Acer 6200 Locks up

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.

My hp 2530p locks up when i try to use video on firefox - You tube, BBC sport website and any others. Its done this since i recieved it brand new, any ideas?

Hi there,


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

Uninstall Flashplayer


Go to and then download the latest version of Flash player (make sure you choose the version for your browser and operating system)


Hope this helps!

Acer notebook aspire belonging to a friend wont go online or let him do anything says firefox is still running and needs to beclosed but when it is closed it still wont do anything.

I would try to 'restore' the computer to an earlier date when it did logon to the Internet, and install the latest version of Internet Explorer rather than Firefox. Try to restore to a date that was before Firefox was installed and go from there with installing a current browser.

If you need help on this, look up 'restore' on the 'help' menu on the 'start' menu.

Good luck with this repair.

I have an Acer 3000 notebook thats having problems with the wireless. It says that it is connected to the wireless but it won't open any webpages in the Firefox browser.

Does it open all the webpages in Internet Explorer? If it does....Firefox has plugins you have to install, or what you call addins. I found that you have to instalkl ava, shockwave, flash palyer all over again for firefox, so see what plugins it needs to stay connected with Firefox. If this happenned suddenly, you can also try uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox.

Acer one aspire when you go to internet explorer it beeps and then locks up

I'd start with disabling all toolbars and addons for IE.

Start > Control panel > internet options
uncheck 'Enable third party extensions'

If IE still locks up, try opening a site from the 'run' command.
Start > Run..

First stop I would make is to get spyware/malware removal product and scan your machine. would be a good one to start out with.

Acer Aspire Notebook won't play videos

try these in any order. Try different browser(firefox,safari,ie), update firmware on router, make sure you have the latest codecs downloaded. I think it is probably the router a friend had the same thing happening and after doing everything including reinstalling windows it was just the router needed updated.
