See if you can check the temperature of your system in the bios. Check when you first boot up and after it freezes restart/ go into the bios and check it again. One thing overheating does is freeze up or shut down your pc. Could also be a virus. Also delete all your temp files/ internet temp files too. Check your memory if you don't find the problem here. A good way to control your system resources is to go to start/ run/ type "msconfig"/ enter. Check "selective start up"/ click on the "startup" tab on top right. You can almost safely un-check everything except your AntiVirus software depending on your pc unless you have a lap. Then your would need to leave things like the keyboard closure, touch pad etc. checked. This will take away any doubt that it may be a software conflict or to many programs trying to open at once causing your crash.
Good luck!!!

Very slow, freezes, jams, and is non responsive, I have to take battery out and wait for a an hour before putting battery in laptop, my computer is an acer 2350 travelmate, also when I bought this in...


This sounds like either a hard drive problem, when you power on the laptop there should be an option to enter BIOS or Setup (usually F2) once inside of the BIOS you should be able to run a diagnostic. and that will tell you if there is anything wrong with the hardware. If everything passes that test. you may have some serious Virus problems.

Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.

2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.

These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.

The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.

When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

In this situation it is recommended to conduct a virus scan as well.However, if your Windows freezes up, the best solution is to repair the computer registry.use registry cleaner reg in out
