    Thanks oldnovii for trying,but I should have included that I have Vista home premium.,not XP. I bought this computer with vista downloaded on it,and have no disc( its legal ) So I'm not really sure if its the computer or Vista that is causing the freezing problem???

No prob, gotta take care of dogs and make dinner for wife before she gets home from work but I'll get back to you. Thanks for the info. Never thought thought it wasn't legal. Stupid manufacturers also give a sticker with your Win key but never the cd. ERRRRggghhh!

You can go to http://www.xpmedic.com and download xp medic for free and I would advise that you also go to http://www.registrypatrol.com and download registry patrol for free. These will check your registry for errors and make sure your system doesn't have unnecessary programs running taking up your memory and cpu usage. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, don't rate yet. Just add a comment and I'll be happy to help you further. Thanks.

    I don't know what anti-spyware anti-adware you use if any but it is a must have. You should use more than one because none of them catch everything. Here are two good ones and free. Just download, make sure to update your definitions weekly and run them both at least once a week:



    Spybot:Search & Destroy - http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index...



    AdAware - http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/ad_a...

    Just wanted to check, were you doing different things when this happened? Does it just seem to be random? Have you update any drivers lately and then it started happening? BTW that guest was me. Answer these, b back. Thanks.

Go to http://www.download .com and look for a freeware version of a drive cleaner/registry cleaner. Try to find one that will remove spy ware and other attacks like worms, trojans etc.
You may have to download two different programs to completely clean your computer.
Also try getting ram memory recovery/defragment program, that is if you don't have more than 512 mb of ram memory.

Get in to bios acer aspire AST180-ED400A


First shut your computer off. Wait a few seconds (to allow the hard drive to stop spinning) and start the computer again.
Start repeatedly pressing F2 while the Acer logo is displaying. Press it once, wait a second, press, it again, wait another second, and repeat this while the Acer logo is displaying until you see the bios setup screen.

HOW to tget to bios acer aspire AST180-ED400A


Immediately after pressing the power up button, start repeatedly pressing F2 while the Acer logo is displaying. The Bios setup screen should appear. If you press F2 too soon, the keyboard may not have initialized yet. If you press it too late, Windows will proceed to launch. Press it once, wait a second, press, it again, wait another second, and repeat this while the Acer logo is displaying until you see the bios setup screen.

This is standard approach with most Acers. That said, some laptops may defer to either Ff being the key to press or CTRL+ALT+EXC. Such would be entered as the above mentioned F2. Your Aspire appears to be a desktop and I suspect F2 will suffice.

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya Van Pham.

I have published a guide that deals with this very topic, it is entitled How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?
You also may want to see the following guide entitled, How to Remove the Side Panels of My Computer Chassis!!!

Basically you will need to remove the CMOS battery found on the mainboard for a few seconds and then reinsert it again.

Take care!
