Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

System keeps freezing NO TASK MANGER OR POINTER OR KEYBOARD, also event viewer shows no sign


Answers :

It could be that your Hard Drive is almost gone, or, that the system file is corrupt (but you would get a system error with this, pls advise if you do). In the case that your HDD is dying, I would recommend that you try and backup all your data asap to an external USB Hard Drive.

If you do happen to have another working computer around you can try this, but first you need the following:
1 external USB Hard Drive case that matches your PC Hard Drive fitting, ie. IDE or SATA.
2. A Windows XP cd with serial key.

If you do, then carefully disconnect all power to the problem PC, and carefully remove the Hard Drive.

Open your external USB drive case, and carefully remove the HDD, be careful not to drop any of the HDD - treat it with care.
Now insert the problem HDD into the fitting/connection that is either IDE or SATA, matching your case's fitting.
Close the case, dont have to insert the screws at this point, and hook it up to your spare working pc.
It should pick up on the screen as an external USB drive.
First, scan it for any viruses and clean it if any picks up.
Now locate all your data from Documents and Settings/Username/Desktop and My Documents and Favourites too.
Copy these files to your spare PC's Desktop with a New folder created and labeled.
After you transfered all your data, then disconnect from working PC, remove case of external usb drive, remove the HDD of the problem PC and insert it back into the PC body.

Insert the WinXP cd into the CD ROM drive and wait for it to boot from CD, then attempt a repair. Else, reinstall XP and follow the instructions on the screen - they're user friendly, and dont be scared:)
