Check and see if its getting hotter than it use to...If so it might need to be cleaned or the fan replaced...the only cheap solution that i could think of is like I had a friend do when he had this prob...Get a usb cooling pad for it...places like compusa or other computer dealers norm carry one..search online and look for lap top colling and you should pull some good ideas...the other prob could be a virus or spyware...they can over load the system and make it just shut down to save its self...but from what i read it might be overheating..

Mine does the same thing. But when I run it with an external keyboard, it doesn't freeze. I have replaced the keyboard, the hard drive and the power jack (burned to toast), to no avail.

    Also, I have NO extra programs running, not even the Acer Ferrari built-in programs. My Ferrari runs much cooler since I replaced the factory installed Windows XP.

I have the same problem. I think it is a bios issue, regarding powered mode and travel mode.

SOURCE: Random Memory access freezing.

YESS I HAVE:
Possibilities read on this pics:

http://www.imagehost.ro/pict/07033320473115e0c6226.JPG

or :

Go to C/windows and look for a folder called Faultlog.txt. Open it and it should display all the faults that have occurred. Post a few so we can see if theres anything in particular thats causing it.
OR:
i would suggest that you reboot and get into Windows. Press [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Delete] and click Task Manager. On the Performance tab, it will give you a reading for the amount of processor usage (which should only be a few percent when the system is sitting idle) and another counter for the amount of memory usage (this should be 192Mb, i.e. 196608Kb, or less). Minimise Task Manager.
When your PC starts freezing or looks like it's about to (if you can tell when it's going to happen), then try and bring up the Task Manager window again from the taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Has the processor usage shot up? What has happened to the memory usage? You might need to resize your screens so that you have the Task Manager running at the side whilst you continue working - that way, you'll be able to keep an eye on what's going on.
Give us some feedback about your results and we'll try and diagnose it further :)

and please if my solution was helpfull rate it as SOLVED

SOURCE: Acer Aspire One, Screen turns strip-y grey/white

hi there, my sisters dell laptop does the same thing. My best guess is that a hard knock on the graphics card and knocked a few pins out of it. This is something that a average person can not do. My suggestion is to bring it to a computer shop and tell them that you think it's the monitor connections.

Laptop is freezing randomly. sometimes doesnt work at all. sometimes only parts work.. keyboard, mouse etc. sometimes wont turn off. sometimes freezes then responds 10 min later

Seems like really hard problem, maybe something with laptop motherboard. But on other side, it can be just some virus. Try google for Eset Online test and let it scan your computer for viruses. its free. Always use good antivirus. One of best is Avast. And its free. Download it from avast.com (Home edition).

IMAC SCREEN FREEZES OR GOES BLACK.

same thing happens to me - most of the time it will just randomly freeze; occasionally i get an unresponsive black screen. this 24' aluminum imac usually has startup problems also - sometimes it will "gong" and nothing else; sometimes the apple logo will come up and then nothing else; sometimes it will load the logo and then spin for a few seconds and then freeze - the only option is to manually shut down. there is no rhyme or reason to it

Gateway freeze randomly it just screen freeze

If you can, download Combofix, Vundofix, smitfraudfix, and malewarebytes.

Boot the computer in Safemode, and then run each program, one at a time of course.

If this doesn't fix the problem, then it will at least verify that it's not a virus related issue.

My new Acer PC has freeze problem often

A freezing problem can be any number of things.
Remove all peripherals first. on't use a mouse, external monitor, printer, etc... Rule that out.
In order to rule out a software problem, you should restore to original factory configuration. The computer may have come with a CD that you boot with, or you may have to press <ALT><F10> during boot to access the restore partition. If you do not do this, then you are on your own in trying to figure out if it is indeed a software problem that you have.
After restoring...if it still freezes... you obviously have an internal hardware problem. Is it new? Warranty you have.
Old? Bough it used? Clean the fan. It's probably dirty and overheating. Overheat is usually an immediate shutdown, but it could be another chip besides the CPU overheating and causing your problem.
