Acer Extensa 5430 Hangs

Hi,
Just bought a ACER Extensa 5430 with VISTA premium, and it hangs after going to screen saver. It will also hang after inactivity and will not resume with a mose move or key strokes. Not being familiar with VISTA, I changed all the settings to not go "NEVER" go to sleep or hibernate. Still hangs.... will need to take back to store... unless I can solve this!!

VISTA HAS PROBLEMS WITH CERTAIN GRAPHICS CARDS AND WITH JAVA-SCRIPT -APPLETTS, CHECK AND SEE HOW MUCH MEMORY YOUR COMPUTER CAME WITH, I HAD A CUSTOMER WITH THE SAME PROBLEM AND VISTA DEMANDS A LOT OF WHAT IS CALLED SYSTEM-MEMORY FOR SIMPLE THINGS THAT THE COMPUTER DOES. AFTER UPGRADING THE MEMORY AND THE HARD DRIVE IT STILL PERSISTED SO EVENTUALLY SHE BACK-GRADED TO XP WITH SERVICE PACK 2, BUT IF YOU WANT TO KEEP VISTA GO TO MICROSOFT UPDATES AND SEE IF THEY HAVE A UTILITIES SUITE THAT CAN HELP WITH THIS PROBLEM. KEEP ME POSTED JON T

its quite obvious the system is overheating.

Remove ALL media, DVD, CD, USB. Unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot. Try a system restore/recovery. At boot tap ALT+F-10 repeatedly.

Acer Aspire 5738g hangs


Hi.

I too have also bought the aspire 5738.
Mine was also hanging, eventually i sent it back to acer.
The mother board was replaced as it had a faulty north bridge on it.
If your unit is still in warranty get it done as soon as possible.

Hangs up on the standby,hibernate,and shutdown screens


In my case with an Aspire 4710 it was the old or incorrect chipset drivers from the Acer site.
After downloading the proper new drivers from Intel all is fine.

Laptop Hangs during voice chat.


I’m going to ask you some questions in order to better determine the solution.
Do you have Yahoo IM 8.1 installed which is compatible with Vista (this will also apply to the other software like G-talk, and Skype)?
When you have your software running (Yahoo, G-Talk, Skupe, etc) how much RAM is being used? CRTL-ALT-DEL to Task Manager and Performance Tab, then under PF Usage, tell me how much MB are you using?
Do you get this ‘hang’ with other software?
How many ICONS are in the right-hand corner of the tool-bar?

Windows Vista hangs while browsing


An operating system hanging indicates that either the program you are using, or the operating system itself, has crashed. The easiest way to eliminate hangs is to start up the computer from your Windows installation disc, and then either choose to Repair your installation, Restore the installation or install a new Windows OS.
Your computer came with a recovery option that lets you "reset" or recover to a known "good point". Hold down the "Alt" key and then hit the "F10" key (both at once) to activate the feature, and then follow the on-screen directions.
