I have had my Aspire notebook for about two weeks now and it is malfunctioning in a way I have never seen before (and I had a Dell before this, so I know lots of problems).
At startup, I open up the Windows screen after entering my password to get into my account. Now, picture the sound of the fan on a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being nearly inaudible. Upon the appearance of my Windows account, the fan is at a 1 (as expected). As more and more programs load, the fan starts increasing to a 2 (no worries), a 3 (hmmm), a 4 (ok, not going through much stress here), and then as it hits a 5, where the fans are maxing the RPMs, my computer locks up and the only way to get any response is by holding the power button.
Hopefully, my explanation made sense. I came to Acer thinking that they would have a better product without paying for the Dell name and I am seriously questioning my thinking. Hopefully someone can put some reason into this issue. Thanks in advance for all help!
