That's a good video Greg, I like it. If you still want me to, I'll look around and post back if I find any others.

It's a shame that link doesn't work, I posted about the error on their page, I'm still waiting for "moderation".

Sure having a written tutorial to go with the video would be even better.

Thanks again, Anak. Please keep the suggestions coming!

4. Study the Event Viewer>Custom>Admin view for repeat errors to google text and ID# to find out how others have resolved them. Event Viewer - Open and Use in Windows 7


Correct me if I'm wrong, but I gather that the event viewer is a tool used for gathering information while troubleshooting, but is there a repair function within Event Viewer or does the event viewer typically give you some indication how to remedy these repeat errors?

I went into Advanced Tools and I noticed an error which said that I had a driver which Is causing Windows to resume slowly but whenever I checked the driver from device manager it said that the driver is the latest driver available.

That's part of the ATI display driver package. So look at your Display driver in Device Manager, click on Driver tab to Update Driver automatically to see that it has the latest from Windows Update, or check the Acer Downloads webpage for your model. If so and the error persists then try the latest driver from the ATI Downloads site, first trying their auto-detect driver link.

Be sure you also don't allow the ATI Catalyst bloatware to start with Windows in msconfig>Startup or >Services (after Hiding all MS Services). I personally do not install it or uninstall it as it's often problematic. Most users who don't overclock only need the driver itself.
