My Acer Aspire 5735z constantly runs hot at around 65-70 degrees celcius. It runs very hot even when i'm not doing much. Watching a movie or playing a small online game makes the computer go into overdrive...

Have you replaced the heat sink thermal paste?
Also the fan blades may look clean, but have you removed the fan and checked the outlet grill that the fan blows through, it gets clogged with fluff, dust and hair etc.

ACER aspire one netbook model# A0A150 cooling fan quit

If it is just the fan then yes you can fix it yourself its just a matter of getting the computer open enough to where you can get to the fan. Then all you have to do is take out the old and install the new. No biggie. There are some cases however where components on the motherboard can cause the fan to stop running. This is pretty rare though. Fans are the easiest fix so I hope for your sake it is the fans. Sometimes if there is a lot of dust in the fan you can even get it to work just by cleaning the fan off.

I need step by step instructions on how to use the web cam on my aspire 5534 laptop

Webcam can be used for two purposes. 1. For making a video of your own. For this you have to use the webcam SW that is loaded in your laptop. Start the program and follow the instructions. 2. You can use it with you IM for video call. That means that the person you are talking to over the internet will be able to see you and you him if he too has a webcam on. How. In your IM open the Options and go to Video settings. Here specify this webcam as your default camera for video chats. Then you can even test it if it works. After that whenever you talk to someone on your IM. start video call and you both will be able to see each other. You can also start a conference call by addingmore people to your call.

Acer t310 fan runs when shutdown

More than likely the cpu is still hot even after you shut off you computer, so as a saftey precaution the fan is trying to cool it down,(which is a good thing).
