Re: packard bell registration message
There is a solution for this problem, but you have to be very computer orentated to correct it. First look in the programs listing under startup and see if there is a link there for the PacBell auto start when the computer tarts each time it is turned on. If there is a link there right click on it and delete the shortcut from the startup menu. restart the computer and see if it is still there. if so go back and look in the startup menu selection and see if it has reappeared. If it has then you will have to shut off the windows auto recovery option so it will not replace the missing file when the computer is restarted. Now if this does not work, you will have to get someone that is familiar with the registry files. You do not want to go probing around in there or you may just shut down tour computer permanently. A professional will have to go in and search for the file entry that controls the option and then delete the corresponding registry entries. Regards, rcampsr

Some programs need a substantial amount of RAM and in case of computers with smaller RAM, they tend to freeze. Either close some of the running programs or increase the RAM capacity. In every likelihood it should work.
There is a ribbon cable connecting things together. Sometimes they crack. Sometimes they are in the hinge area and may be able to be replaced but would be expensive at a shop and a bit technical. There could also be dirt or a sugar liquid like pop or coffee spilled inside the on/off or hinge switch (a little switch that is pushed when the laptop closes, usually near the jam or could be inside casing.) and this could be causing a short. Probably ribbon cable, may not be able to be replaced! without replacing screen. Here's hoping for you. This is generalized information and not P.Bell specific.. Need more info as to whether is just screen or whole laptop going off/on. Good luck, hope this helps some.
No it is not normal for Win7... it should be the opposite... Win7 Memory Management is better than any other systems. I would do maintenance... clean out temp files and clean and defrag the registry. Glary Utilities works great for that or CCleaner. Then Defrag. Maybe just a false message caused by a bad temp file. If it continues I would have issues with the Hardware and seek a warranty replacement. Side note: turn off or uninstall products on the system you won't use.
I'm assuming you bought this used. It sounds like the computer either didn't have the operating installed properly, the hard drive used to be in another computer and just dropped into this computer without re-installing the operating system.... or most likely that it has a virus.
Your best option in any of these cases is to do a clean install of your operating system. If you were not given a recovery disc you will unfortunately need to purchase Windows.
"Step 4 - Re-installing your software
Call the help desk and ask them to guide you through the
