Guys i have two acer laptops and both of them do the same thing \015\0121 is aspire 7720 and the other is a more of a normal laptop version\015\012the 7720 was refusing to run for more then 30minutes with windows 7 and xp so i put ubuntu linux on which isnt so bad but its not so leapard or windows 7 its a bit different i've got used to it but i'm just going to put them both on ebay and upgrade to a new 1 with 4gb of ram. \015\012your very right they overheat and become soooo hot it is quite dangerous actually but if its been over a year acer want to charge over £50 just to look at it, it's not, worth it, yes its nice but its too big and bulky, give your legs a break mines are starting to hurt\015\012the other laptop is slimmer and is a windows 7 dual boot with leapard it runs ok but the mouse thing, is beyond hopeless\015\012hope i've helped someone if you want to contact me \015\012im on [email protected]\015\012xxx
I'm also having the same problem (I know this doesn't help!), but I have experience with opening the back panel. It takes quite a lot of force (to the point where you think you might almost break it!); from the grove work your way counter-clockwise, try to leaver it open slowly with something as you go. I opened mine, but couldn't really get to the cpu (as ClickRight said) and there wasn't much dust to get rid of. \015\012\015\012My laptop has started to have this problem after about 1 year of operation and heavy travelling (to and from China, India, etc!). Other than the overheating problem, its fine!\015\012\015\012I'd suggest you upgrade the BIOS also.. I had 1.07 and upgraded to 1.45, it seems to handle the fan differently; although still didn't stop the overheat (I guess if its clogged, no amount of software upgrading will do!)
