My Acer Aspire One D257-1679 Laptop Constantly Freezes. Maybe Windows 7 Drivers out of Date and is not compatable.Should I do factory Reset?. Thank you


I just fixed a laptop with windows 7 freezes

windows 7 support has ended
all you need ot do is reduce the number of programs the computer is running

C drive needs lots of free space

if you want to keep the computer ..these things help

first store what you want to keep on to usb sticks
documents ,pictures ,files ,

not on the hard drive

delete all the unwanted items off the c drive
look into the users ..remove "Temp "

go through all the programs on c drive and uninstall
as many non windows 7 and unused microsoft programs and also unwanted computer games and printer drivers
clear all the downloads
clear the memory cache
defrag the c drive
scan for virus and troguns

if using versions of office above 2000 will slow /freeze the pc

windows 7 when released was based as a 32 bit and some x64
window 10 can be uploaded only if window 7 has upgraded to stage 3 but it will be slow
stuff that is X 86 will slow windows 7

Problem on the device driver/ motherboard


Boot under XP, go to Dell's website and download the XP driver for your laptop noting where it is saved. Don't install it, copy it to a thumb drive or a CD. Reboot into Windows 7 and then install the XP driver. You'll get a message that it isn't the correct one but choose install anyway. That chip doesn't fully support AERO in Win 7 but will do most everything you will need. If you want to disable the pointing stick on the keyboard, download the XP Dell trackpad software. That lets you go in and deactivate the pointing stick. I find it annoying.

Have you tried going into Safe Mode? (hit f8 key when the windows logo appears)

select command prompt and first type: chkdsk /f

then do sfc /scannow

else do a windows repair - you won't lose your stuff if your hard disk is not damaged

Computer freezes up randomly about 1x per week, can be in IE, Word, windows life mail, etc. Only way to get rid of it is by cold shut down. Also audio and video can also freeze up, this happens perhaps 3x...


Do you think computer is running hot? computer is freezing up or running slow could be a heat issue.

If it is not then try for updating the bios from dell support website - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=555&l=en&s=biz&ServiceTag=&SystemID=STUDIO1749&os=BIOSA&osl=EN

also try to find out if there is any third party software which you might installed in your computer which is not compatible.

Start menu freezing


This sounds like you may have a virus running up cpu time or a trojan of some sort, try running a virus check Antivir is a good free virus cleaner, also run spybot search and destroy to look for spyware. sometimes viruses attack windows system files to keep you from being able to get rid of them.

POWERS UP BUT THEN FREEZES AFTER ABOUT 4 MINUTES


Need to test and isolate where it exactly freezes? After dell logo, after windows logo or while inside windows? Now, if it only freezes inside windows try to turn off your windows updates and antivirus first and check if still freezes, if yes then try booting in safe mode, reboot system then keep tapping on f8 once dell logo appears. Check if laptop keeps freezing in safe mode. Please let me know.
