    start your computer in a safe mode by pressing f8 key, if it starts then check the start up files of your system, it might be due to some virus activity, remove unwanted start up programs from your system.

Intermittent Blue Screen - dumping physical memory to hard drive

Did the battery go flat and shut it down?? If so you may have corrupted a fle in the registry.
Start the laptop in safe mode, click on "start windows with last best known configuration" Reboot, if same problem, try switching off all "startup programs" by typing in the "run" box "config" and un- ticking all boxes, If that fixes it then one of those programs is causing the fault.
Simply enable one at a time till it occurs / delete / re-install that program.

Click on any program on desk top ie outlook,firefox and no response and mouse quit working and cannot get response from start button,have to power down with on off button

It is possible you have a malicious software on your system.

If you have a security or virus program, see if you can get into that to run it. (use safe mode by pressing F8 right after POST) Select SafeMode and then run antivirus program.

Go into device manager and check that the items were not disabled, if they were re-enable them.

Then shut down your pc normally. Then reboot.
Good luck.

I have bought an Acer Aspire X 3200-9650 desk top PC from Pixmania. It has come with no Instructions/user guide or recovery disc and driver disc. I certainly need the insruction/user guide if i have to...

google free recovery disk or recovery program for pc..

you can try:
-Start menu
-all programs
-system tools

Follow directions to make a back-up disk. As for drivers.. look at the model of the motherboard and goto acer support and look for the "model" drivers. or motherboard drivers for your acer model

Desk to computer shut down problem

Go into safe mode and then go into MSCONFIG and click on the startup tab. You'll see a bunch of checkmarks in boxes of all the programs that are running. Disable all of them, and then restart the computer and let it go into windows normally. It it boots all the way normally then that means you had something running in the background that was causing windows to shut down and you'll have to figure out which program it was and uninstall it.

Transfering my outlook and emails folders from my old desk to my new acer desk top

No because outlook is an installed program in your older computer so you can't transfer install programs from one hard drive to the next.
