I wonder if anyone can help, i've got an acer aspire 1620 specs:
Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz (Northwood)
ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 64MB
512MB DDR333 SDRAM
60 GB Ultra ATA/100 HDD
It over heats majorly, i'm supprised it doesn't melt, but the main thing is how loud the fans are when it gets this hot.
I can't say a percific temp, as i can't see it anywhere in the BIOS.
I bought a laptop cooling pad which helps a bit, but it's not very practical.
So i'm thinking about underclocking it, how would I go about this, i've no experience with over/underclocking.
Would this be a safe thing to do, because if something goes wrong i don't think I can really open it up and attempt to fix it.
Also would this help my battery life, which is very poor, about 40 minutes at a push.
P.s. Any other suggestions to fix this would be appriciated
