go over the exhaust vent on your laptop. Stay away from keys as the suction will pull them off keyboard. Do not allow full force suction on laptop or use a shop vac as they can cause damage. This will help clear out dust and clogging dirt that can affect cooling as well. If all of the above fail then you should look at a possible CPU or motherboard failure causing heat problems.
