Frozen Harddrive I seem to have a frozen hard drive. It is in a power save mode or something. I have tried to move the mouse and or unplugged the computer altogether, and yet nothing. Please help, as I do not want to have to send this computer away for two weeks to be repaired if I can do something else. Thanks, Ryan

Ha Ha, Well Ryan I'm not laughing at you but the problem. The cure is the Software. More times than not your Windows System is screwed up right from the start, Litterally. You need to install a fresh copy of Windows on your system or what ever system you use. If that don't work than you have to format your hard drive and install a new Windows, Its in the Boot process where your computer can't read your hard drive anymore, Insert your windows disk turn your computer off and back on, follow instructions. Good Luck.

First make sure is not the computer frozen, by pressing the Windows key on keyboard, and if the menu comes up then is not frozen. Next, if not frozen move the mouse to another USB port, if frozen restart the computer by pressing and holding power for 5 seconds.

My acer 15.6inch the cursor is frozen wont move


Hello,

Which mouse are you using? Is it the integrated mouse or the USB mouse?

If you are using the USB mouse, then try checking if it's plugged in correctly.

If it's your integrated mouse, then restart the computer and when it's up. Try moving your mouse. Restarting it usually does the trick.

If restarting it won't fix the problem, then restart and boot to safe mode. While restarting, tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. Highlight safe mode by using the arrow keys and hit enter. When you are in safe mode, try moving your mouse. Works or not - update the mouse driver. You can use RadarSync. If no go, then you might need to do a system restore. If worse comes worst, do a complete operating system reinstallation.

I hope this helps!

The mouse or arrow of my pc stops and i have to restart my pc again.


Hello,

Confirm if your PC is frozen, or if the mouse has stopped working by pressing the WINDOWS key on your keyboard. If the mouse has frozen, pressing the windows key will bring up the start menu. If it does not open, then the Operating system is frozen. Try opening your DVD / CD-ROM device. When it opens, the PC is not frozen.

If the Operating system is frozen, then most likely you have a Hard Drive problem, extreme Hard Drive fragmentation or corrupt system files causing this.

Frozen keyboard & mouse on Acer Notebook


You may have a motherboard failure problem. I would ask you to check the drivers and update them but will be hard to do if you can't get past load screen. You best bet may to get a copy of system recovery and boot pc with the disk installed. Wipe computer completely clean and reinstall windows.

Try putting the computer into safe mode by shutting down the computer. Turn the computer back on. At beginning of the boot process press and hold the f8 button and select safe mode from the menu.

When the safe mode is done booting up, try moving the mouse around. If it works, restart the the computer under normal Windows startup procedures.

My Nomad zen xtra 40gb is stock !!!


It sounds like the hard drive may be damaged. Have you tried to put it in recovery mode?

Put a paperclip in the reset hole while holding down the play button until you see the screen go to recovery mode. Then try the format option; this will erase all your files but it will tell you if you need a new hard drive.
