Windows 7: Clean Install W7 Home Premium_Prep

I've thought about that,but my lappy never overheats.I've even overclocked to a little over 1.9G-which isn't much-and ran Prime95 for 4 hours with no change in heat and with no issues.

I'll check the event viewer. Thank you again.

I'm sure you guys are getting tired of my whining.

Even viewer is full of errors and warnings.It will take me a while to look through this-and make sense of it.

I really think I am pushing to hard.I need to relax for a while and come back to it later.Hope to see you around.

PEACE.

You could have a look aswell in your "Reliability Index Score"...it might be clearer to trace errors and installs!

Concentrate on Repeat Errors in Event Viewer>Admin View. Google their number and some text to find out more about them, continue studying them if they repeat until you are fully aware of what they are and either know how to fix them or decide to let them pass.

This is an important way to learn more about your computer and gain confidence and control over it. Google is your tool for this, or check back here for tougher errors.

I lokked around,and so far have found nothing indicating the cause of the sudden shut-down.Reliability shows all is well,nothing but info on installing updates and such.It was like 40 up-dates.I was also downloading MSE and a couple of other things.

I know,Take my time.I was tired and a little frantic.I'm quite sure it was my impatience that caused this.I will give it a couple weeks and see how things work out.

I do have a few performance issues,and will post them later in new threads-per your instructions.

I am currently catching up on rest,so it may be a while before you hear from me.

Thank you. i will continue monitoring my new install.

See ya later.

Nothing Serious

OK,I've been studying Event Viewer.

Seems as though I can get rid of a couple petty problems by installing CCC.I think.My OEM came with it (CCC) preimstalled.I cant find it now,so a download from ATI is in progress.Internet speed is exscruciatingly slow,so I won't have resuls for a while.

I haven't found anything definitive on the DNS issue yet,but still working on it.

All-in-all,I am pleased with the performance of my laptop.No issues at all since I backed away from it for a while.

NoN,your previous reply to this whole issue was on time-Link#98--"Does it still says 30days before activation? If so, let it be for a while...."

I was amazed wen I saw what was in the installed programs list-nothing!I have never seen that before.Hell,I was more intimidated by uninstalling all the bloatware than the clean-install.(Mind you that the clean-install was no picnic for this hillbilly).

Bottom line........I should have done this when I first got this notebook.I just didn't have the knowledge until I came to Seven Forums.

I tend to trust the Win7 installer drivers, and the newer ones which arrive quickly after install via optional Windows Updates, unless they prove otherwise in performance. So see if any are cued in Optional Updates and try that Display driver first.

Then you can move to the driver given on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your computer model to try it. You do this in case they have modified the chip as some computer makers do.

Finally if still in error then use the ATI driver from their site.

Sometimes errors can be ignored if they don't manifest themselves in performance issues, but I agree that ATI error is too persistent and think you are on the right track, maybe just a step or two ahead.

Save the CCC download in your Downloads folder along with any other downloads. If you need to use it, I personally would try the ATI driver alone first, then the CCC package as a last resort. It runs services which need to be turned off in msconfig>Startup (the only thing I allow in there is AV and gadgets) unless you use special display controls.
