Acer Aspire laptop freezes when fan turns on

Specs: Windows 7
My Acer Aspire 5745 freezes when I have it plugged in and the fan comes. I'm assuming that when plugged in there is too much heat generated. Is there a way to fix this? Any help would be apperciated! Thanks

Make sure the laptop has adequate ventilation - blow the dust out of the passages, and never use a laptop on a lap without something hard under it. Maybe use a cooling pad underneath.

I will have to try a cooling pad. My laptop is on a hard surface. Is there any other possibilities...?

First I would try to diagnose the problem. There are free system utilities that will monitor the temperature of the components. Verify that excess heat is driving the problem.
