Acer laptops are notorious for having lousy fans, unfortunatly. First off, I would not use the laptop until the problem is fixed as it could result in damage to the computer. You can invest in one of those cooling pads for your laptop, but thats a temporary solution and not garenteed to work. The best way, would be to replace the fan. Laptops are a pain to disassemble, so you may want to take it to a computer shop, but if your good at things like that take the outer cover apart enough where you can get to the fan, unplug the fan if possible, if its sodered onto the motherboard you may have to cut the wires halfway between the board and the fan, find out what size fan it is, and order one of the same dimensions, newegg has a large selection. If the fan was sodered or has a custom connection to the motherboard you will have to splice the wires together, but its fairly simple, there should only be 2, a red and a black one, just make sure you color code them.
