Answer to: Why is my laptop overheating and what can I do about it?Your laptop may be overheating due to an excessive number of programs running, extended use, or poor ventilation. Try propping the laptop up so the bottom can effectively disperse the heat created. If this does not help the fan may be clogged. The fan can be accessed on the bottom of the laptop and cleaned to solve this problem. For additional help, visit the Acer Aspire 3000 Troubleshooting page.
