Check Device Manager for driver problems

It sounds like you could be missing a driver or two. Anything having ! or ? in there needs a different driver. I'd check the Acer web site for your model and make sure I had all the right ones. Two that come to mind are chipset and one that affects data transfers to and from your hard drive.

Good luck.

very slow computer

It happens many times due to some sort of Malwares and such programs corrupt some files of the operation system and because of it such trouble occur. To avoid such thing better use good antivirus and scan your PC regularly.
