Question about Acer Aspire 5003WLMi Notebook

Open Question

Thanks for your suggestions!

I'll have a look at the computer the next time I see that lady. I don't understand everything you're suggesting, but I'll run a spyware test and will have a look a the Windows update.
Everything else seems to be working fine with the laptop which is NOT used a lot (the lady is in her 70s!). She mainly checks emails, plays card games offline or works in Word.

Hi, I have an Acer Desjtop Aspire X1800 running Windows 7 64 bit. It has 4GB RAM, and 2.50Ghz processor, with Intel core2 quad Q8300. HD is 916GB. You would think this kind of setup wouldn't be prone...


Do a Crtl-Alt-Del and Select Task Manager. Look at the Processes and notice
which one is using up all your CPU time. A Virus or Malware/Spyware etc...
may take control of your PC and slow it down to a crawl. If everything looks
OK, then suspect your hardwares: DVD or Hard Drive(s). If one of the device
(mostly the Hard Drive) has an interface problem, as the CPU tries to access
it but has difficulties doing so, it will keep trying to access it again and again,
thus chewing up all the CPU time.
If you can't figure what it is, I suggest using one small hard drive only and do
a clean complete Format and Windows Installation.

I recommend running a few programs to make sure that you don't have a virus, spyware or adware hiding in your system. Avast is a free anti-virus tool that is very effective. Super-anti-spyware is great for getting rid of spyware, and Adaware is a great anti-adware tool --- both of these are also free. Try downloading these programs (all 3) and run them on your computer -- this will likely get your system running like normal. Once you have run these, run a disk cleanup and defragmenter to get everything into tip-top shape.

Netgear wna 3100 just all of a sudden stopped working and wont stay connected to internet or when it does connect it stops working within 5 min, whats wrong?


Hello. Have you tried uninstalling the driver on the computer, and reinstalling the most up-to-date driver for the adapter? If not, I would suggest trying this first. Otherwise, have you been using the usb drive for other things? It may also have to do with the Usb connection, or even the usb drivers. Try another usb device to see if they have the same issue. Many times, it involves the drivers.
Hope this helps and best of luck

Blank display on Saumsung T10


The only way to get the unit working is to press the reset. I have the same problem, also the main menu is very slow.... this is my experience from Samsung.

I took it back to Samsung, the first lady charged me $35 as deposit and told me that if I decided to fix it they will then take the $35 off the total. And if it cost too much to fix they’ll return my deposit. The same lady called me two days later saying there was something wrong with the PC board (I already know that there was something wrong, I just needed a quote on how much it’ll cost to fix the unit) and that it’ll cost me $238 plus labor to fix it. I was like no way I don’t want to do that I’ll just get a new one for $90. So the next day I rock up to Samsung Service Centre- Granville (ICURE) to pick up my MP3 and deposit, a second lady was there and guess what she didn’t give me back the $35, saying that it was a charge for quoting. That really pissed me off… I’m never buying another Samsung product.

So I hope I’ve save you guys from getting ripped off on the quoting.

You might have spyware blocking your computer. Or you hard drive could be full. Try the next steps and be patient. Rome was not built in a day. LOL Computer programs were not either. Get back with me after you try this and explain to me what you did. This way I can diagnose it like a doctor doing test on you.

Here it goes. Make sure that you install everything with the custom install or advanced. This also goes for the setup. Put everything to the highest setting. You might want to run the window washer first to clean the computer and then run it after everything is done.

Computer cleaning things to do.

Do everything
Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer (Second blue word files on my website on the downloads page on bottom)(First blue word can be used if needed). This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. ([email protected]) Go to the downloads page and click both of the (Blue) words (files) at the bottom of the page for extra's.

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire.

Do not rate this yet.

A virus in my pc


Dear Sir/madam,

This is malware/adware virus cookies. Sometimes happenend in yahoo, after that the system is crashing. Just download a best anti-spyware programme and scan it. It will detect and delete all the malware / spyware cookies. After that the internet is getting speed and runs without any problem.

Note : If your system antivirus with anti-spyware and all the total internet security features means u need to install before upon ur risk. Because it cause system slow....

Thanks
Good Luck

Computer constantly stalls


I you have installed all these programs. Then that itself could cause the problem. ununstall all these programs, go to www.free.grisoft.com, Download the free edition for virus and spyware, install these both update them on the net, run a complete scan for virus and sypware.

You should never install multiple security softwares at the same time. If you feel one software is not doing well. Uninstall it, restart your system, then install another software and do the scanning.

Menu problem


Run msconfig and figure out what is causing it and stop it.
Start - run-msconfig
That is the best way to stop a process from running.

Also could be spyware.
