Question about Acer Aspire 5100-5022 Notebook
I am about to kill it.
The fan runs really loud and the whole laptop gets very hot. I must admit I'm not a tech wiz, but I know how to take proper care of a computer, and I swear - it just started doing it on its own.
I run my settings on the "power saver" plan constantly, have basically nothing more installed than what it came with when I got it at Circuit City.
I was able to pop open the back, and the fan was pretty dusty but it wasn't horrible. I took some canned air to it, cleaned it up, turned it on and it's still doing the same thing.
My questions are:
Am I screwed?
Should I just buy a new one, or is the possible solution to my problem easier?
The fan can be cleaned. You may want to take it into a computer repair store and get it done as well as inspection of it. Noisy fans are caused by dust in the bearings. In most cases, this can create the noise since the bearing are being grinded down.
