Inleiding

Over time, your Acer Aspire 5100 laptop’s fan may stop working. Laptops without working fans may overheat, damaging internal hardware such as the CPU, hard drive, and motherboard. You may have a broken fan if your laptop regularly feels hot or crashes, your fan makes abnormal or no noise, or your vents lack airflow. If these problems occur, you will need a replacement fan to keep your laptop regulated and running smoothly.
