Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop
While running Internet Explorer or Firefox my notebook will lock up. This happens everynight and is random (does not matter what site I am on). I am unable to access anything to include the Task manager. The only way to get my computer back to life is to power it down. Thanks in advance for any help and or advice!
I would start suspecting a faulty power supply.
When a computer starts up, the chip-set sends a power good signal to the PSU once all the different rails have stabilized at the correct voltages. This usually takes less than a second but until the PSU gets this power good signal from the motherboard it only supplies a minimal amount of current to protect the mother board and CPU in case of over voltage. During this stage the CPU is held in a suspended state and stays there until released by the chip-set.
If the PSU never gets this power-good signal then nothing happens. The fans will spin but that’s about all.
Check with a known good power supply.

Tips for a great answer:
What Web browser are you using? (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox etc.)
If you are using Internet Explorer of Firefox you may want to try to uninstall and reinstall your Adobe Flashplayer.
On your keyboard hold down the windows logo and then press R.
Once the run box comes up type in appwiz.cpl
Go to www.adobe.com and then download the latest version of Flash player (make sure you choose the version for your browser and operating system)
Hope this helps!
