    About time. I'm still waiting for the lid to be blown off this whole sorry affair. So far its "run the fans at full speed and pray". The parts are still defective. Its you the consumer that will be screwed by this.

    Still waiting to hear from Acer what they are going to do about mine.

    The fans certainly are not running at full speed on my XPS 1530 after updating to the A09 BIOS. I don't think they're even on at all other than a brief spin up every now and then in standard use. When gaming things might be a bit different, but I've not got it for gaming.

    isnt it 6yrs? defective goods? Its been a while since i had to beat barclaycard into submission to refund me for my nforce1 motherboard exploding with bad caps.
    Trading standards were a fat lot of good back then.

    Ive already had the mobo + graphics card replaced on my XPS M1330, and this was before all the widespread publicity of them failing had come out. Hmm nice to know I really wasnt the only one. I wonder if im still covered under the extended warranty even though mines been repaired once already?
