Issues related to freezing of Acer® computer and tips to fix these problems are discussed in the following points:
One of the main reasons for the freezing of system could be the incompatibility of hardware applications. Your Acer® computer might freeze if you are running some heavy applications on it when the system cannot support it. In addition, there might also be an issue with the size of memory or with drivers, cards, etc. In other words, if you are working on some programs that require more memory without upgrading your computer, you might face a situation where the computer freezes.
In case of a system problem, please check what operating system it supports, for example, 64-bit version of Windows®. If the computer freezes, check your video card’s drivers and if necessary, update them. In another case, try to set the default settings of BIOS by restarting your computer and pressing ‘ESC’ button. You should also change the size of swap file by checking the memory of the computer. Acer® computer might freeze if the memory if less. Therefore, it is necessary to upgrade the memory to 4 GB.
If the problem still persists after updating video card’s drivers, then you should change the video card. This problem might come when you play contemporary, high-definition games. You could also try re-installing the operating system. Moreover, it is recommended that you install an operating system by keeping in mind the hardware configuration of Acer® computer. However, before reinstalling the system, you should copy all your data to CD, DVD or flash disk. After this, just follow the advice on your bootable DVD disk.
