    I have an Acer Aspire 5100 that get's really hot after using it for a while - 30 -45 minutes I'd say. You can feel the heat by touching the bottom left below the keyboard - or touching the bottom of the laptop which can be scolding hot.

    Is there anyway to get this to cool down? I feel like this isn't normal.

    A blast of canned compressed air (available from computer parts shops) up the fan exhause vent should help, by dislodging accumulated dust clogging the CPU fan.
