Answers :

No this appears to be a problem that is not just happening once... I've been having the same problem... but my problems were worse... my motherboard and hard drive were both fryed by this problem... I had to send it in to acer and they replaced these items but the computer still froze up and died after I had installed windows media player 11 and aol... so I am starting to think it is media player's fault because someone else has mentioned they had installed it.... I'm actually sending it back to acer tomorrow and they are picking up the tab this time on shipping... (I'd be one unhappy customer if they weren't)... I'll let you know how it goes whenever I get my computer back again... only when I do I'm not installing media player....
It sounds like you may have some corrupted system files. You should be able to repair them using your Windows XP installation CD and the steps out-lined in this article.\015\012\015\012http://www.short-media.com/review.php?r=313
