Maybe virus I think. Ctrl Alt. Del it to bring up windows task manager & select processes to see what is using all the cpu. Also have a look at the amount of free hard drive space.. If it is less that a Gigabyte, you might have spooling problems.

Have you got the latest Microsoft updates loaded? That can cause that especially with Google. I have not heard of any conflicts with FireFox. Office is suspect also if the Office updates are missing. Have you enough RAM to run all programmes at once? Check the specifications maybe.
Good luck.

Laptop shuts down on its own


Have you ever cleaned (did a maintenance) during the past six months? As we need to take bath, machines also need to be cleaned. Blow away all the dust and dirt from the motherboard, ad-on cards, connectors, ram, heatsink, cup fan, power supply,etc. and check whether it helps or not. Also run a full system scan using an updated antivirus. Good luck.

My ACER Aspire 9301AWSMi has run out of space on its hard disk. When I checked, the ACER C drive is full, but the ACER D drive ir empty with 33 gb of free space but I don't know how to access it, as I...


you just right click on the d drive and select explore or double click it, there won't be anything in the drive apart from maybe a system back up file.

when in there make a new folder called programme files

If you have a lot of programmes installed on your c drive, then uninsatl them and reinstall again, but when the option comes up to install in a specific folder choose 'D' drive then choose programme files folder, the programme will then be installed there, but will still put an icon on your desktop as normal.

you can also transfer any video or music to the d drive, just make a folder in the d drive called music and video, select your music you wish to move select 'Cut' then open the folder on the 'D' drive and select paste.

Also run this free programme to clear your system up

Hi j0shuatsb,
Acer like many other manufactures seem to design their system to fail or have issues just after their 1 year warranty is up. Like other Microsoft windows operating systems, when you receive an error message that you're memory is full. This does not mean you have run out of RAM = memory. You're notebook can only run a max of 4GB of memory. The error message refers to hard disk drive space. Depending on you're operating system, windows will lock out so much drive space so it can move about. All notebooks also have a hidden partition which holds drivers & programs used in combination for running the system restore.
This hidden partition can range in size from 2GB up to 4GB.
This also lessens you're total hard disk drive space. Bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your memory.
What you need is a larger hard disk drive. Notice the Technical specifications from this link:
http://www.acer.co.uk/public/page9.do?sp=page4&dau34.oid=24360&UserCtxParam=0&GroupCtxParam=0&dctx1=17&CountryISOCtxParam=UK&LanguageISOCtxParam=en&ctx3=-1&ctx4=United+Kingdom&crc=512458878
It does not show what size you're SATA hard disk drive is.
Since you are still in warranty, now would be the time to increase you're drive size. On another note, if you're HDD is the standard 160GB than there is an issue with your current HDD.
Please run a full system virus scan.
Suggest you back up all you're personal data on to a DVD & run you're system restore CD including a format to help you regain you're HDD full space. A temporary fix would be to uninstall any non needed programs through Add/Remove programs. This should free up some space. Many Acer programs you do not use at all or need should be the first to go.
