Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

Everything freezes... For some reason, my Aspire One experiences frequent temporary freezes. During internet browsing, I'm about to click on a link when the entire PC comes to a complete standstill lasting between 30 seconds and a minute. After unfreezing, it catches up on the operations I wanted to be performed before I realized it froze. Could the problem be in my torrent program that I'm using (it's kinda less frequent when it's off)?

More than likely.

Go to filehippo.com download and install a programme called Ccleaner.

Once you run the cleaner, got all the web junk of your HDD go to the tools menu, click on the "Startup" option and delete all those programmes you don't want to start when you boot up your PC. I would suggest every thing except virus checkers and firewalls.

This means that you will have to go to your programmes or shortcuts to start any programmes you want to use. It also means that you're not running loads of programmes that you don't need at the time.

When i try to clean-up temp internet files using disk clean-up in hard drive properties it tells me there is an error in the memory dump files


It is better to use your browser to clean-up temp internet files.
For Internet Explorer do the following...
1. while in Internet Explorer
2. click on Tools in either the Menu or Command bar
3. click on Internet Options at the bottom of the pop-up menu
4. on the Browsing history part of the Internet Options window
5. click on the Delete... button
6. on the resulting Delete Browsing History window
7. check-mark Preserve Favorites website data
8. check-mark Temporary Internet files
9. make sure everything else is not check-marked
10. click the Delete button at the bottom of the window
If you want to delete other items, check-mark them prior to pressing Delete button.
If you want to manage Temporary Internet Files click on the Settings button
and set appropriate options in the Temporary Internet Files and History Settings window.
Finally, click OK when exiting to save the changes otherwise click the Cancel button.

Every time I download a video it stops every few seconds


The cause of your problem is simple: your "cache"
memory & "temporary internet files" are nearly full.
This is especially true if you've been watching lots
of videos or playing a lot of games/music.

If you are experiencing either: A) slugglish loading
and buffering, B) "choppy" videos which frequently
start/stop/start/stop, C) the YouTube dotted circle
looking like it might spin for ever, or D) videos that
will sometimes come to a sudden "stop" or freeze,
that is often a sign that your cache/memory is full
and cannot take anymore.

Exit out of YouTube (but not your browser) and do
one of the steps below. Afterwards, shutdown and
reboot. Not only will this "free up" your computer's
memory, everything will be "fresh", and load faster:

Internet Explorer 6:
→ Tools → Internet Options
→ Delete Cookies → OK
→ Delete Files → OK
→ Clear History → Yes
→ OK

Internet Explorer 7:
→ Tools → Internet Options → Delete...
→ Delete files → Yes
→ Delete cookies → OK
→ Delete history → OK
→ Close (browsing history window)
→ OK

Internet Explorer 8:
→ Tools → Delete Browsing History
[. ] Preserve Favorites (leave blank)
[x] Temporary Internet files
[x] Cookies
[x] History
→ Delete

Mozilla Firefox 3:
→ Tools → Clear Private Data
[x] Browsing History
[x] Download History
[x] Saved Form and Search History
[x] Cache
[x] Cookies
→ Clear Private Data Now
Google Chrome:
→ Tools (wrench) → Clear browsing data...
[x] Clear browsing history
[x] Clear download history
[x] Empty the cache
[x] Delete cookies
Clear data from this period: → Everything
→ Clear Browsing Data

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Yahoo login keeps freezing


Does this only happen when logging into Yahoo? A good first step is to clear out your temporary files and cookies.

In Internet Explorer, click Tools and then click the first option, "Delete browsing history." You don't have to delete everything on the list that appears, but make sure to delete cookies and temporary Internet files. Then close the browser and restart your PC and see if the problem persists.

Slow start up


Is this during an install or just the start up of your pc? If it is the starting of your pc you might try running your virus/ adware software on your pc.

clear out your C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory (this is a storage area where files are stored before they are installed). Delete everything in this file, and your problem may be solved completely.
If this does not work, you may also need to clear out your Internet cache (temporary Internet files):
(Internet Explorer)
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Click on Tools -> Internet Options.
3a. In IE6 - Click on the 'Delete Files...' button on the Genral Tab
3b. In IE7 - Click on the 'Delete' button under the Browsing History section of the General Tab.
(Mozilla Firefox)
1. Open Firefox.
2. Click on Tools -> Options
3. Click on the Advanced tab -> Network Tab.
4. Click on the 'Clear Now' button under the Cache section.

- Empty your recycle bin

- Run Scandisk
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Scandisk
3. Select your hard drive. If you have more than one, you should scan each drive individually.
4. Click Standard
5. Check Automatically fix errors.
6. Click Start

- Run Defrag
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Disk Defragmenter
3. Select the hard drive you wish to defrag and click ok.

I hope this answers your question.
Thank you for visiting FixYa for your solutions.

Performance problems/slowdown wtih Internet Explorer 8?!?


Hi,
IE8 runs slightly slower than IE7 due to the fact that it has more built-in security features and additional features. Also, some antivirus softwares and too much unused / accumulated data in the form of temporary internet files and cookies in your PC slow-down the browsing experience.

To clean up temporary internet files, click on the Tools button on the IE toolbar, select Internet Options from the menu which comes up. Then on the General page, under Browsing History section click on Delete button. Then you can select the items which you want to delete, then click on Delete> click on OK.

You can also try Google Chrome browser which is one of the fastest browser. Download link: http://www.google.com/chrome

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks.

MYSPACE.COM IS IN SPANISH. I NEED ENGLISH NOW ! PLEASE HELP !


I would recommend clearing your browser cache and temporary Internet files, then trying to visit the site again.

If you are using Internet Explorer 7.0, go to Tools > Internet Options. On the General tab, in the Browsing history section, click Delete. When the Delete Browsing History dialog box displays click Delete All at the bottom.

If you are using Mozilla Firefox 3.0, go to Tools > Clear Private Data. Click Clear Private Data Now on the Clear Private Data dialog box.
