My acer aspire one netbook lags and sometimes freezes when I play audio PLEASE HELP

As with any computer, after a while it's going to start to slow down because of programs and files being added and your computer will become memory hungry. Do you have alot of programs installed on to it or files installed on to your netbook? and are you multitasking when you are playing audio like using windows media to play it? If so, your netbook can't handle all the treads from the program because it's underpowered. The Acer netbook is underpowered to do multitasking. It is only meant for internet browsing and typing. It is not meant to be handle like a laptop. If I am correct your version comes with 1gb of ram only and you may need to upgrade your memory to 2gb which is the max allowance to help ease the lagging. However you can also try defragmenting your drive too, but as recommendation, you will have to upgrade you memory.

I have an Acer aspire one netbook. As soon as i turn it on, it shows the first screen that is black with ACER on it, but it just freezes there. I can't access the computer unless i press F2 and exit setup....

Looks like there is something wrong with the registry database of your computer. Best way to fix is to clean Windows registry using some reliable software such as Reginout and start your computer normally. Also do the following.

> Limit your startup programs

> Uninstall unwanted programs

> Disable background running services

How do I activate the web cam on my Acer Aspire One notebook?

I'm guessing it's a built-in camera. In this case, if you open a program such as Skype or MSN messeger, you will have a pop-up window saying that the program has identified your web camera, and would you like to set it up.
otherwise, these built in cameras have program which allows you to record images and mainly set your camera. Check in your "Start" menu for such a program

Laptop computer lagging horribly

You have something running in the background that is eating up the CPU useage. You need to identify which process is doing this.

Use the built in task manager, using ctrl-alt-delete to bring it up, and see which process is at above 90% cpu usage. Then post back here what you find.
