One of the most common causes of freezing and locking up is faulty memory another is overheating problems.
Check the memory by running Memcheck.
Type mem in the search box after clicking start and run the diagnostics.
Check the vents are not blocked with fluff etc and the exhaust is blowing warm air.
Hope that helps.

My laptop will not start


If this is the first time that you turn on your laptop after resetting it to the factory settings then don't do anything while setup is starting services because you will just mess up the computer. It's really gonna take time to start the services. It's still in the set up process - it's loading some files on it.

I hope this helps!

Try to 'recover' to factory settings or 'restore' to a prior time when the laptop didn't freeze up. May have contracted some malware.

My Acer 5102WLMI Laptop will not start completely without giving me error messages and then freezing, what do I need to do to fix this problem?

It appeats that some of the Operating System files are missing. I advise you to perform a full system restore so that it will be back to factory settings. You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.
Thanks and regards,

Acer apire 3000 keeps freezing!

The first, best thing to do is to back up your data and do a system restore. Acer's have the restore function usually built into their acer system management software.

Restoring the computer will solve most issues. If you keep having issues after the restore you probably have a hardware error like a bad hard drive or bad memory.

Be sure to back up any important data as the restore will erase everything from the hard drive and set it back to the way it came from the factory

Good luck!
