I sense heating issue!! Lower down the FSB i notch from the bios and it should stop conking out.

You can also try checking the event log in event viewer (eventvwr.msc in run command) and see what the last instance was before the pc rebooted. If its a driver update it.

Try increasing the virtual memory or paging file.

If you need steps let me know.

I hope this helps!

Acer aspire, windows 7, frequently hangs and crashes. Perfmon shows virtually no free memory (<100 Mb) with kernel non-paged memory at 75% of total memory (4096 Mb) available. CPU is idle. Any idea

Something consumes too much memory.
1) If you are running "memory demanding" applications, this might be the case
2) If you have caught some malware, that might be the case as well
3) You might have to check how much virtual memory you have allocated to your system and in case it is low, try to increase it!

First of all, check if there is/are aplications (and what they are..) which consume memory...

Can i run new ati radeon 512mb video memory with 5.0 shader card on acer ACER AST690-U-P925A

1) How much Ram Memory do you have installed? If I have the spec's right, your motherboard's maximum amount of Ram Memory is 2GB.
(PC2-5300 would be best, but the amount is what matters, not the 'speed')

2) What is the Maximum Wattage for your Power Supply?
Takes power for each hardware component in the computer.
Motherboard, Processor, Ram Memory, Harddrive, Optical Drive/s, Graphics Card, etc.

When purchasing a graphics card, this is one of the minimum system requirements you need to know.

Spec's I looked up indicate a 300 Watt power supply.
This is the problem. That, and power supply's Acer uses are low quality.

If you had at least a 400 Watt power supply, you could use this,

Slap that game around, and make it bark.

You could also run this if you had the above Power Supply,

No. It does not matter if you are using DDR2 Sdram ram memory, and the graphics card has GDDR5 graphics memory.
A graphics card runs independent of the system resources.

My acer x3400 is 1 month old and it keeps freezing. The only way to fix it is to switch if off completely and restart. It has Macafee security pre loaded.

There could be several causes to random lockups:
  1. Hardware issue
  2. Drivers
  3. Application conflicts
Things you can try:
  1. Run system diagnostics. Most systems now have built in diagnostics that can be run to see if there are hardware issues with the system. (I'm not familiar with newer Acers, but I expect that there should be some Acer tools on the Programs menu, or check your owner's manual.)
  2. Download and install the latest BIOS revision, Chipset utility and Video drivers from Acer's support website, even brand new, it may have been in the box up to 6 months, and there may have been new releases for issues discovered since MFG.
  3. Windows has some tools to help you check out conflicts. Start, RUN , MSCONFIG, (Or Msconfig on the search line of Windows 7 then right click if on the menu above, and run as administrator) this will open the Microsoft System Configuration Utility. You can disable startup items that may be causing conflicts (Simplest way is uncheck all items on startup tab and reboot, see if issues go away, if they do, then go back to MSCONFIG, add tip 1/2 of items back, reboot and see if issues return. If they do, issue is in top 1/2, uncheck 1/2 of items checked, reboot. Keep of this process of 1/2s till you isolate the problem items and leave it unchecked.
  4. If your system did not come with an active antivirus, then install one has several free active antivirus applications, pick one,(I use AVAST) and install it an run a scan. You can also try Malwarebytes anti-spyware application (You can use it in addition to an antivirus)
  5. If issues persist, try removing one memory module, run the system, see if anything changes. If not try the other module by itself. If issue only occurs with one module, then it is likely defective.
  6. If issues persist, contact Acer support as system should be under warranty.

It comes as part of the package when you bought it.
It's already on the hard drive. Acer recommend you make a recovery disk before you start using the machine.

This is from Acer's Website.
