I have a Acer Aspire M3802 with Windows 7 64bit that I bought in December 09. I have many games one of them is Sims 3. what happens is that when i play any of my games for about 10-15 minutes in gameplay, the monitor shuts off but my computer light is til on and my keyboard doesnt work. It is ceraintley not BSOD. It mostly sound like a broken record. I have updated evrey driver restored the computer many times. Ive took it in to Frys Electronics. Ive did evrey patch for the game. Ive troubleshooted compatiblity but thats no help at all. Now the games started crashing in the summer around June. My internet crashed startin in march. But its fixed now. Soemone help me plz plz im beggin ive been dealin with it for 3 months starights i think it might be one of the windows updates.

Internet Explorer should suffice for this.

Our university has a blackboard site, and recommends Firefox. I think it was initially having problems with IE8. Don't know if that's the case now.

Ah, they've taken the recommendation down. Must have resolved whatever issue there was...

I've used Blackboard recently and had no problems whatsoever with Internet Explorer 8. Try the IE 8 compatibility mode or if all else fails, you can try Firefox.

Are you saying only IE8 works or that nothing works, including IE8?
What's wrong with Starter? All versions of Windows 7 should run any available browser. But if you need to upgrade, I think there is something called an "In-place upgrade" that allows you to to pay an upgrade price and convert any version of Windows 7 into a higher version. That is, unless higher versions are not supported by the hardware.

Can I remote desktop from windows 7 starter to any computer with XP or 7, without upgrading to 7 Premium? I am looking to buy a net book that has 7 starter loaded on it, but if it can't remote connect then I need to rethink it. I know most net book's do not have enough RAM to run 7.
