My netbook goes in "Hoverheat"!
July 16, 2012 5:07pm CST
Dear friends Mylotters. I own a Netbook ACER Aspire ONE D-255 for over a year. When at home, no need of its battery as I keep it plugged into a power outlet. But for now, I'm on vacation and I need to move frequently from one room to another. I must say that the temperature of the rooms is quite high, because we are around 30 degrees Celsius. The other day I was working at the computer, which was powered electrically, the temperature of the unit, was so high that you scalded if you kept your finger on the metal VGA socket on the left side (you have a welder?). Overheat problem. I went into a store and they confirmed that indeed the outdoor temperature can affect the overheating of the machine. I believe that if kept at a temperature regime that is too high, it will eventually be damaged. I hope I am wrong! Please share your opinions about

The last few weeks I have had to keep a little mini fan blowing on mine all the time I'm using it. It definitely runs better when it's not over heating. I have a Toshiba and it's my second one. My first one (a full-sized laptop; the one I have now is a netbook like yours) used to shut down when it would get too hot. It seems to be fine with the fan or in the cooler months of the year but with the summer heat I need the fan running.

My husband says that netbooks do overheat if used for more than 2 hours, he usually advise his clients to use a fan, there are ones available now which has cooling pads that are used below the netbooks.. you can also buy that.. or use it inside an airconditioned room.

Hello! Netbooks are not designed for heavy use, You can use it at most 2 hours, you really must purchase a fan for netbooks if you are using it for more than 2 hours, but you should also consider that the life span of your netbook will eventually decrease by over using it.. Acer aspire one usually burns the built in fan and eventually damaging the board..
