On Wednesday, I used my Acer Aspire One D270 Netbook for close to 5 hours with Internet and it ran fine.
I decided to turn it off during lunch and after 30 minutes it refused to log me back in..
Win 7 (ultimate 32 bit) hangs on Welcome screen, going around in circles.. Did hard reboot but didnt help..
I even received an error which did not even let me log on but I rebooted again and it went away..
Suprisingly the Netbook which is meant to run Win 7 has Windows Xp in C: drive. It didnt load there either..
Did some think back and suspected ESET Smart Security
version 3.0 update which I did may be the problem, managed to get to safe mode and restarted. This time netbook loaded after a while at the Welcome screen, but was as slow as a snail. After over 1 hour of uninstall time I removed ESET Smart Security
Restarted netbook and the battery drained after 30-45 minutes while still Win 7 still hanged on Welcome screen..
What could be the problem? I have seen other threads but most are for PC.. This is a netbook , is that a problem? Any issue with hardware/OS/Memory or Graphics?
What else should I try out?
Thanks for any suggestions.. Please spare the sarcasm..
This is my only access to Internet.
