Hi. I am hoping someone can help me. I am trying to install the fan as my laptop keeps overheating but I only have a Slanted side vent on my netbook. Please can someone advise me of how I can get it to work? Many Thanks. Chris

My laptop is a Acer Aspire one 725 and the fan is a strong cool USB laptop fan.

Many Thanks.

Chris

For all those users who want to connect anything to their USB ports that is not a computer device, DON"T.  Drawing too much current through the port will burn it up.  I recommend buying a USB powered hub to run those non-computer devices (fans, lights, coffee warmers, etc).  Save yourself from a dead USB port.
