Question about Acer Computers & Internet
My acer travelmate 4050 always hangs with windows xp, when i tried to reinstall winxp it keeps hanging and i noticed that the cpu fan stop and turns on again.
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.

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.
