    When it freezes, does it make an odd, repeated noise? If so, I'm having the same problem, I'm also on an Acer Aspire.

    Usually if system freezes like this during idle/or use logs of windows event viewer can help you spot what may be causing this. Go to Control Panel / Admin Tools / Event Viewer, and check for system /applications logs; usually anything with yellow or red tag is worth having a look at.

    I noticed the original poster hasn't posted this year, but I've just ran that and none appear to be red or yellow. I have my own thread though, so I'll stop hi-jacking now n_n
