Microphone cable overheat.

If you're the owner of an Acer Aspire notebook, you may be targeted for a recall.

Acer has issued a voluntary safety recall of certain notebooks manufactured before September 15, 2009 due to overheating concerns.

According to Acer:

The affected units are Acer Aspire models AS3410, AS3810T, AS3810TG, AS3810TZ and AS3810TZG manufactured prior to September 15, 2009. In the affected units the microphone cable may overheat when extreme pressure is applied repeatedly to the left palm rest. As a result, the unit̉³ case may become deformed and the system may malfunction.

Acer has voluntarily instituted a safety recall program to proactively replace the microphone cable in the affected units to eliminate any risk of overheating.
