Hello All
I live in Puerto Rico, thats in the caribbean, where its always warm or hot.
I have an Acer Aspir computer X3910. Its one of those small case system about
half the size of a regular one. but since I bought this one it always runs very hot.
About 145+ degrees. Under vwarrenty, they have already replaced on hard drive.
And the hard drive has about 10 bad sectors. Any ideas as to what I shoud do ????

If it's under warranty...I would contact Acer. If it's poor design resulting in the overheating...they need to take care of that.

Is the hard drive the only component overheating...what about the system itself?

How do you know that the hard drive is overheating, if you've not opened the case?

The CPU runs hot at times and peaks at about 136 degrees.
I have three apps that tell me the temp. of some of
the components.

they are really small cases and tend to heat up did you try running it with the cover off the case ,i have a older Dell SFF very similar to your case ,and it runs hot ,i remove the side cover and it helps

private local computer store sells a lot of them ,most are new, but refurbished,they most time don't even tell the buyer that its a referb, so that tells about how bad they are

Yes, some. I got a free Acer Veriton 7900pro and it has a pretty solid case itself and there seems to be no problems with it.
