Computer freezes at least once a day

The number on my hard drive is ast180-ua381b. amdathlon64 3800+. I am not very computer savy yet but I do know it shouldn't freeze this much. I just bought it at walmaet in december '07.

Hi,

Computer freezing could either be:
1. hardware caused or
2. software driven.

Things you can try:
a. hardware - if the warranty won't be void, open the case and remove, clean, re-insert the memory. Cleaning can be done with the use of a pencil eraser on the little gold pins of the memory.
You can also try to set the BIOS/CMOS to "Default Settings" to override any enhance settings that might be "just a bit too much" for the system. This could be done by pressing on "Del" (normally in most PCs) immediately after Power ON before the your OS boots and looking for the selection "Set to Default" or something like that;
b. Scan/Clean your PC for any possible virus and/or malware. Free download of some good ones are Avira and Ad-Aware.
c. Streamline your OS configuration and minimize programs running in the background. A couple of suggestions:
c.1. increase your swap file/virtual memory to roughly double your physical memory;
c.2. defrag your main hard drive;
c.3. Trim/slim down your startup files (msconfig);
c.4. select "Adjust for best performance" in your Performance Options (System properties);

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    If problem persists, perhaps you can bring your concern to the attention of Walmart since presumably it would still be under warranty.

    Cheers.

I have an acer aspire AST180 UA381B and I need the system restore disks but they do not carry them anymore. What can I do?


I would suggest you install Linux Mint 10, a free operating system.

Without the restore disks,you would have to buy a new Windows CD. Have a friend burn an ISO image of Linux Mint. Just go to www.linuxmint.com, and there are lots of helpful tips there on how to install. Linux Mint has a similar feel to Windows, so it should be good!

Always get your drivers from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

There are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer supported.

Some manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.

I hope this helps.
