I have an aspiteM3610 withVistaWith almost the same problem from input freezes for about 8 minutes to a total machine freeze and a hang to be followed by a switch-off (by me).
I don't have a real solution but to explore the problem you may take a look at the installed RAM: wilth all of the updates of Windows and services running even 1 GB may be to cramped. So may consider to add two strips of 1 GB. Furthermore I have slowly found out that the USB system has a problem: I can't start up with a logitech wireless mouse and /or an USB drive or al large USB stick in the machine and after connecting them after startup they will sometimes give rise to rather strange problems in the system even bitmap errors in the MFT of a NTFS partition. If this happens too you may try to boot with a PS/s keyboard and even no mouse at first and try it out.
Good luck!

My recorded tv freezes when trying to watch them


The whole thing freezes? As in the mouse or keyboard won't even work?

If it's just the video that freezes and you can shut it off, most likely it's a codec issue. Which is dumb since everything you're using came packaged together in the unit. Installing a third party codec pack would solve this issue.

Though, if you're whole PC is freezing when you try to play a video then I have a few other questions to ask you to narrow the potential problems down:

1. Open up the player that opens automatically when you try to watch something, but don't load a video into it. Did everything still freeze?
2. If not, then open a video file that is not something you recorded from TV, like a DVD or a video clip from the net. Did it freeze then?
3. When it freezes, does it freeze instantly? Or does it run for a little bit then freeze. If the latter is the case, what happens in the time between opening the file and the lock down?

Hi,

You can disable the onboard VGA card in BIOS, to do so
keep on tapping F2 button as soon as you hit the power button, under the CMOS search for VGA or onboard VGA and click Disable.

Will the acer aspire t160 take high density memory? or is it restricted to low density memory only?


You can increase the memory in the system and that will be sufficient to run any operating system or program, i think you can increase it up till 2 or 4 GB.

Acer Aspire t160 issues


ok heres how you remove bios password.

Open the door where the RAM is fitted and remove RAM from the holders. Look for two metal bars (GOLD?) near or between the RAM sockets.
Take a papare clip and short the bars out against each other. Replace the ram close the trap and reboot. That should do it

Usb not found aspire t160


Hi,

i,d check the bios setup. to ensure that USB devices are enabled.
Or that there are no conflicting devices:- My Computer/Control Panel/System/Device Manager.
Also some motherboards, have jumpers to set the USB ports on/off.
Try using a different port if you have 1 available, or purchase an individual PCI-Card with USB Ports On.
