  1. Hello everyone, I ran into a problem, I bought a new computer in june, it worked fine, then a few days later i bought bigger speakers and a subwoofer, after (I'm not sure if it was because of the speakers) my computer started to freeze once per day, about 10-50mins from booting, only option was to hit the reset button, mouse wouldnt work and keyboard wont work, Nothing. After the reset it worked fine the rest of the day.
    This happens to me everyday and it's starting to get annoying.
    Wont work if I unplug the speakers so I think the don't cause it.

    One thing I noticed was before the freezing, the other fan always shows speed around 800RPM, but after it freezes and i reset, it spins around 1000RPM.

    I don't see why would a brand new computer do this, also my specs are good.

    Acer aspire M5300
    Amd Phenom II x3 720 2.8Ghz
    Nvidia GeForce 240GTS 2gb
    Ram 8gb
    Disk space 1000gb
    Windows 7 64-bit

    I appreciate your help very much, I want this problem solves without going into a computer repair.

    Could be an overheating problem. Check the system error log - control panel, administrative tools, event viewer, system also application logs. Anything red in there?

    Failing an obvious cause, Return to Manufacturer. The PC may have been poorly assembled, badly seated CPU for instance. Also check the fans are all turning for processor, video card (if any) and power unit.

    Application log has alot of red circles with a "!" on them and it says error, system log has a few warnings.
    Also the thing above the windows-logs has alot of errors too.

    OK, go to an error just before the latest seize-up or thereabouts. Double click the error, then there is a lot of description in the central box, under 'description.

    You can cut the message text and paste it here. Can you summarise the error lists in any way? Like 'application errors are mostly source=mpsmaplesubmission' or whatever?

    There are plenty of free programs to 'update your drivers and mess up your machine'. Beware, You very often stumble upon these whilst searching for other things. All too many of these are scams designed to install rootkits, trojans, viruses and other things. Never use them !!! I am not saying there are not some reputable ones around, but knowing which they are is a black art.

    MS update can (usually) be trusted, as can the websites of the companies supplying your PC components, or the company supplying your whole PC, as appropriate. One reliable program which I personally can recommend is PSI secunia which will notify you of updates available for all your application software (but not drivers). Also revo uninstaller which can often resolve an uninstall which fails.
