Acertravelmate 2420 overheating

Hi
I have Acer travelmate 2428. The problem i am having might be similiar to the one discussed before i.e. overheating. In the months from Jan to April,(Quebec, Canada) i noticed that the area around the fan often got hot. However, it was only in summer months that my laptop suddenly started switching off espiecally during the hot humid days.

I found that whenever i had directed my motor-powered fan onto the laptop, the problem seemed to cease.

No doubt the problem is overheating but is there a solution to it? should i get a cooling pad or sth similiar? I am not sure if i could carry a motor-fan with me all the time. :) please let me know

    I have the same problem. After my computer is on for about half an hour, I hear the fan go into overdrive and then it just shuts down. If I restart it, it'll either shut down again right away, or run for about 5 minutes before doing the same thing. It will do it over and over until I let it cool down for a good 20 mins.

I think you have answered this issue yourself, I sugest that you obtain two items, a cooler pad, and a usb powered mini fan for carrying around

Microphone connect have acer aspire travelmate


It appears that your Acer has 3 ports in the front center bottomportion of the laptop. One of them should be for plugging in an external microphone, one should be for external speakers, and one should be an input jack.http://complap.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/acer-travelmate-2420-2.192120139_std.jpg
