Question about Acer Aspire M3100 Refurbished Desktop PC - AMD Athlon X2 5600+ 2.8GHz, 3GB DDR2, 500 SATA, DVDRW, Fl
After installing Windows Service Pack 1 my computer starts acting weird. The mouse-pointer shows the computer is busy ALL the time (showing the busy-circle).
Every few hours the mouse and keyboard stop working so I have to restart my computer again.
It also gives errormessages about my NVIDIA card. This is mostly about the nvlddmkm.sys. I have found a solution for this on the internet already and it now seems to work fine.
A few times a day my computer just stops working and restarts. Afterwards it gives an errormessage (the screen says Windows didnt shut off properly etc...).
I've bought this computer with complete installation so I don't have any Windows cd's etc.
I have tried to download some new driver-updates but I don't actually know which one I need. Or what my exact problem is.
The only (quick and good) solution for me is to get rid of the Service Pack. After this my computer works fine again. But ofcourse this isn't a right solution.
Help me please?!
I have no idea what is going wrong but trying updating to Service Pack 2. I found on my computer it runs alot smoother and supports all programs so that might be the solution your looking for.

Tips for a great answer:
Do one of the following:
If you downloaded SP3 from the website, to install it immediately, click Open or Run and follow the instructions on your screen. To install the program later, click Save and download the installation file to your computer. When you're ready to install the service pack, double-click the file.
If you're installing SP3 from the Service Pack 3 CD, insert the disc into your computer with your current version of Windows XP running, and the Software Update Installation Wizard should automatically appear. If this wizard doesn't appear, click Start, double-click My Computer, right-click your CD or DVD drive, and then click AutoPlay.
On the Windows XP Service Pack 3 page, click Next.
Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.
After the installation is complete, click Finish to restart your computer.
If you disabled your antivirus software, enable it again.
