4920 Any advice would be appreciated. I have just purchased (1 day) Acer Aspire 4290.(vista) The problem is the noise level and frequency of the fan. It seems to be starting up every few minutes. I'm wondering if this is normal for a new system and if it will settle down over time. My old ASUS laptop (xp) with much lower specs has a much quietier and less frequent fan. So the comparison between the 2 is chalk and cheese. Is there anything i can do about the Acer or is this just inherent in this

My 4 year old Acer Aspire 5520 notebook shuts off on me at random time periods. I try keeping it proped up and keeping it cool but that doesnt even seen to help.

Hello again....i've just discovered within the setup and PC health status that there seems to be a problem with the 12v supply. There are 3 different Voltage meters: 1) 12V 2) 5V 3) 3.3V Alongside these is the actual reading supplied and the 5V and 3.3V show a correct reading, however the 12V supply only shows 0.06V. If fear that this is why the fan isn't working. any ideas???.....HELP
