The Cpu fan doesn't run all the time on laptops. It only runs when you first turn it on and then runs at different times to keep the temperature down on the laptop to prevent overheating.

If you have a windows boot disk then you can wipe out the hard drive from DOS using the fdisk an the format commands.

If you dont have the boot disk, then make sure your windows XP system disk is clean on both sides, then try to install it again.

If it is still hanging and you know for sure that your XP disk is good, the next step would be to try a different hard drive in your laptop that you know is good.

This sounds like a hard drive problem with the lockups.

If your laptop feels very warm or hot to the touch, then where the vents are on you laptop, blow some canned air into there to unclog the vents.

    Try changing out the memory as well. That can cause lockups during an install to.

If its hanging during install you need to turn virus protection off in the bios. Have a root around in the bios and you'll see it sooner or later, If you need further help just shout.

My acer aspire 4315 hangs during shutdown. windows XP OS


Hi,

This happens when there is a process still trying to work in the back end.

Try to disable most of the applications which get opened by default when windows starts.

Click on start/run/ and type msconfig. Once the window comes up click on start up tab and disable all.

Now try to reboot the system.

Also hope there is no usb device connected at the time of shut down. This would also make xp hang.

Thanks

Acer Travelmate 2420 PROBLEMS :(


Try to turn off automatic updates. Right-click on MyComputer icon, select properties, Click on Automatic Updates, turn off automatic updates. Maybe it's trying to download updates automatically and this will slow down the computer. If that is the problem, you have to make sure you get all your updates manually first and then change back settings to automatically download updates afterwards. Please let me know if this still doesn't help.
