I have an Acer TM 632. Same problem. I had someone take a look at the DSDT file
a while back and apparently the fan isn't controlled by ACPI, or something
like that. I don't recall what the exact problem was. But I do remember
fan + ACPI == not quite perfect. Ultimately my fan filled with cat fur and
various other gunk and had to be replaced. It's much quieter now, but it
still goes off on a fairly regular basis.
