The fan may have gone bad. Turn the laptop on and put your hand on the bottom where the fan vent is. If you can't hear the fan turning or feel air coming out, the fan is probably bad and will need to be replaced. (Hopefully it hasn't caused any hardware damage and once you replace the fan it should work fine.)

If you can hear the fan spinning but can't feel any air coming out, the duct might be blocked or clogged with dirt. Turn the computer off and blow some compressed air into the fan from about a 45 degree angle. If you feel comfortable opening the computer up, remove the screws from the bottom of the case and take the bottom off so you can get to the fan. Clean the fan blades with a dry lint-free cloth, or with a damp cloth and then dry the blades. Put the computer back together and hopefully the fan should spin freely now and blow air out the vent.

Acer Aspire 4330 battery pack


Well .. What is your "warranty" from tiger on this unit? I would consider contacting them first to see if they would send you a replacement. If not there are "cooling" pads such as this that you can use to help keep it a bit cooler.

I bought a reconditioned Acer Aspire 4330 from Tiger Direct. After 30 minutes of being plugged in, the battery pack is really HOT! Any suggestions?


the battery or the power unit?
if the battery is getting hot i suggest a cooling mat/stand for the laptop.
if the power unit is getting hot you may want to get it checked or replaced.

My laptop an Acer Aspire 5610z shuts dow every 5 minutes. The fan is running VERY loud and the bottom of the computer gets very hot. I am using it on a flat hard surface so I have no idea why it is doing...


if your acer is like mine it gets very hot and a thermal curout switch shuts down the item, to prevent damage to cpu.
i raised mine, and put a cooling pad unit under it, which the 3 fans driven by a usb plug continually cool it, i also moved into a cool room with good air circulation.

It maybe getting too hot. You need to blow out all vents and fans. I have seen acer laptops get too hot, easily, so you need to make sure it is dust free.

G'luck
