Acer 5102WMLI laptop freeze

Hello,

The problem I have is that when I log into my xp account the desktop loads up fine, programs and whatnot, but then it just stops responding, and if try to click on anything it beeps once then freezes completely.

But yet if I log onto the guest account theres no problem whatsoever....

Does this mean the problems viral cause my copy of AVG 7.5 free edition doesnt pick anything up....

Please help any advice would be greatly appreciated

    while in guest or safe mode, view you /Document and Settings/"you name"/Start Menu/Programs/Startup. See if there is a shortcut of a program you recently installed. If you have multiple shortcuts try disabling one at a time. Please post back.

Boot up and go to start , select run, and type msconfig and hit enter.

this will be a lengthy process, but click on startup tab and uncheck everything. and then reboot and see if this still happens.

If it stops locking up then you just need to start the process of checking each one until you find the program that is causing your problem. you will need to check a box, apply and then reboot. Use google to research items before you check the box and reboot so you can tell what they are and if you need it running at system startup. Antivirus would be a good start to turn back on first!

Good Luck.

Computer freezes / locks up after running a while,


Sounds like it's overheating. Check to make sure your graphics card cooling fan and CPU cooling fan are working. If they are add some case fans. Get a can of compressed air and clean out all the vents and fans. You can also use a vacuum with a hose attachment to clean it.

You cannot log into your accounts? Try going into the one account you can log into, and removing the passwords from the other accounts in the "Control Panel"

For windows Xp Try
  1. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
  2. Click on the User Accounts link.
    Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, double-click on the User Accounts icon.
  3. In the pick an account to change area of the User Accounts window, click on your Windows XP user name.
  4. Choose the Remove my password link.
  5. In the text box on the next screen, enter your current password.
  6. Click the Remove Password button to confirm that you'd like to remove your account password.
  7. You can now close the User Accounts window and the Control Panel window.
  8. Now that your Windows XP account password has been deleted, you will no longer need to log on to Windows XP when your computer starts. Windows will now load all the way to your desktop automatically.

Acer Aspire One D250-1042 shows desktop wallpaper but won't load


Start by logging on as the Administrator so you can check the Task Manager and find out what Application or Process is monopolizing the system.

If the system is still unresponsive boot into Safe Mode. (Press F8 before the Windows startup screen appears.) If everything is fine in Safe Mode type MSCONFIG at the Command Prompt and start disabling features until you find the culprit.

Last resort, buy or borrow an external USB CD/DVD drive and use it to reinstall Windows.

Important: Reinstalling will ERASE the hard drive.

Desktop theme changes at startup


That's not supposed to be a problem... When you log in to your account windows loads your personal settings, as well as other programs, so it's supposed to take time. Windows probably has the theme set on default so it would show that while your settings are loading. That or you've got a virus... But... if you think your computer is unusually slow then that's a different problem. Try cleaning up your hard disk space and doing other sorts of stuff, like scanning for viruses to make it run faster.

Acer Aspire 5102WLMi,Mouse&Keyboard&USB is gone :( Hi, My Laptop had a problems with booting (didn't recognize the hard drive) but after many restarts it was booting pretty well; However sometimes when I am working on Windows XP the hard drive was acting like suddenly disconnected, it was resulting disk write errors or blue screen; It was not so bad,but sometimes it was happening. Later, after a Blue Screen, it booted but the keyboard and the trackpad was not working; The USB ports also weren't working since I've connected external USB keyboard and mouse but they did not respond either. After I noticed that the keyboard don't work at all since I can't enther the BIOS configuration; It continued to boot SOMETIMES but the keyboard worked only for few seconds that I've been able to enter the BIOS(also only SOMETIMES). Since my warranty is over, I gave it to a repair shop and they told me that the ATI chipset is gone and they don't have any to replace it; I find it on eBay and I hope it will arrive tomorrow. However I noticed another strange thing: if I hit the laptops case in certain place(right to the trackpad) the laptop power off;It also power off if it is rised up quickly enough. Because of my curiosity I disassembled the laptop to see if there is anything that could cause a such problem I noticed that the South Bridge chipset is heating enough to burn my hand in only 2-3 seconds and don't have anything to cool it; Could this be a symptome of a problem with the south bridge? If you have any ideas or suggestions on the problem please write;
