Question

Acer Aspire One D257

by kingjulien / November 3, 2012 5:48 PM PDT

I am having a Acer Aspire One D257 , originally it had MEEBO as operating system ,.however I replaced this with Windows 7 ,
I am frequently facing problems with the system performance .the netbook is only being used for internet browsing and at the max some video streaming purpose only.
However most of the time the system hangs; browser ( chrome or Firefox), explorer/folder windows all hang .
Sometimes it the shockwave in Google chrome crashes.
The video streaming and other flash player sites do also result in system hanging.
Also even if I leave the system idle for 9-10 minutes, it then hangs again, even though its not gone to sleep
One more thing is that the frequently it takes time to shut down too, though the start up time is fine,.

Could anyone try to help out with my problem here.
