Startup problems and blurry music

After working with it for a certain time, I get startup problems .... verrrry slow startup and missing some drivers and at the same time the sound gets blurry.

After re-installing everything works normal, again for a certain time, after that everything the same happens again and again.

My Acer works with an IDE drive

    As I already wrote to computerrep, the problem is not that common.

    I know reasonably much about computers, all drivers are the latest, all updates of windows are installed, BIOS had a new upgrade, no cookies, virusses or whatever.

    I red about this problem on the Internet but lost the URL and can't find the explanation again. It has something to do with a certain incompatibility of the chipset on the motherboard and the IDE drivers.

    Acer only wants to replace the motherboard (I can better buy a new laptop).

    Thanks,

    JC

    Hi djnick989,

    I'm certain I found an issue on the internet, but I can't find it anymore, I found it by searching on IDE problems Acer or something like that, on Google. But, I know stupid me, lost the URL and can't find it again.

    Can you or somebody else ?

    Thanks,

    JC

    The problem is not really solved. After a few days it happend again.



    This time I deleted the Atapi controllers using "run devmgmt.msc" and
    let Windows install them again. Problem solved !!! We'll say for
    how long.



    And by the way, there are no cables in an Acer Aspire !! The hard disk is plugged in right-on the motherboard IDE connector.



    We'll see what happens next. It seems that if this solution
    doesn't work out definitively some writing will have to be done in the
    registry.

I would recommend you for format the hard drive before you reinstall the operating system...go to microsoft website to get all the necessary update for your computer...and also to make your computer startup fast you can disable all non microsoft driver and also startup items...click on start run and type msconfig...then click under services..click on hide all microsoft items and disable all after that...then click under startup and disable all..that should allow the computer to run faster...let me know what the outcome is...

My computer is unresponsive or very slow nearly all the time now


When was the last time you ran disk clean up, scanned your pc for spyware and virus and finally defragmented the disks. Doing all three of these could have a big impact on the speed of it. Run all three in the order above.

Sound problem and slower


At 53% your cpu is working too hard. Turn off unecessary startup programs. You can do this through msconfig.Turn off the "C" drives indexing. Check for conflicts in device manager. Make sure that you have the correct and updated sound driver for your audio card.
