|I am having a sudden issue. I turned my computer off the other night and in the morning turned it on and Windows would not fully load. It would get to the desk top and a couple things in the Quick Launch bar next to the clock, but the computer acted like it was still trying to load and wouldn't allow anything to be done. The speaker icon and power icon still hasn't appeared. And I'm not like some people and have 20 things popping up down there...I keep it to a minimum cuz I don't like background programs hogging resource. Anyway, I was helpless, IFFF the cursor moved it would be minimal and seconds after the stroke on the touchpad was made. clicking on anything once you fought to get there was impossible. After many restarts, power downs, and removal of power, every once in a while I can get it to function ok. I was able to install and run all of the AV, spyware, etc that I found on another thread, and a couple things were found, but nothing serious...yet it is still acting up. I even went as far as putting in another hard drive that had OS already on it that loads on every other computer just fine, but in this computer it acts the same...sometimes It'll work and other times it wouldn't get past the username/password. I finally got all of the drivers installed, and still acts up most times. I just don't know what to do...WHEN I can get task manager to pull up (even using ctrl alt del it doesn't always work) It shows that between system process and system idle process takes between 70-100% of the processor and System will vary from 40-90% but mostly on the higher end. I just don't know where to turn. I ended up putting original hard drive back in. I only put a spare on in to get the laptop functional while I fixed the OS on the original...so we didn't have to go downstairs. I have NEVER had as many problems with computers until my fiance brought this Acer laptop in to the relationship. I dunno if this is anything or (probably) just a coincidence, but it seems it works much better when I take the battery out and leave it out and just function off AC...which we function off AC all the time anyway as the battery lasts about 5 min. Like I said, a long shot, but has anyone noticed issues with having a bad battery installed?|
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank You in Advance,
