This can be because of virus infection, there are so many applications on your start up and low virtual memory.
But my best suggestion is for you to run a virus scan on your computer so it can detect viruses, worms and malware that you get in surfing the internet or by just sharing files. If this will not work you need to re-install your OS so your computer would be like brand new.

Cant get channels even after channel scan. all snowy screens except channel 3 which is fish swimming around.


Go in the menu and make sure the antenna setting is set to AIR and not CABLE before you start the scan. If that doesn't fix your problem then something with the main board is the problem

Runs slow,the entire laptop


Step 1:
Hangs When Idle for a Long b> Normally your computer will turn on a screen saver or enter sleep mode after a certain period of idle time, to protect your monitor from suffering a "burn in" of an image that appears on the screen for extended periods of time. This also helps to save electricity during periods of inactivity. Vista owners report via Internet tech help forums a seemingly rampant "bug" that causes the machine to freeze after being left idle for long periods. No single factor seems to cause this, and instead requires troubleshooting and trial and error to find a fix that works.

Screen Saver Failure
When your computer freezes after a long idle period, it could be due to a malfunctioning screen saver. Turn your screen saver off, by clicking "Start" and then "Control Panel." Under "Appearance and Personalization," click "Personalization" and select "Screen Saver." Select "None" under the screensaver drop-down list and hit OK. Pay attention next time your computer goes idle for reappearance of the problem. b> Power Saving Options b> Windows Vista provides users a way to select how their computers behave after sitting idle for a certain amount of time. In many cases, the hard drive and monitor are instructed to enter sleep mode or even shut down after they've been idle for a specified time frame. To check or alter your settings, click the "Start" button and then "Control Panel." Under the System and Maintenance icon, click "Power Options." Under this tab you can change the amount of time before your system goes to sleep, and the actions it takes after reaching the idle time. Malware b> When mysterious things begin happening to your computer for no apparent reason, there's a good chance a malware program is behind it. Malware are nasty, hidden programs that download themselves onto your computer to cause havoc and even steal your personal information. These invaders monopolize your CPU, clog your RAM, and generally make using your computer unpleasantly slow and frustrating. Their presence can affect everything from program operation to operating system functionality. Always update and run malware protection software regularly to keep these pests out of your computer. b> Update Windows and BIOS b> Your computer's operating system and BIOS files are responsible for proper operation and functionality. Over time, these files can become outdated, requiring patches, fixes and other updates to correct compatibility and security problems in your computer. Microsoft provides regular updates for its Vista operating system to correct reported problems. The BIOS in your computer is programmed into the motherboard, so the board's manufacturer may have an update available for your version. In many cases, the brand that sells the computer may offer a link to the BIOS update, so check with Microsoft for any updates available. b> Too Many Processes b> Your computer will register as "idle" if you haven't used it, even if you have programs open on the screen. After a certain amount of time, the system will send the data you were working on to the RAM as the system settles into sleep mode. When trying to wake the system after this idle period, it may have a hard time resuming the programs that are open, causing a freeze. Close down any program you are not actively working in to save the CPU from unnecessary work, and lessen the load placed on the RAM when it's left idle. right mouse click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications if you see something running that should not be running select end now you might even uninstall that specific program if its no longer needed also in the processes tab see whats ticking over in the background might be a virus or malware.

It is running so slow!! It pauses and screen fades to light color! I cannont do my work!! Help!!


This could be for a couple of reasons, 1) you have a virus causing your laptop to crash or 2) you have a faulty Hard Drive.

Try downloading and running Hit Man Pro (an anti-virus software) that should clean up any viruses you have, download it here:

Run the scan and remove and viruses it finds and reboot the computer...see if this makes any difference, if not, try booting up in the recovery partition and repairing Windows.

Let me know if this helps

Acer Aspire 5535-5050 only starts in "safe mode"


when you get to safe mode try to do a system restore to a date that the computer worked............on xp it will give you a screen to enter safemode with yes or no options ........choose no to go diorectly to system restore...............if not xp look for system restore in the system tools folder on start menu or in control panel............the screen saver error is most likely because you are in safe mode.

How do I get rid of screen savers I have one with underwater,fish swimming,bubbles and behind that one I have a Halloween on with a black cat, bats,etc.


If your are running Windows XP you have have several options. USE OPTION 3 ONLY if you are comfortable working with system files and as a last resort.

  1. Open your "control panel" > "Display". This will open your "Display Properties" window. Click the screen saver tab and set your screen saver to "[None]" This setting will not put your monitor into any screen saver mode.
  2. Open your "control panel" > "add or remove programs" usually a downloaded screen saver will appear in this list, find the appropriate file/screen saver you wish to remove & click remove. If you wish to permanently remove the screen savers.
  3. I strongly suggest you do full back up of your system or at minimum create a "Restore Point" BEFORE you do any of the following suggestions!!! You could also search for the screen saver files. Click "Start" > "Search" This will open the "Search Results" Dialog window. look in your local hard drive where XP OS is installed. This usually is your c: drive. In the "All or part of the file name:" box enter "*.scr" this will give you a list of screen savers in your "C:\WINDOWS\system32" folder. Be VERY CAREFUL working in this file!!!! If you delete the wrong file your OS System may quit working properly or altogether! I am not sure if a downloaded screen saver has the file extension ".scr", I think they do. Maybe someone else could clarify that for both of us.
GOOD LUCK!!!

How do I take off screensavers? I have an underwater screen with swimming fish, bubbles, etc. Window;s Vista and behind the fish I have a Halloween screen with black cat, bats, etc. How do I get my screen...


Right click on your desktop (not on a file/folder) and select "personalize".

There will be 2 categories you should look at, "screen saver" and "desktop background". Change the settings to what you desire and you should be done.

Watch as your monitor fills with water and real 3D fish begin to swim around the screen you were just working on!
Features:

-Real time 3D fish that don't just swim back and forth, but towards you and away from you, up and down. Like real fish!
-Uses realistic 3D fish models, not just flat 2D images like other screen savers do!
-Dymanic underwater lighting. So if the surface of the water ripples, so does the refracted light!
-Download additional fish with ease! The registered version lets you download fish right into the screen saver from the --Settings screen on the Mac OS X version, and from the website for Windows. It couldn't be easier!
-You can select the background you want! From your wallpaper or a random image (jpg, png or gif files), as well as the option to capture the current screen.
-Select between warm and cold, salt water fish, and fresh water fish, or mix them all together! Remember virtual fish can all survive in the same virtual water!
-The fish's eyes move, so they now look around as they swim across your screen.
-Background Hum/Bubbling sound for that real aquarium atmosphere.
-Many options so you can customize it to your liking. With the full version, you can have as many as 40 fish swimming around at once, as long as your CPU can handle it!
