Struggling with sound and video stuttering.


Sounds like you have too much invisible crap running in the background. Try these:

hit the windows key and type msconfig in the search bar, click the startup tab and uncheck everything that isn't acer or windows related. Restart computer

download malwarebytes and ccleaner, update and run both. Delete/quarantine all spyware and viruses

click start>control panel>add and remove programs. delete every program that isnt 100% needed. If it wont let you delete, google the program and how to delete it since it's probably spyware.

start>accessories>system tools>disk defragmenter(don't bother if you have an SSD hard drive)

if these don't work try start>accessories>system tools>system restore. restore to a point before you had this problem

PC Tools- Ten Tips to Keep your Computer Running Smoothly


<span style="font-weight: bold;">Computer Maintenance Tips</span><br style="font-weight: bold;" /><br />1. Never, never, turn your computer off with the power switch until Windows has shut down.<br /><br />The one exception to this rule is when your computer locks up and your hard drive is not running (hard drive light is not blinking). In this situation, you can turn the power off without harmful effects to the hard drive. As cutting the power can also result in lost data or Windows files, you should only do this when you have to.<br /><br />Following this rule will prevent permanent hard drive defects caused by the hard drive heads contacting the surface of the drive disc, and it will prevent a host of Windows problems.<br />Whenever possible, recover from crashes by pressing the Ctrl + Alt + Delete keys at the same time. Press them again to reboot your computer.<br /><br />2. I highly recommend that you purchase an UPS (uninteruptable power supply) for your computer. This will keep your computer from crashing during power outages, and will protect your computer from low and high voltage occurrences.<br />An UPS is far superior to a surge protector and will save your computer from almost any type of power disaster. (See #1 above for what happens when your computer crashes.)<br /><br />3. Backup, backup, backup, any data you cannot afford to lose to at least two separate physical drives. So backup data to external hard drives, Zip disks, CD-RWs etc.<br />The time to backup is when you create something you can't afford to lose. Don't wait until tomorrow.<br /><br />4. Run Scandisk and Defragment at least once a month. This will keep your hard drive healthy and prevent crashes. Alternatively, purchase Norton Utilities and use it to keep your hard drive healthy.<br /><br />5. Never unplug peripherals from the computer when it is powered up. Unplugging with the power on can short out the connector socket or the motherboard.<br /><br />The only exception to this rule is if you know a peripheral is "hot pluggable". If you do not know what "hot pluggable" means then ignore this exception.<br /><br />6. Do keep at least 300 MBs of your C: drive free for Windows to use. If you use Windows XP or Vista then you should have 400-600 MBs of free space on your C: drive.<br />If you do not have enough free space you will choke Windows and it will start dumping data to your hard drive, or it will just get really, really, slow.<br />Use the ADD/Delete tool in the Windows Control Panel to delete unneeded programs from your drive.<br />You can also use Cleansweep included in Norton Utilities to clean up your drive. If you do use Cleansweep or another hard drive cleaner, do not delete shared files unless you back them up. The cleaners do a rotten job of knowing if another program uses shared files.<br /><br />7. Do not let a lot of programs load up when you start your computer. They use valuable memory and Windows Resources (Windows internal workspace).<br />All programs in your Windows System Tray (in the lower left of your screen) are running on your computer. Close them if you don't need them or run them and configure them not to load when you boot up.<br />Other programs running in the background can be found by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete at the same time.<br /><br />8. Do use a virus checker regularly. Everyone should use a virus checker. The best type of protection is continuous monitoring from a dedicated anti-virus program like Norton Antivirus.<br />The second best thing is to use is the free online virus checkers such as Housecall provided by Trend Micro.<br /><br />9. If you have a high speed Internet connection you need a firewall program. A firewall program keeps those who want to hijack your computer from gaining access to your system. You really do not want someone else running your computer.<br />I suggest you purchase and run Norton's Personal Firewall program. Your firewall should boot up with your computer to protect it from invasion.<br /><br />Case in point: When I am online 10 hours or more with my DSL connection, my computer is usually attacked by a hacker at least once.<br />Do not think you are safe from hackers!! Hackers use search programs to seek out computers at random. Get a firewall program and use it.<br /><br />10. Keep track of the software disks you receive with your computer and new peripherals. These disks contain valuable software drivers and programs for Windows and are needed when Windows must be reloaded. Keep these disks and your Windows software disks in a safe, dry, place -- you never know when you will need them.

Sort your files and delete those files from D drive which are trash in your thought or simply delete the folder which you selected for the backup, delete completely the folder.

I put my memory card into laptop, message says my card is full, and yet i delete my pics from camera., do i have to delete from memory card also, if so how do i do that.


Did you delete the pictures from the internal camera memory and not the SD card? An easy way to solve this problem would be to insert the card into your computer and open up "My Computer". In here you should see your memory card mounted as a usable drive. Open up the SD card, select everything in it by pressing "Control" + "A" and then hitting delete. This will clean everything off of the card. If you want to save the files from the card first, simply make a folder somewhere on your PC and drag all of the files from the SD card into that folder after pressing "Control" + "A". If you are still getting an error stating your card is full after removing them this way you may need to re-format the card or it may be malfunctioning.

I can not delete a download called,freeride games player. It keeps saying the program is running, that I should close the program, then return to control panel to delete. I have deleted all referance to...


Start the computer in safe mode by pressing f8 as the first screen appears and selecting safe mode.
it will start slower than normal , and when it does , uninstall , not delete the program in question. if you just delete the directory, it will leave junk installed you dont want. Sooo unistall it from it's own uninstall program or from the "add & remove programs" section in the controll panel.

WRITE PROTECTION


There are a number of reasons why you are unable to delete files and you need to be sure that the file is no longer required before you delete it. If a file won't allow you to delete it, it can mean a program on your computer is using it.

However, you can try the following...........

The simple way is to reboot your computer in "Safe Mode." To do this, reboot your computer, as the computer is booting, repeatedly press F8 until the option to select safe mode appears. Select safe mode and allow the computer to fully boot. Safe mode only loads all the critical and vital software to support your operating system and not all the programs installed on your computer. When the computer has booted, look for the file you want to delete and try to remove it. If you are able to delete the file, you can now reboot the computer normally, simply by restarting.

If this does not work a more complicated way of removing the file is to use DOS or Command Mode. This will definitely allow you to delete the file but is tricky if you have not used Command Mode before. Command mode will allow you to delete the complete folder so if there are other files in the folder that you want to keep, be sure to either put them in a different folder or move the file you want to delete into its own separate folder. Using command mode is irreversible so be sure you don't delete anything you are likely to need.

I will call the folder you want to delete FRED, just to identify it. Make a note of exactly where it is located on your hard drive, for example
C:\WINDOWS\Resources\FRED

Restart the computer pressing F8 like you did for safe mode.
This time select 'Command Mode.'
This will open a screen that looks old fashioned and there will be a prompt that will say something like
C:\Documents and Settings\Your_name>

Type del C:\WINDOWS\Resources\FRED
This will delete the folder called FRED which will remove your write protected file.
Then just restart you computer normally, the file will have been successfully removed.

Cant get rid of program


It may have put something into the registry so that it will always download and run on start up. You can try the following to get rid of it. 1) Open the registry editor. (To do this, go to Start -> Run and type: regedit ) 2) Browse to the following location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run 3) Look at all the keys (items) in this folder. The program you are looking for may be listed here. If you find it, make note of where the file is located and delete the file that is mentioned in the key. Then delete the key. This will keep it form restarting after reboot.
