If you thought you was having a hot flush it may just be your laptop. Acer has recalled several models from its laptop range over concern with overheating.
Five models have been highlighted as having possible problems because of fafulty wiring in the laptop.
“In the affected units the microphone cable may overheat when extreme pressure is applied repeatedly to the left palm rest,” said Acer’s product advisory. “As a result, the unit case may become deformed and the system may malfunction.”
“Acer has voluntarily instituted a safety recall program to proactively replace the microphone cable in the affected units to eliminate any risk of overheating,” the company added.
Acer’s website can be checked by entering your laptop’s serial and identification numbers to see if it needs replacement wiring. Alternatively, if your legs are feeling hotter than normal that may well be a reasonable indication too.
