Acer TravelMate 6292-6B2G25Mn Laptop Prone to Overheating

[ 4 ] April 19, 2009 |

We have purchased our Acer TravelMate 6292-6B2G25Mn Notebook for almost PhP 34K. It’s small sleek and stylish. However, me and my wife have observed (since we alternately use it) that after several hours of usage, it accumulates far more heat than our Lenovo G410 laptop (an older model). The Acer TravelMate 6292 could be prone to overheating, we said.

acer-travelmate-6292-6b2g25mn-laptopThe statement given above is not conclusive. We love the Acer TravelMate 6292-6B2G25Mn laptop, no doubt. We find it very convenient to bring anywhere and it has helped us in more ways than one in the past few weeks but this above-normal temperature we have observed is an alarming sign. We have already blogged in our aprtner site, Technology Talks, about a similar problem with laptop batteries overheating which triggered the recall of those notebooks from the market by their respective manufacturers (Sony, for example).

With respect to the Acer TravelMate 6292-6B2G25Mn notebook, we’ll have to consult the seller from which we got the unit to verify if there had complaints of overheating in the past. It may not be the battery because I have inspected the back part of the unit a couple of times but the heat is still normal. My theory is the metal casing inside that’s causing the temperature to rise that high or it could be the small heatsink and/or fan inside. The Acer TravelMate 6292 only has a 12-inch LCD screen and the total width is only about 13 inches in my calculation. I just don’t want to open it up because it’s still under warranty. Also, it’s no wonder the unit’s parts are smaller than bigger laptop models. Even in cold places like Baguio City, the notebook easily heats up.

  2. […] Acer Aspire AS5515-5187 Notebook Review: This notebook works excellently for internet searching, viewing movies, listening to music, picture/image editing and some light gaming. The Acer Aspire AS5515-5187 notebook’s screen is quite big and has a high resolution (1280 x 800). It can store reports, photos, documents and even videos. In short, it can perform basic functions.

    I also have the travelmate 6292. I’ve had it for three years, and it is now constantly overheating. I shuts down without notice because of this and is a real pain.

    Because the warranty was over, I had a look. I was aiming to clean out the fan, but it is near impossible to get access to.
