Having problems with your Acer PC Laptops ?

Acer TravelMate 2420 overheating and Power management problems Hi, I bought a used Acer TravelMate 2420 laptop (WinXP, RAM 1 GM, hard disk 40 GB, Intel Celeron M processor 1,50 GHZ) and since the beginning it had overheating problems and also some issues with power management. And yes, I know it was a stupid thing to buy it, but knowing it doesn't help. Now the problems: 1. Whatever I do, it keeps overheating, even if no programs are opened. The laptop's fan works very vaguely, and I can hardly


Answers :

What I'm going to tell you will be frowned upon by most people but I have a Toshiba that is still working after ten years among other laptops. If you have a compressor or go to someone who has one(Compressed air is available but not strong enough in my estimation), find the fan on the bottom and blow that ****** out, then blow from the outlet side. I take the bottom off of mineby removing a few tiny screws and then I can really clean it out. You will be amazed at the difference. Make sure and keep the stream of air in that area and not blow dust up where it shouldn't be :>) Let me know.
Man **** acer ... there support is like **** ....
