Win 7 Pro-SP1
Acer Aspire laptop - 5738Z
Pent Dual core T4200 @2.00Ghz
Installed Mem: 4.00GB
Ive been experiencing several odd problems with my Acer laptop recently. I have tons of laptop specs listed below.
-Sometimes but not always when I turn on the laptop & begins loading normally. Many of the default programs begin to launch like Skype etc.. Then I abruptly get the dreaded BSOD
. I was scared at first. It said something like SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (not sure if that is exactly it
). Down below it said something about a memory dump
20% & climbing til 100%. Then it seemed like the PC would reboot & start up fine. **Any idea what that is all about?
-Occasionally when Im moving, creating file, renaming & seemingly making any changes to folder or files nothing happens. For instance you go to a folder new folder name it save but it does not appear. You click away from the folder, then back to it & presto the folder shows up. ** Any ideas why this happens?
-I recently have been having an issue when I plug in my Camcorder via USB to transfer files to my Laptop the PC doesnt detect the Camcorder. I thought it was the Camcorder but when I unplugged the USB mouse & plugged it in the mouse was dead. I plug the mouse back to its original port & now that port is dead too. The only fix to all these problems was a reboot.
**Any ideas why this happens?
-The vast majority of the time when I select Reboot or Shut down the Laptop gets stuck at Logging off. Ive let it still for 45 mins with no change. I looked at the blue light indicating the system is working on something & there is nothing but an intermittent flash of light. I have to hold down the power button to make it shut down.
**What might cause that hang up?
I listed all these problems because they all seemed to start happening about the same time. Approximately 2 months ago. I thought they might be connected. Im not sure when I downloaded SP1. Could that be the root of the trouble. I have several pictures from task manager to show the status of the PC after a reboot. Maybe something can be learned there.
*** I takes forever for the laptop to completely boot up. I think its close to 7-10 mins until the blue processing light finally slows down.
**That cant be normal?
Id appreciate any help I can get. Sorry for the long post.
