There are two solutions to this problem. First set the fan in the PC Bios to rub at full speed all the time. This was too noisy for me.
Second, If you are running Windows Vista, you can adjust the Maximum Porcessor Utilization. From the Windows Control Panel select the Power Options icon. Then select "Change plan settings" for which ever power plan the PC is set to use. Then select "Change advanced power settings". Expand the "Processor power managment" by clicking on the "+" symbol. Finally click on the "+" for "Maximum processor state". I would try changing this setting to "90 %". This worked fine on my ACER L100 and it no longer overheats.

Re: Over Heating Problem In Acer Aspire L100
No liquid cooling would be to hard to install. you can attach another fan. but you will still have a problem. the downside to these computers is there short of made to overheat. you can attempt to do liquid cooling as others have done. but thats an expensive waste. your best bet is to buy a new case and mother board. for about 80 dollars. swap out all your guts and be happy. youd have everything and not fry your dvd rom and harddrive. as most of these L100's have nice processors and a decent amount of ram.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job", to remove the dust, because the dust is acting as a layer of insulation, trapping heat inside your computer.
Reload the battery.
Connect the AC power.
Start your laptop, and check that the fans inside the notebook computer are pushing air out of the exhaust-vents. If not, the fan(s) have failed, and you need a professional computer technician to disassemble your computer, and fix the fans.
1) go to www.devicedoctor.com 2) Download and install the device doctor software 3) Once installed open it up and click scan, it will then scan your PC for the best driver 4) Download the driver (entitled VGA driver) and install 5) Restart and see if this cured the issue
I am not totally sure if this is the problem, but I would suggest that you may have a power supply issue or possibly it going out. If the computer runs fine, and then shuts down, than this can be more symptomatic to a overheating issue.
In my limited experience with overheat issues, the computer actually smelled like it was getting hot, and then it would slow down and then sometimes stop. Most computers have fail safe settings where they either alarm, or shut down or both when they overheat.
