as u can prolly tell by the heading i am running a hot computer. im not exactly sure if htis was the forum i was meant to write into, but it seemed that it could b a hardware thing. i use an acer aspire 1640 which has not had any parts changed or anything. i was wondering if there is a way to tell how hot ur computer is running and then possibly how to fix it if its running too hot. mine does run hot, to the point where i have an icepack on it :S please help me!
