    Default Acer Aspire 6530G overheating

    Has anyone had problems with the Acer6530G overheating? I only started monitoring temperatures after I started experiencing unexplained shutdowns, and the computer typically idles around 75-80 degrees Celcius. It easily jumps to around 95 degrees Celcius during load periods.
    Virus and spyware checks come up clean. Drivers are updated. I even tried to reset the computer back to factory settings in case there was some sort of program conflict, but the temperatures remain high.

    First clean the vents with a gas duster (canned air) or a vacuum cleaner.
    If this doesn't help you should disassemble the notebook and apply new high quality thermal compound.

    I should have mentioned that I have cleaned the fan and the vents. There weren't much dust to speak of, but it has helped a little since I no longer have heat related shut downs. The temp still rises to the mid 90 though.
    Is the application of thermal compound something that can be done under warranty? I'm not comfortable disassembling the computer myself.

    You could try to talk Acer into doing this- it might work or not- depending on what your local Acer people make of this.

    The downside of sending it to Acer is that they will use low quality thermal compound (read cheap) and will not be very thorough.
    If you want to get it done properly buy some Arctic Silver or any other good wuality paste and apply it yourself.

    Google "Aspire 6530 service guide"- that will give you access to a service manual with pictures for all stages of disassembly. See for yourself if it's complicated.

    How long have you had the laptop? That might help. Also, whether you still have warranty or not.

    On the topic of the warranty, and taking the machine apart, in previous threads, people have talked about upgrading their laptops, notably CPU's. Certain Acer centres have said that if the machine is sent back with the original parts in, the warranty is still valid, so theoretically it may be possible to disassemble the laptop without any issues.

    But as Downloads said, it would probably be wise to give them a call and see what they say.

    If you can get a copy of the service guide, this gives you step by step instructions on how to take it apart. If followed correctly and parts handled properly, it should be pretty straight forward.

    I went to a restaurant that serves 'breakfast at any time'. So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance.

    Depends. Some machines have a sticker that you have to remove/break in order to disassemble.
