Acer has announced that it is to recall several of its laptop lines after serious overheating issues arose in some models.
The affected laptops are from Acer’s Aspire line, and the Chinese manufacturers have recalled the following model numbers; AS3410, AS3410T, AS3810T, AS3810TG, AS3810TZ and AS3810TZG.
The issue has come from a wire leading to the internal microphone, which runs under the area where users would rest their palms. Although no injuries have been reported, Acer has said that it had gotten complaints from at least three customers.
The company has asked that users should stop using their laptops, and if necessary, contact Acer who will offer free repairs for all affected customers.
