Two ideas.

1. You are using Torrent software and as we know, it will do that. If you feel it shouldn't then talk to the authors.

2. You didn't mention canned air and maintenance. Now's your chance to tell.

3. Windows 7 Ultimate did not come with this model. If this is not the maker's OS then again you are in an unsupported OS and may see issues. Easy fix. Go back to the supplied OS.

PS. Yes I have more than two ideas but I bet you won't like one.

Hi,tnx for answering me,yes you are right when you say this isn't his OS,I purchased this computer from a friend,and later I found out that he was using Windows Vista Home Premium when he was new,it cost me little money,and I didn't put Windows 7 on him,but i was thinking for such a system it's ok to have something new,because his configuration must handle this OS, I'm open for any other ideas or suggestion,I found a computer service in my town and they repair Acer's stuff,so i would talk to them to see what we can do,I appreciate any other suggestion,whether somebody knows if you can over BIOS find out,where the problem is,or maybe some program can help me to find out the real cause of this ? Thanks

The real cause.

Is usually too expensive to figure out. This is why I stick to the stock OS unless it's mine and I get a clear sign along with instructions for what BIOS, Drivers and more must be installed and in what order. I can't supply this for you. Only the maker knows this area as it changes for each laptop.

It does bring up a bigger question. How is the industry getting by with such dumb decisions?
We've had decades to get an OS that just works.
