It also sounds like you have a cooling issue with your processor. Try removing that is over the area of the exhaust vents and clean all the dust and **** off the vents, heat sink, and fan. You may have to remove the fan to do so.
Some acer laptops have a known cooling problem which create exactly this type of issue. I have an acer Aspire 3680 2301 and a lot of forums recommended to put it in the freezer (no kidding!). JUst try to level up the laptop from your table with some stable blocks (just an inch off the table should be enough. You don't want to knock it off the ground by accident. Just mind where the cooling fans are when you position your blocks and make sure you have all 4 corners covered for stability.
Open your system configuration and check all programs running unchecking unneccessary programs may increase speed if your antivirus is at its maximum configuration it can slow your cpu reconfigure the antivirus to essentials only and run it if it performs better the antivirus program may be too heavy, get a registry cleaner program your registry may be clogged with unnecessary links and loops. and finally if you have konwledge on registry editing there are tweeks that can be done to increase performance. check also you display configuarations if it is set on best appearance themes and other displays can slow down processing uncheck most of them or set display it in best performance (Right click my computer - click advance tab - click performance settings button - click best performance you could check the last 4 options present to make your desk top appear fairly decent then check if performance improves. Have you checked your ram modules it may not be working properly (right click My computer it should register you total ram if its the same with your actual then there is nothing wrong with it if not it may be a RAM module problem. Hope your lap top works faster.

The easiest method is to restart the PC. If high CPU usage continues after reboot Check the performance monitor. Start Task Manager >> Performance >> Resource Monitor. Locate the process that uses the most CPU power and kill it with right click >> End process.
There are many things that
might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a
fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU
and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or
To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task
Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL
and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the
Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of
memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and
sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the
resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google
the name and you should find what the process is for.
If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different
issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan
your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is
100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus
scanners that you can run to check your PC:
when connected to a network the cpu performance get highe, check your cpu performance by press control alt and delete on your keyboard at the same time to go to windows task manager, see the cpu usage by clicking performance, if the cpu usage is above 50% it means that wasn't normal, run a virus scan to make sure that your windows is free from viruses, if it can't fix your problem it mean you need to reinstall your operation system
Over heating is because of over load for CPU
To check this
Right click on Task bar>Start task manager> Performance tab>(If your PC utilizing 70+% CPU......)
Select Processes tab from task manager it self search program in which utilizing 50++% CPU.Select that program and click on End task now your.No follow the above to whether your PC utilizing 70+% CPU.. If yes you need check for some more programs which using 40++% CPU and you need End those programs also.......
I hope this helps
If you have some more doughs feel free to ask....
Have a nice day
Are you familiar with the freeware tool called Process Explorer? It's a third party version of Windows Task Manager but contains many more features. For example, if a svchost process is using a lot of memory you can mouse over the process and actually see which services are running in the svchost process. Of course, there's much more that can be done with the Process Explorer application. and It's size is not very large for all it does. I've been using it for a few years now and it has helped me more than Windows Task Manager. Please check it out to see if it can help you determine what's causing the high cpu usage. Here's a good article about Process Explorer: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx Here's the Process Explorer download link: http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/ProcessExplorer.zip
