Acer has issued a voluntary recall for some of its Aspire laptops. The affected models include the AS3410, AS3810T, AS3810TG, AS3810TZ, and AS3810TZG. Apparently, some of these laptops are experiencing an overheating of the microphone cable after repeated and extreme pressure is applied to the left palm rest. As a result, the unit case may become deformed and the system could malfunction. To help eliminate the risk of overheating, Acer has issued a voluntary safety recall to replace the microphone cable in the affected units.
All of the affected models were manufactured before September 15th of this year. To see if your unit is one of the laptops that needs service, head on over to Acer's website and enter your Serial Number or the SNID.
