Acer announced a recall for some of its Aspire laptops, affected units include AS3410, AS3810T, AS3810TG, AS3810TZ and AS3810TZG laptops manufactured prior to September 15, 2009. The company explains repeated extreme pressure to the left palm rest area can damage the microphone cable, and as a result the enclosure may become deformed and the system may malfunction.
It has come to our attention that certain Acer Aspire Notebooks may overheat under specific conditions. Acer is therefore voluntarily instituting a safety recall for these products.
