Hi. Ive had my laptop for just under 5 months running Vista Basic  and  Im having a problem. The first being recently it has started to over heat so much to the point of switching its  self off, If I connect my external hard drive the same thing it over heats the keyboard and side of the laptop gets very hot. You can hear the fan wurring away, at the moment im not connecting things eg: external HD, that seem to make it over heat (cause seems like everything connected to lap top heats up also) but as I mentioned it a reasonably new lap top surely this shouldnt be happening, any suggestions greatly appreciated Thanks (second querry Ill post in ISP questions).

As I assume it is still under warranty, that would be a good place to start.

I assume you are in NZ? Call 0800 ACERNZ

Thanks I was thinking it was time to ring them, just annoying cause I had done a bit of research before I got the Acer laptop  Thought I had chosen a pretty good one with everything I need and would last me a lot longer than it has, oh well i guess its one of those things. cheers
