My Acer laptop of 4 years finally overheated and will not fire up anymore. It has been overheating for awhile and I even went to get a cooling pad to help with heat dispersion. It still over heated. If anything it gave it a slow death.\n\nHas anyone else have issues with their Acre laptop and overheating situations? I still have my old Dell here that runs Windows XP and has got to be 10 years old. It still runs. Why is that?
