Question about Acer C7 Chromebook

1 Answer

Random Ad A week ago there has been a random Ad appearing on my computer. It looks like it has a video which disappears and the screen reads "you can skip this advert in 15 seconds" and then starts to count down. This happens a few times a day on any site this screen will appear. My adblock is on but I really have no idea what's happening. Can anyone help?

    I don't know how to edit my post so I'll add it here, the randomly appearing Ad has increased from 15 to 30 seconds.

SOURCE: Acer Ferrari 4005 freezes and does not switch on again easily

When and if it's running, run 'dxdiag' to see if windows reports any sound and video conflicts. It could be the graphic card; as i think(correct me if i'm wrong) that this model has seperate dedicated graphics, other than being on board. I'm assuming all drivers are ok and none of the vga or dvi ports give you any video either. Although the graphics are independent, it's not like a desktop pc graphics agp card, they are; as far as i know integrated in the motherboard, so the board may be the but of your problem, in which case is a replacement worth it or is it within the warranty period.

SOURCE: Random Memory access freezing.

Possibilities read on this pics:

or :

Go to C/windows and look for a folder called Faultlog.txt. Open it and it should display all the faults that have occurred. Post a few so we can see if theres anything in particular thats causing it.
i would suggest that you reboot and get into Windows. Press [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Delete] and click Task Manager. On the Performance tab, it will give you a reading for the amount of processor usage (which should only be a few percent when the system is sitting idle) and another counter for the amount of memory usage (this should be 192Mb, i.e. 196608Kb, or less). Minimise Task Manager.
When your PC starts freezing or looks like it's about to (if you can tell when it's going to happen), then try and bring up the Task Manager window again from the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Has the processor usage shot up? What has happened to the memory usage? You might need to resize your screens so that you have the Task Manager running at the side whilst you continue working - that way, you'll be able to keep an eye on what's going on.
Give us some feedback about your results and we'll try and diagnose it further :)

and please if my solution was helpfull rate it as SOLVED

I have a 2005 and in the last week, a random warning has been appearing, but it flashes off so fast that I can't read it? Is there a screen on the maintenance that shows all previous warnings?

You can have the computer scanned with a diagnostic tool, to see if there are any diagnostic trouble codes stored, most autoparts stores like Autozone offer this service at no charge. Knowing the code numbers and the description will give you some idea as to what the problem may be.

I have a local built Computer that has a gigabyte s-series GA-EP45_DS3R mother board with an Intel core2 Quad processor., it has a MSI NX8800GTS Graphics card. it is running windows 7 and when booted up...

No, the video card is failing and you will have to replace it. The lines disappear in Safe Mode because in there the video chip is essentially bypassed since its driver isn't loaded.

Stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing DELLe152fp

That is the OSD (On Screen Display) system built-in to your computer monitor. Check that when you hit the ON/OFF button on your monitor, that you do *NOT* hit the 'OSD ON/OFF' button.

Most of the time, the OSD will disappear after 10 seconds of "non-use".
