Acer recalls Aspire laptops that could overheat

Faulty microphone cable could cause laptops to overheat

Acer has issued a voluntary recall of some of its Acer Aspire laptops that may overheat due to a faulty microphone cable.

The PC maker has issued a voluntary recall for some Acer Aspire models that may be affected by the issue, the company said on a European customer support page.

Laptops eligible for the recall include Acer Aspire models AS3410, AS3810T, AS3810TG, AS3810TZ and AS3810TZG made before Sept. 15, 2009.

Acer has blamed a microphone cable, which could cause laptops to overheat when extreme pressure is applied repeatedly to the left palm rest. That could damage the case of affected units and cause the system to malfunction.

Acer said it would replace the microphone cable "to eliminate any risk of overheating." Users need to check the serial or identification number via the Web site to determine whether their laptops are eligible for the recall. The company did not provide further information about the voluntary recall.
