Now, before you go jumping to any conclusions that I'm a psychotic IT-pervert who kisses his screen while watching computer animated porn, give me a chance to explain myself. Every night, I HAVE to kiss my laptop. Unless I don't use it for that night.
Not because I love it to bits, but rather because those damn Acer manufacturers don't have the brains to ensure that their measly pieces of rotating metal they call CPU fans have the ability to keep their laptops cool enough for NORMAL usage. I'm not talking about those hardcore 12-hour gaming sessions, but rather just a normal 2 to 3 hours of internet surfing and some gaming.
Eveyone knows that Acer laptops are famous for overheating to the point that some actually tried to cook eggs on it, but who ever knew that mine would overheat to a point where it would literally turn itself off. This has happened consistantly almost everyday after just 2 to 3 hours of play, which of course produced a very frustrated Anyhow who, in a fit of rage, shot an email to Acer's technical support giving them a piece of my mind [more like an avalanche of my mind], which up till today they haven't replied to. This continued for a few weeks until I found the secret. And the secret is to give it CPR. I'M NOT KIDDING!
After every game of DOTA that I play, I have to become a human cooling machine and give the laptop CPR for about 2 minutes just to ensure that the insides are cool enough to last me another game. Now, before you start LOL-ing and LMAO-ing, telling me not to be stupid and buy a mini fan to cool my laptop with, let me tell you that I did buy a USB fan, only for it to work fine a few days, and after which, becomes a white elephant as my laptop constantly tells me time and time again that 'The USB device has exceeded it's power limit', resulting in the mini fan becoming more of a mini ferris wheel.
So until I find the time to buy a mini fan that plugs into a power point, I'll just have to keep kissingy laptop every night and hope for the best. Just for your info, there where a few times where I blowed so hard that I actually felt giddy for a few moments after. From this day on, I condemn all Acer laptops. But I heard their desktops are still ok. Well, that's another story for another time maybe.
