Re: frequent freezing of mouse,and unexpected shut down

The mouse is freezing because, you have either too many programmes running at start up, conflicting drivers, slow start up anti virus programmes, or you may have a virus or trojan/spyware programme running in the background. The shut down could be a processor overheating problem, so check all your vents and fans for clogged up dust and ensure your pc is well ventillated.

Sounds like your system needs a anti-virus issue. Restart the system hitting the F8 key as it begins to start until it the system gives you option of how to start the system scroll down to "LAST GOOD CONFIGURATION THAT WORKED" click on that. The system should start as normal, once it has go to your anti-virus and run that - then go and do a system restore to a point before it began having the freezing problem. This usually comes from movie sites with pop ups do not click on pop up only go to sites you initiate.

My emachine has always had issues being slow sometimes freezing up and not shutting down...n e way I had it less than two years n its been my first computer in years so I did virus scans and all...ok today...

Loud fan noise and heat are symptoms of a dusty machine. Use canned air or a blower and dust it out. You'll want to have the machine open for this.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop has been having trouble with overheating. I used a laptop fan but my 9mo pulled it off the table and broke it. I went through the process of shutting it down after using...

Make sure the cooling fan for the laptop is not obstructed in any way or is not dirty. It's pretty common for a laptop to get plugged with dirt from normal use. Get a can of air and blow the machine out to remove dirt, lint or debris.

You could also have a defective battery, but try cleaning the machine first.

Erratic behavior with Acer Aspire 9300

How about just reinstalling the OS and seeing what happens. If you are running Vista it is most likely just a bad original install. You should have installation discs supplied and you should have been encouraged to make your own reinstall disc when you first run the machine. If you did not then check your handbook to find out how to do it. It will make a disc from the ghost partition on the hard drive. use this to reinstall and take drivers from one of the original discs supplied with machine
