Acer 3003 locks up with audio driver

My Acer was working just fine till recently. Then it started locking up, and getting extremely slow. Thinking it was a virus or something, I reinstalled Windows XP.

It worked just fine till I installed the audio driver, and it started acting the same again.

Is there is way to fix the audio, or is it a part I can replace?

Thanks

    As I said, its a FRESH install.

    So, I did uninstall and reinstall the driver. Only then did the problem it had before resurface.

    I think the audio card is dying. Thats what I want to know, can that part be replaced.

    Thanks

    And I got the driver from Acer's 3003 page, and it had worked for years until about a month ago.

    Well, its locking up all the time now. It may be overheating, or the CPU is dying.

    How can I test the CPU to see if it is ok?

    I'm not afraid to take it apart.

    Thanks!

Internal speed of Acer Aspire One is extremely slow


The problem is that the Aspire One is extremely slow. it was designed to run a Linux operating system not windows. Microsoft just cut down Win 7 to make it work- It just doesn't work well. The only thing that may speed things up is an upgrade to 2GB of RAM. If you already have this then, you will have to live with it. Sorry.

Just bought a acer aspire 3003 off ebay and it has no sound. also I have tried 2 adjust the volume thru the control panel and it says there is no audio device. How can i fix this?


Check for your sound card first. Click "start", click Control panel, double click system, click the hardware tab, click device manager, click the + sign next to (sound, video and game controls),(take not of the maker and model of your card) if this shows a sound card, right click on it. Click properties, check under status. Do you see "this device is working properly" if not, click driver tab and try rollback driver and then update driver. If no sucess take this link to acer and select your audio driver. (This takes you to downloads for the Aspire 3000). Check to see that this matches your sound card(maker and model noted previously), it may have been changed.

Doors not locking (but unlocking is okay).


The only time my doors don't lock with the remote is when a door is open. If your problem is mechanical it wouldn't unlock. Might be a sensor thinking a door is open. Does the other functions with the remote work like rolling the windows down or hitting the lock button flashes the light ? I can't lock my doors from the inside with the remote.

The sound has now become extremely low and distorted


If the problem started recently, you may try the System Restore option in Windows. If this didn't work, uninstall the Audio driver and reinstall it using the driver from your laptop manufacturer's website. Try to download first the driver before doing this.

Keyboard locked during bootup
