Acer computer keeps crashing


Best thing to try before anything is to run your computer in safe mode.
Make sure the computer is off and not in sleep or in hibernate.
Power the computer on and click the F8 key till you see below image.
Image is from a Windows 7 - Most versions of windows will be the same Or similar. Screen defaults to 640 X 480 in safe-mode!

Choose safe mode with networking. If while running your computer in safe mode and it never blue screens - Then chances are, you have a software, driver or virus issue - Most cases. If your computer continues to crash in safe mode. Your system most likely has a hardware issue. Common: Computer Memory and/or hard drive.

PC Crash and how to avoid it!


For any computers owner, a PC crash is a nightmare come true. However, with the amount of time we spend on our computers each day, we're bound to be inundated with harmful files or identity-stealing attempts. For people who own their own PC, there are plenty of basic steps to take in order to avoid a dreaded PC crash.

Consider putting a lock on your PC. Not literally. Make up a user ID that is unique to you as an administrator and password that can't be figured out easily. If you leave your computer on unattended, make sure you leave it in "log-in" mode, so any attempted usage will require a password.

Install internet security software or an anti-virus software product. These types of programs run regular computer check-ups and update automatically to ward off new attacks. Schedule virus scans at least once a week to check for bugs in far off corners of your computer.

Pay attention to the news. If a worldwide virus outbreak is imminent, give your PC a rest for a few days if possible, or try to limit your Internet usage.

First and most important of all, you have to get a reliable good registry cleaning software which will help you in maintaining your computer by removing unwanted junk files messed up in your registry that causes errors and other problems in your system. This is very important because most of the problems mentioned above are the results of unhealthy registry. Hence, to keep it in top condition, get a premium registry-cleaner. This has been well proven to help prevent PC from freezing or crashing among many users.

Avoid downloading files, programs, videos, MP3, and software from unreliable sources. One of the most common methods to get your computer infected by spyware is to download free software which is usually bundled with spyware.These malicious programs are responsible for almost 90% of all computer crashes globally. Therefore, avoid them as much as possible by being extra cautious of files downloaded from the internet. Furthermore, avoid visiting unreliable sites such as adult sites which are generally flooded with a lot of spyware the moment you browsed through their web-sites. Hence, try to limit your internet surfing on credible sites.

Still there are many ways for you to prevent PC from freezing or crashing, but the aforementioned tips will surely help you avoid the things that generally causes such computer problems; as well as help keep your system in its optimum health and performance.

Many people in contemporary times are heavily dependent on their computers to function. They use their computers for almost any task imaginable from making business presentations to watching movies. There are literally thousands of things that you can do with your computer. You can use it to gather research materials for a school paper, read the news, communicate with friends and loved ones from all over the world and you can even use it to shop for clothes or shoes online. In fact, most people do not realize how dependent they are or their computers until things go wrong. Imagine this scenario. You are late for school and you still have to print your paper that is due today. As you boot up your computer, an error message pops up and your computer suddenly crashes. A PC crash is a very common and people around the world experience it from time to time. In many cases however, a PC crash can happen at the most inconvenient times. This can happen when you need to finish a financial report, when you need to pay your bills online or when you need to order groceries. This is one of the reasons why you should do what you can to prevent a PC crash from happening in the first place.

This is certainly true when preventing a PC crash from happening. This can be a very annoying an inconvenient occurrence. A PC crash can wreck schedules, delay the submission of important documents and hamper your daily life.A PC crash can be caused by a number of things. A crash can be caused by computer registry errors, overheated hardware components and hard disk errors. Computer registry errors commonly accumulate over time. Registry entries are modified every time you install or uninstall programs. As time goes by, your registry will develop many errors that will eventually cause a PC crash. The same is true for hard drive errors. Every time you save, delete or modify files on your computer, errors and corrupted files accumulate on your hard drive. Eventually, this can also cause your computer to crash. Over heated hardware, on the other hand, is caused by bad ventilation and extreme temperatures. This can easily be remedied by placing your computer in a cool and well-ventilated area.

Crashes are caused by various factors but one of the most popular reasons are due to excessive downloading and installation of different applications, features or what not. These may cause the regular computer to work significantly slower than its potential speed and can irritate most users. With the increase in popularity of different software applications in the market, more of the kids these days buy online games and other software available online. Everything is online and the downloading process is so easy that virtually anyone can update and install any time of the day. The problem however comes in when your computer is over loaded with all these installations you feed into it daily.

  1. Defragment your hard drive at least once every 2 months. While some people only do this every year, there are actually many people who have never defragment their drives because they're unfamiliar with the process and its importance. Defragmenting your hard drive will help keep it healthy and it's something you can easily do yourself.
  2. Get a good anti-virus program and update it at least once a week. Some people actually update it every day on start-up. Most of the programs allow you to schedule the updates and the virus scan to run on a schedule that you choose.
  3. Make sure all important updates for your computer are done as needed. They are there for a reason - to keep your computer healthy and current with all new information and data. Also, make sure to run an adware/spyware tool at least once a week as well. You can find many free ones online that you can download. Finally, keep your firewall and pop-up blocker turned on to prevent intrusion into your computer.
  4. Delete all of your temporary internet files. Make sure the offline files are deleted as well. You can easily do this while on the Internet by going to "tools" on the top Internet Explorer and then selecting "internet options". Remove cookies on a regular basis as well as any unused files that are on your computer. By keeping your computer free from unnecessary "junk", you're also helping to keep your hard drive healthier.
  5. Provide regular maintenance on your email. By this I mean delete your spam emails and bulk immediately after receiving them. Any unknown emails should also be deleted. Only open email attachments that you know are from reliable sources. Make sure you have good spam and virus protection on your email.
  6. Back-up your computer on a regular basis - at least once a week, if not more. Put your data on a removable disk or tape. (Or better yet, back it up online) If your computer does crash, you won't be sorry you were so diligent about back-ups.
  7. Beware of what you download from the internet. Only download programs that are from secure sites that you know you can trust.
  8. Pay attention to what your computer may be telling you. If it's making an unusual noise, have it checked out. It could be the CPU fan, which is needed to keep the processor cool. If it malfunctions, it can cause all kinds of expensive damage.
  9. Avoid dust and smoke around your computer. Accumulation of dust, smoke, pet hair, etc. can also cause damage to the insider components of your PC.
  10. Avoid having too many programs start-up when your computer turns on. Only have what you need open.

What are drivers?


Drivers are small software programs that help control devices attached to your computer because drivers enable your operating system and other software to communicate with various hardware devices, controllers, and other peripherals. In other words, drivers work as instruction manuals that provide software with the information with regard to controlling and communicating with different hardware devices.
Why do we need drivers? Drivers help computers identify and run installed hardware. A device driver is a code that an operating system uses to control disk devices, display adapters, input devices such as a mouse or trackball, modems, fax machines, printers, and other hardware. Without drivers, computers will not be able to distinguish between a sound card and a modem. Most computer devices and peripherals need drivers to run, which means that computer accessories, such as printers, scanners and digital cameras also need drivers to function. This is what all computer hardware and accessories that are purchased come with drivers stored in either a floppy disk or a CD. A computer automatically loads the drivers when these disks are inserted in their respective drives.
Like any other software, drivers are upgraded and updated by the manufacturers to remove bugs, add extra functionality to the hardware or to improve the performance of the device. Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face problems ranging from the relatively minor, such as having hardware that seems to perform poorly, to the more major problems such as hardware failure, hardware conflicts and complete system crashes.
Choosing and installing the correct device drivers for a given hardware is often a key component of computer system configuration.
Where you can get Drivers? Drivers can also be downloaded from the websites of hardware manufacturers. You can download the most recent or updated drivers for your hardware. You can do this by navigating through each manufacturer’s website and searching for the page that allows you to download drivers for their products. However, there are some software (ex. Driver Robot) that automatically scans your computer, looks for the drivers you need, and automatically installs them to your computer. These kinds of software are very easy to use and they can ensure that you will have the most up-to-date drivers for your devices.

Of course, but it should be a major failure that would make them practically unusable - not your case. You most likely use IE and it's a POS that crashes with regularity when it's encountering a more demanding site. Just use another browser and your problem  will go away.

Hi ricky,

Try this, it may help with your issue. Click Start>right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager. Navigate to network adapters, choose your hardware, right click and choose "uninstall". Reboot, windows will detect new hardware and should reinstall the software and say " hardware installed and ready for use" or something to that affect. If this does not resolve your issue go to Advent website and down load new drivers software, the steps for this procedure are as follows:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newsounddrivers. Un-intall sound card and software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file -. Reboot, and go back to device manager and choose the the your network adapter just as before, this time choose update driver, windows will ask permission to check online updates, choose "No, not this time" and click next, choose " Install from list or specific location, choose this option and direct the wizard to your new sound drivers folder and follow remaining prompts.
