Remove AVG and see if that corrects the problem.
If it does your issue is with AVG .. try another
antivirus tool.

Why my acer 5633 stop working and mouse and all comand stop working and I had to stop with power buttom?


It may have been a software error (freeze-up) or hardware error.
Try starting the computer in Safe Mode and run a full virus/malware scan. If it freezes during that, force a shutdown again by holding down the power button for several seconds. Then sparay compressed air through the air vents on the side, rear, and bottom of the laptop. Do NOT shake the can of compressed air before spraying. You can buy a can of compressed air at any computer store or office supply store.
You can also run a test on the computer's memory to see if there's a faulty memory module. Check your Help & Support file for how to run Windows own "Memtest86".

Mouse frozen on acer laptop and no working ports to use usb mouse???


Not sure if this has been solved for you, but this is what I would do,try to start the computer in safe mode, don this by hitting the F8 key just after the initial start up, choose with networking to enable internet connection and see if the mouse pad works, if it does work you have conflicting programmes that are stopping the mouse and usb ports from working, download from acer the appropriate driver for the operating system you are using and install.
I have provided a link to the Acer site for you below, here you can choose the operating system you are using and approriate drivers for your lap top, alternatively if the problem persists you could do a complete restore, info on how to do this is on the Acer web page

I do hope this helps. cheers

My Gigaware ubs mouse keeps looking up, how do I stop this?


You should try replacing the batteries in the unit, if it still freezes after that, try unplugging and replugging the wireless receiver. If it still freezes, try it on a separate PC. If it freezes still yet on a different computer, then you know the mouse has a hardware problem and should be replaced. If it doesn't freeze on the other PC then you will need to reinstall the software for the mouse on your main computer.

Acer Aspire 5610 freezes when loading when it starts up


assuming that u r a professional,
try open in the safe mode..press F8 rapidly/briskly while booting up..
often happens due to cpu over heating and or software corruption..check if not too dusty..
listen for any noise emitting(eg. 'tik tik' or 'kirr kirr') by the hdd..
if window opens up in safe mode..check the size of virtual memory..try increasing..
unload some unnecessary software..
do a through virus scan using a licensed and updated antivirus (i prefer avg/kaspersky)..
download, install n run microsoft kb890830..
if windows is not loading at all..reinstall os..probably ur ram/hdd is faulty or small in size..replace with a standby n see..
the above often take place with some error message(s)/blue screen..
but if there's no such displaying, esp if hangs/stops/power off during installation, it may b caused by the main/mother board or even the battery..
..contact ur system admin/vendor....

yes upgrade the RAM you may have too much opening on the task bar. Try running MSCONFIG from the RUn command and remove most of the programs by unticking the box See if reducing that area improves the situation But a RAM upgrade will do it just as well

My 12 mth old compaq wf1907 computor freezers up from time to time. mouse still darts around but activates nothing. i have turn off and start again


Hi buzan, the model number you provided is your Compaq montior. That's ok though.
Computer freezes are usally generated by software. Suggest you de a few things.
1. You can run windows system restor back to a date the pc did not freeze.
2. Run a full system's virus scan. (make sure your virus software is up to date). Anti-virus software subcription no longer valid?

3. Your windows needs cleaned. Download a free cleaner. Click the next link.
