\015\012You are not the only one experiencing this issue.
\015\012
\015\012The problem is because of Windows Vista.
\015\012
\015\012Here is one person's solution.

\015\012
\015\012Of course, messing with the BIOS or updating is serious business. I would recommend you send Acer an email with links to articles of all the people experiencing the issue and demand for them to assist you for free (especially sense your warranty is freshly out).
\015\012
\015\012Another option, would be to find a local technician (get references) and let them flash (update) the bios. I would print the above article so they can have a reference to the issue.
\015\012
\015\012Please let me know if you have any questions.
If u know how to do this, best shot is to open ur laptop and just clean it, but if its as hot as u describe, the problem might be something related to ur processor.\015\012
\015\012Get it to a local tech and ask them to clean it for u, usually they dont charge thaaaat much, here in mexico is like 150 pesos = 13 us dollars. \015\012
\015\012I recomend u buy one of those bases with vents in them specially for laptops, u can find them at best buy or even walmart, they come in a lot of shapes and they help a looooot.
